Minecraft - Calming Dawn (Calm 3/Sweden)

Here is my arrangement:http://soundcloud.com/willpisani/minecraft-sweden-1
Here is the source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl1SACrzPF8
I have a couple ideas left with regard to arrangement, but I'd like to get some general feedback before I continue.

[UPDATE] This is the song formerly known as "Sweden Reorchestrated".

[UPDATE 4-21-2012] Here's a link to the final version:http://soundcloud.com/willpisani/min...ming-dawn-4-21.

I personally really like it and would love to use it in a few of my minecraft videos.

Love the short intro before the voices and the remix still keeps the Minecraft vibe.

Glad you like it! As long as you give me credit, feel free to use it however you like.

Yeah, pretty much, but listening to the excellent remixes on OCReMix and trying to emulate them has helped a lot.

mod rev:

There are melodies that seem more keyboard-y than string-y. The sustained high string note in the intro might benefit from some expression automation, but I'd be more concerned about the melodies later on. Their slow attack give some semblance of a human performance, but they're still distractingly fake.

The panning seems a bit excessive, especially in the parts where you have one melody centered and another panned - such as the piano and high strings melody at 1:39. Don't remember the positioning of a real orchestral, but this track would benefit from a more even stereo balance.

The level is too low. It doesn't really get close to max until the ending, and even there it feels soft. The mid strings in the finale seem a little too loud, so those could be lowered a little. Removing lows from instruments that don't need them could give you a little more headroom, and some soft compression, both on the low strings and on the track overall, could give you some more. Repeat: SOFT compression. And a little eq.

It's pretty conservative. On the other hand, it's a far cry from a midi rip. Hard to say. This is what I get for not playing Minecraft.

-

ARRANGEMENT / INTERPRETATION
- Too conservative - I don't dare say either way, but it's possible

PRODUCTION
- Too quiet - see above
- Unrealistic sequencing - needs some humanization

STRUCTURE
- Abrupt ending - doesn't need much, but it currently just ends.

Thank you, Rozovian, for the mod review. I'll work on these issues as soon as I find the time.

Here's the revised version: http://soundcloud.com/willpisani/min...ming-dawn-comp

I believe I have addressed the panning, compression, and eq'ing issues; I also amplified it. I'm not sure how to humanize the strings beyond the humanize tool in Reaper. Any pointers?

I haven't changed/added to the ending, but I'm toying with the notion of ending the remix how it started. Thoughts?

I like the idea of integrating the beginning into the end because I really like it and the song is on the shorter side already. It does seem to end abruptly.

I've finally gotten around to tweaking the ending. Here's a link to the final version: http://soundcloud.com/willpisani/min...ming-dawn-4-21.
