No problem, just send me (Mike) a Conversation message and I'll get you sorted, by which I mean hammered-into-obedient-line because I'm SO about having a lot of individuality-destroying, oppressive shit all over my forum.

    I decided to transcribe a few bars of one of my favorite Goldsmith themes from "The Edge."

    I just listened and played it all right into my DAW on piano, then decided to do the mockup.

    Here's a link to what I ended up with! The order is:

    1) Original

    2) My Full Mock Up

    3+) Brass, Strings, Perc-Pluck Stems

    I'd love to hear you thoughts! (I'm not sure what the winds are doing here - possibly just doubling the Cellos / Bones and Violins?)

    Here's a link to the PDF score:

  2. This sounds very good to me! Thanks for the score. Is that the real deal or your transcription?

  4. Sounds great, and very close to the original. What samples are you using?
