Hi All,

Is there a place online to find songs played by multiple insturments so that i can practice shaping?

Also is it a midi file as raw that i can find to work on? Or

Notations for muliple instruments for one song that i have to plug them in Cubase and shape each instrument individually then put it all together?

How does everyone do that? do you just play a song on your keyboard, record the midi then shape it, and you do that for voilins, brass, woodwind, percussions, piano, etc?

Thanks.

-John

All free: start with https://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Composers and www1.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Composers

Many entries include MIDI files, and some even include Sibelius, Finale, or other source files.

Okay thanks.

Now the following question is going to be, is there a way to import PDF music notes directly to Cubase?

Sorry I can't comment on Cubase's capabilities. I'm a Sibelius user and I use Photoscore software to do the "note recognition" (you know, like optical character recognition, only for music) with impressive results (provided the PDF is legible and also not miniscule). That's step 1. Another Music Recognition program exists which works nicely with Finale, called "Smart Score", which, I think uses the same "engine" as Photoscore. They advertise as "music-to-xml-music notation recognition"... so if Cubase can import music-xml I'd go for that software as your intermediate step. 

HTH!
