As another test of my recently constructed orchestral template, I made a mock-up of the Stargate SG-1 TV theme.

The arrangement is by Joel Goldsmith, but based on the original themes from the movie by David Arnold. The mock-up is entirely made with libraries from the EastWest Hollywood orchestra series… so Hollywood Strings, Brass, Percussion and Winds.

Listening back with fresh ears, the mix is a little dry (lacks some reverb) that the original had (check it out here:, but I’m really happy with how the template is shaping up – and how musical it is to work with. It’s taken some time to really get my head around the libraries, and what they can do, but I finally feel like I’m getting there. I might post about it in more detail in the near future.

Not much else to say, really. Enjoy 🙂
