Congrats, Mark and Jan, on your latest work. It sounds great on the computer, on the ipod, on the stereo and in the car!

Yeah. What LittleWolf01 said.

Oh, and incidentally, during this "ugly" period, I find the "ubbthreads-dark" theme isn't quite as garish as the default lighter one.

Every one of the EP pieces was performed magnificently! My absolute favorite would have to be the 2nd/3rd Season Closing Titles... the lead-in drum beats followed by the rest of the theme being pieced together... well, let's just say I love it when artists do that.

My only nitpick (a small one) was on the 1st Season track, where we hear the drum hits that lead into the main theme, before the finale, and out of the main theme (ala "Mad Over Miami"); I could hear them, but I felt they weren't brought out enough, as in comparison to the ones heard on the "Mad Over Miami" Cuban attack run. Not trying to bash Mark or Jan for their hard and great work at all.

Just thought I'd add my two cents!

P.S. What are the chances for a full render of the 3rd Season Theme, as heard in "Kingdom Come" or "The Deadly Circle," for the 2010/2011 release?

Again, great job, guys! Can't wait for Airwolf Extended Themes!

Mark and Jan, you guys have outdone yourselves yet again. Simply marvelous thumbs.

My favorite has to be the first season synth. music. It's uplifting.

By the way guys, I noticed that you guys chose to compose lot of season 2/3 themes? How so? I get they are great but season 1 too has lots of great tunes. What about the orchestral from episodes like Echoes From The Past or Pilot itself?

Many thanks guys. Jan really nailed everything as far as I'm concerned and the credit has to go to him.

Airwolf04 / Wolf873 -- pretty much everything listed in your posts will be addressed in the later, CD release of 'AIRWOLF EXTENDED THEMES'.

Gotcha beat. I already did this with my iPod. Driving from A to B hasn't been this much fun or quite this stylish in a while.

I've just purchased the MP3 pieces of Airwolf Main Themes EP and they are really wonderful.

Mark and Jan, I appreciate your devotion and hard work for it. Thanks.

OMFG... nod

I'm so excited listening to the tracks through my earphones at work, that I think I've just let a little bit of wee out... blush

The 1st Season Main Theme Extended has SERIOUSLY taken me right back to the age of 11 when I sat slack jawed staring at the TV every Friday night watching this magnificent sleek metallic beauty rise out of her wintry hiding place, howling and screaming as she glides majestically through the snowy terrain.

Awesome, gentlemen, truly awesome and entirely as I expected it to be - PERFECT.

thanks thanks thanks

Enjoying it so far, i do however have to make note of something in the first track, at around 4:45 when the music enters its "da da da daaa" section first time around it plays 4 times then 3 times. Just sounds slightly strange like an extra slice has been added and not noticed.

gerv, if you have your Airwolf Season 1 DVDs handy check out "Proof Through the Night" finale aerial. That's where I got this extra chunk from!

Well, that's what I was trying to accomplish. I'm glad it works out!

Season 1 synth theme has always been my personal favorite and it took a lot of time to produce a version that was acceptable... to me!

Not that you said that, maybe it should be a little more prominent, but to excuse myself let me just point out that if you compare the dynamics of "Mad Over Miami" and "Fight Like a Dove" synth themes, they sound completely different anyway and yet it is the same theme.

Glad you like it. My long-time favorite as well.

Well, Season 2 had the highest number of different variations of the theme and there will be even more of them on Airwolf Extended Themes.

Well, they're great too wink

Seriously though, orchestral versions are not easy to deal with. I either need a real (read: expensive) orchestra or sophisticated (read: expensive) hardware/software synthesizers. I won't give a "yes" or "no" for the time being wink

The theme id love to hear is from the episode (can't remember its name right now) where near the end airwolf is in the back of a cargo plane, falls out parachutes etc and engages migs. That theme to me really captures all of what airwolf is about.

.

You'll also hear the orchestral theme (which is what Jan is referring to in the topic above) can also be heard prominently in the "PILOT" and other 1st Season eps. Sly Levay even brought it back again (albeit it mixed with synth) in the 3rd Season "EAGLES" episode.
