I can relate to "ugly" engraving, but what do you mean by faulty? Do you see any mistakes on those sample pages? Or did you buy the Batman score and there were many mistakes in that?Was excited to see the mail but simply a look at the sample pages shows the same faulty and ugly engraving.
Recently, on the Dorico Facebook-group I mentioned regarding a members scoring example, that ties where superfluous on tremolo. But (mostly referring to some notation book I never read) some say it is not and they laughed at my ignorance.Ties on tremolo.
I meant in general. Elfman does have his creative input however, but I just thought it kind of funny that his cursory experience with orchestration would be reflected in printed scores of his projects XD
As I was writing my list I thought to myself: Someone's gonna pick out 'ties on tremolos' and disregard the rest of my list I know it's a more recent trend but I find it totally superfluous.Recently, on the Dorico Facebook-group I mentioned regarding a members scoring example, that ties where superfluous on tremolo.

Just a little example, that in notation there are standards, but these may greatly differ depending on who you ask ...
Not to argue about the omni publishing scores, though! I totally agree that they do not look like being edited by someone who is really good at this. Still a good learning resource regarding orchestration.
I agree with this completely and they aren’t designed to be performance editions.Speedy delivery too. This really is a must have if your interested in Film Music , Orchestration or Danny Elfman . It's beautifully made. Has a robust analysis of the music with a break down of each cue . it's really a one man operation out of his house in the Valley...we need people like him in this world !

You sure about that? Looks like it was actually Steve Bartek.
I might know someone who would disagree with you about Elfman's orchestration abilities. No disagreement that Shirley Walker was legendary though.
I call it weird science.What i find fascinating is that Burton knew that he wanted Elfman doing his scores after seeing him perform in Oingo Boingo. He took the biggest gamble on Elfman, someone who had never done any film compososing. Call it director's intuition. Call it fate. Call it whatever. We got some of the best film music ever to be written because of it.
