Ok so the whole deal with the Forerunner Map pack kind of fell apart a long time ago and for some reason I never got around to posting the maps. Upon completion of my newest map I decided to throw them all together and call it the Sykotic Map Pack and post them for you guys. There are four multiplayer maps in total which fully support all gametypes except Invasion and Race. Map details and download link below. Download link takes you straight to the file set containing the maps and their respective loadout pics. That's all folks. For now. Enjoy the maps. Yeah.

As you should all know by now Reach has a level cap of Lt. Colonel Grade 3. Bungie has already stated that the community has to complete 117 million daily and weekly challenges in order to lift it. Head over to Bungie.net to see where our current progress is at lifting the cap. You will find that we are extremely close to this goal. So in order to possibly reach that goal today I am going to provide you guys with a few tips to get todays challenges done.

Birth of a Spartan is not coming along so well. I have had a few technical difficulties with Finale and have finally fixed a few problems only to realize that this song is very hard to put into sheet music. I cant seem to find a way to get it to sound right. I have the entire song figured out till the end from what I believe to be the correct notes but I am kind of stuck putting the part where Carter is about to recieve his augmentations into shet music. I havent found a way to put that part on Finale yet but in time it will happen.

Here is my arrangement of the song "Epilogue" from the Halo Reach Official Sound Track. I have only the transcribed the beginning part, which is called "Spartans Never Die", because it is the only part that is actually played on the piano. No I will not be attempting to finish the rest of it. If there is another transcriber out there who would be willing to do so feel free to use this as your starting point. This song is my personal arrangement and was not intended to be note for note so please don't leave comment on mistakes that you have found.

Here is the song "Ashes" from the Halo Reach Official Soundtrack. I've finally gotten around to getting this up. This piece takes a little practice to play but overall it's not very hard. Have fun playing and enjoy the sheet music!

UPDATE 5/6/11: Fixed inconsistencies in the sheet music. Big thanks to Pedrotome for the help. Also added the midi for Orchestra Kat's cutscene version.

I have finally finished updating all of my transcriptions. If you still happen to notice a mistake in the sheet music then by all means let me know. I have also updated my blog on how to open .mus files. People were complaining that I was not specific enough on the walkthrough. Well, it is now very specific and you should have no trouble getting through it at all. Once again, if you are still having trouble understanding anything that I've said, say, or will probably say, then send me a private message, email, or just leave a comment...understand???

I finally finished putting together the E3 2007 theme for piano. It is fairly difficult to play but it is still possible. I went to my old "Halo Main Theme Extended Maw Version" transcription and added parts from the E307 trailer. There are a few mistakes that I could not fix but overall I think it sounds pretty good. The file is for Finale Printmusic 2009. Don't have it? Use this link to find out how to get it:

Now that I have downloaded Printmusic 2009, I am now able to do many things that I was not able to do before with Notepad. I am able to make the sheet music look more professional. I will try to update all of my past submissions into this format of Finale.

Some features to look for in Printmusic 2009:

-Change Time Signatures
-Change Key Signatures
-Change Clefs and Staffs
-Specific Tempo Marks
-More Expression choices
-More Articulation choices
-More Note Choices
-Grace Notes

I have had a couple requests by email to post the revised version of Siege of Madrigal. The only BIG difference is that I have included parts for voice instead of flute. Note: You can change the instrument's sound and volume by clicking on window and then instrument list. Select pan for volume control. If you dont have Finale Notepad 2009 then use this link to find out how to get it:

Ok I am certain that this piece is now as accurate as it can get without being the real deal. I have taken all of my transcriptions as well as Halo Dragon's transcription and combined them together to create one perfect Never Forget. I fixed all areas that sounded wrong from Halo Dragon's transcription and also added my fixed parts to the song. Some parts are marked as optional as they are not actually in the song and unneccessary to play. I have included them in the transcription because they make the overall song sound much better.

This is the theme that you hear as soon as you find Cortana. In the file it will show parts for the violin, cello, and of course the piano.

UPDATE:I have changed a few errors, added some missing notes and adjusted the tempo of the song. I also changed the time signatures in a lot of places to make it look better. There is now a pdf.
