Transcribing orchestral cues.
Since I\'m fairly new to the world of orchestration, I thought I would try and transcribe some orchestral cues. The first cue I chose was track #2 from Thomas Newman\'s \"The Shawshank Redemption\". The problem I\'m having is that the viola line frequently gets overshadowed by the orchestra especially when the horn section comes in. I\'m assuming that this is a fairly common problem (inner lines) when transcribing for orchestra. Any work-arounds, or do you make an educated guess at the viola line in those spots? Anyone do this for a living, offer any tips? Anyone who has already transcribed this cue or is interested, want to compare notes?
