  1. Thanks very much for the feedback! I'm learning a lot! I swapped out the second chord (a major third) for something in key, but it would be easy to put it back. (I think the rest are the same as the original, at least until the second half.) RE the drums: I if understand correctly, I need to boost the EQ of the range in which they're supposed to be playing, based on the tables on that site... right? (I am sure the reverb for them is also very weak - I only figured out today how to apply a reverb effect to the drums in Logic.) I will also add in something in the bass range - that was definitely sloppy! Thanks also for the clarification regarding the flute dynamics. (I've also been playing around with the EQ and reverb for the flute as well, and now have a sound that I'm more satisfied with, but I want to keep trying other stuff before uploading a revised version.)
  2. Lol, I might just try dropping the drums altogether then. I'll get working on a new version =] thanks again for the tips!
  3. Wow! That's really detailed! Thank you for being critical yet constructive. I will have another thorough look at the drums - I had problems with them before in other pieces, and still haven't quite grasped how to make them sound plausible. It is that there isn't enough variation, or an artificial-sounding timbre? Maybe you're right about the adjustments at 0:53 - I went full swing into a minor, and I guess it doesn't fit too appropriately. I'll have a think about how to add in variation here in a different way, relative to the first half. I have a quick question about the orchestral swell - I got some feedback on another piece that the flute shouldn't increase in volume past a certain point relative to the rest of the orchestra, but I was concerned about a lack of dynamic variation. Would it sound odd to simultaneously slightly increase the volume of the flute and decrease the volume of the orchestra relative to it's current volume? Many thanks once again!
  4. I recorded the flute part using a relatively basic mic, and then mixed it in Logic. I only added a little bit of reverb; what else could I do to make it sound better/more interesting next time? (I'm aware my tone deteriorates a little near the end, but this is a playing problem and not a recording/mixing one.) Many thanks in advance~
  5. Golden Sun

    At the risk of being accused of necromancy... I'm doing some of the mellower songs from Golden Sun (one per week) if anyone's interested: Dance of the Wolves (Garoh) Lemuria Imil I reckon my capacity at about ten songs Suggestions for which other ones to do would be welcome!
  6. The swing is a good idea I also agree about the lack of humanisation, and I will try to implement it next time. (I only started to learn about techniques for it recently, and haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet!)
  7. Many thanks to HoboKa and the other entrants for all the hard work, and to everyone else for their constructive comments! Looking forward to seeing what's up for the next round.
  8. Looking forward to it being fixed! (Just tried, still no luck.)
  9. No confirmation email for ThaSauce

    I'll drop them a message. Thanks!
  10. Not sure what the best place to post this is, but... I want to upload a submission for a competition at ThaSauce listed on the OCR forums: But I can't register for an account, because I am not getting the confirmation email. Any help for this?
  11. I have a remix... but I'm not able to get the confirmation email at ThaSauce, so I can't upload it there. (I've registered with the same username.) Any help?
