    TONIGHT! *ALL* of you will believe GPO CAN FLY!!

    Hey y'all! Craig Reeves back on it, conducting John Williams' awesome work: The Superman March!

    John Williams is one of my favorite composers and is my favorite film composer. This is probably my favorite movie theme by him. That's why I felt the need to get the score and perform this brilliant work. Another reason I wanted to put this together was to put to bed the whole notion that GPO can't do big Hollywood film score type music very well.

    Not a lot else to say here except the fact that I really worked hard on it. I think it turned out well. I wanted to make it sound like a live performance rather than a recording. This took me over a week and half to do.

    Here's what I did:

    Basically, everything is GPO except the snare drum, which comes from the Garritan Concert and Marching Band library. I like that snare a lot better. Anyway, the rest of it as far as I know is from GPO. All of it was sequenced and mixed in Cakewalk Sonar 7. Anyway, it's all here. Feel free to put this on the Garritan website as well, btw. Enjoy!

    Lots of fun. That film score is also one of my favorite works by Williams.

    The only weakness in the GPO recording is, sadly, the strings. I can hardly wait, for this simple reason, for the next iteration of GOS.

    You took the words right out of my mind.

    The only problem is the strings! Then again GPO is $150.

    Anyway, this is really great. I love how it came out.

    Hi there Craig!
    I thought you did a swell job with this! Whatever you had on the bass instruments really gave them some gravity, which I enjoyed!!
    Thanks for posting!

    Best regards,

    Ah man, thank y'all so much! I really appreciate the comments. Trying to get the hang of GPO again, it's been a little bit since I used it.

    Great job on this Craig. I've always loved this march and even transcribed it for our high school marching band many years ago.

    I agree with comments made so far but despite the samples' shortcomings it's a brilliant job conducting and rendering. Absolutely brilliant.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. Yeah, I agree with y'all about the strings too. I'm sure GOS 2 is on it's way and is gonna be hot! I remember how good GOS was!
