    Theme from Superman

    I actually "finished" this about five months ago, right around the time Christopher Reeve died actually...so I haven't gotten around to posting it until now, but it would be interesting and nice to hear your comments. Its part GPO (perc., woodwinds, some other overlays) and part--literally--everything else I could throw at it at the time! Also its part from midi part arranged from ear, and then just part plainly arranged.

    WOW! This is fantastic! Such a hard piece to GPO. Lots of fast moving strings and brass stabs to tackle. Very nicely done! Are we about to start a John Williams tribute? Anyone else got any of his stuff GPO-ed? I'd love to hear em!

    Thanks Matolen/Mark for posting this

    Thanks alot Kin! I appreciate your nice comments. I am especially appreciative since I know you did that great work-up of Jurassic Park (trade midis??)

    I love Williams, and wouldn't mind hearing more GPO and instrumental libraries of his famous themes. Indiana Jones? Olympic Marches? There is a lot of fun stuff out there.

    Nice. Only one thing I would play around a bit. The snare has no accentual qualities. Strokes are entirely same dynamic. Other than, it's quite an accomplishment. Back the rest of the percussion especially the cymbals to a level of compliment instead of dominance.

    Also transcribed and arranged by ear: the Star Wars Fanfare. Snare is mostly unquantized because of all the fiddy triplets ;-)

    EDIT - this is all GPO too, pre-update.

    Incidentally, any tutorials on quantizing percussion like snares anywhere? Really unfamiliar with how to do it.
