There aren't any places online that have tracks used on the show without the foreground sounds as well, like Kirk's commentary or the audience cheering.

That's the reason I made original MIDIs for my site; however, the temple run music is very, very complex, and I cannot figure it out by ear. :(

If you can't do the Temple Run song, do the song that plays when Olmec is explaining the rooms.

The "Olmec's advice" music is a little easier, as it features the same octave-fifth-major third-fourth sequence repeated in different keys.

I'll take a stab at picking out the temple run music on the piano, but it won't be easy, considering the audience noise and Kirk's commentary.  I can hear the organ chords pretty well, but the bass line and any percussion stuff will be tougher to pick out (aside from the famous drum roll at the end, that is).

Yeah, tha "Olmec's Advice" theme is the one I've been meaning to put on mys site for a while, though. The problem is that, in the song, the percussion is almost completely random, so I may just have to simplify it...

So many demands!

Here's a kind of off topic question, how can you make these themes on your computer?

I'm not necessarily going to make anything, but I'm just kind of curious how it's done.

Is there a program that is kind of like an electronic keyboard?  Or do you have to make the actual notes yourself?

I'm just curious, because I am very impressed with the files that were made, and it probably takes lots of time, frustration and hard work to get it done.

Even though people take these Legends sites for granted, we all thank you guys for putting these up, especially me because I know how to build websites somewhat, and I know how tough it is to make it, keep it updated, and looking good.

So even though some people are demanding changes, and new files all the time, some people appreciate it.

Kind of kissing ass, but oh well, there's not enough thanks going around.

Thank you very much. It is nice to be acknowledged once in a while. :) To make the MIDIs that are currently on the site, I first have to figure them out by ear using a piano. Later, I use a program called NoteWorthy Composer (I think their website is http://www.noteworthysoftware.com) which is a MIDI-maker, more or less. I can choose the note and its duration and place it in a continuously-modifiable on-screen piano roll. Eventually, I'll save it in MIDI format, at which point I upload it onto my Geocities account. For non-MIDI music files, I'm not as experienced, but editors are out there. :wink:

And for those who consistently point out the inaccuracies in my music (not that there are any on this forum), just remember that I actually have to figure out every song by ear to begin with.

I'm currently using the Sibelius 3 software notation program.  I'm composing (or recreating) the Legends cues using instruments that best approximate what we hear on the show.  I've written an "Olmec's Advice" file that uses soprano voices, bass guitar, and a variety of percussion (triangle, guiro, bongos, etc.)  Once I finished I saved it as an audio file.

Hello everyone,
About a month and a half ago, I created the temple run theme...since then i have made slight varaiations of the song. If anyone is interested in either versions, drop a line.
As Olmec would say"...the choices are yours, and yours alone..."

yes i am silversankeman. i sped it up to be about 3 minutes (minus the time's up explosion). and i made slight changes to make it more like the real thing. (i.e. instead of using church organ, im using accordian with the GM engine, but i also use the reed organ on Yamaha XG engines...which i think whoever wrote Legends music used anyway)

When you're ready, I'd love to have the updated version!

By the way, I'm going to move this to the Pit, because it doesn't exactly discuss the show.
