comment What purpose does adjusting the violin bow tension serve?
Does low bow tension allow for playing chords easier?

I just took a recording of beautiful bird song, nicely clean recording, and gave it to AudioScore. How right you are! I can write flute parts, with some effort, that resemble more birds than what I got.

Oh, good to know! It comes with Sibelius? That means I probably have it. Thank you.

Extensive edit to focus the question to what I wanted to ask. Thanks for the comments.

Thank you. Yes, I think I understood that from the above. Some natural sounds are more suited for transcription than others. Horse whinnying, was just the example I had in mind when I wrote the question. I am interested in the process of using technology to aid (to help myself with) the transcription of those natural sounds that are suited for it.

In my comment above the wording seem like I am asking also how to tweak the score, the MIDI file, to get the imitation better. That part is clearly each one's skills and creativity. Just getting the first approximation using technology is enough.

Thank you too, Kristina. That was the piece where I remembered seeing it, but I didn't remember the name.

This is a very very nice answer. It helps me a lot. I will definitely check the scores of the music you mentioned. Unfortunately I didn't emphasize enough the aspect of the question I was interested more. This is about the process of getting the actual notes. Those composers managed to get those bird sounds from being good at it. What I am looking for is a way to aid myself to make those imitations in the score. How to take a recording (say WAV file), turn it into notes (say a MIDI file), and then tweak the score by hand to get a better imitation. Thanks a lot.

Probably I didn't explain myself clearly. What I want is not about what harmonics to add and with that intensity to give a particular sound. I have a natural sound, the whining of a horse. And I have actual instruments. What I need it how to produce a musical score for, say trombone, to produce a similar sound. Or at least to produce a score that can serve me as a guide to then get the whining of the horse with the trombone.
