Thank you guys for your patience.  I know Brandon was having problems with the FTP server or something like that but finally it's up!

A few notes and random thoughts:

-The intro theme song does not have all of the sound fx taken out. I think there are two transformation sounds left in there that I couldn't take out.  But for some reason it doesn't bother me; it sounds pretty natural.  Having said that, I actually didn't take anything out to begin with, the original track that Vector Sigma I used didn't have the sound fx except for those two transformations.  I did add some cymbals and hi-hats from other versions and greatly enchanced it.  I think it sounds pretty darn good if I say so myself.

- At one time I said that "Wounded" was the worst sounding track but I no longer think that.  Sounds much better than I remember.  Amazing what a little distance and perspective will do for your opinion.

-The generic disco theme is what I am least happy with.  Has a lot of artifacts in it that I just couldn't get rid of.  There were so many versions of this to take samples from, but each of those had really heavy sound fx in the SAME parts which made it very difficult to get a clear sample of certain parts.

-It took a long time to do this soundtrack I admit; I made several passes on EACH of these tracks and took breaks that I feel were necessary along the way.  After the third or fourth pass, I would notice that I was making less and less changes because I was slowly ironing out all of the wrinkles that i was able to.  It's not a spectacular sounding soundtrack, but it's good and very consistent which was one of the most important factors for me that I was constantly striving for.

Enjoy

Jim

      JC, you can download the free Audacity program to convert the files to MP3 format.

      Thank you so much Jimbo for all your hard work on this!

      Is there any way to convert these files to mp3? I know that the sound won't be quite as good...

      Sounds good. Thanks for all your hard work. We're greedy though. We want the rest of the seasons too. :)

      Only 4 songs into it and it's already awesome. I've always thought that the transforming sounds in the intro are very natural as well--they are pretty much in sync with the rhythm of the music. Anyway, kudos to you guys. I don't think it's possible to overstate how significant this contribution is to the fandom. 32 years and still kicking!
