Interesting take on this.

Obviously, the tin whistle needs a LOT of work to be a part of this track. There were many points where it was either off sync with the song, or stuck out like a sore thumb. Better mixing and a re-recording of the whistle may improve this.

Also, there were some points where it was clear the guitar was not natural. I don't have a fix for this, sorry.

Could anyone else comment on this? This sounds like a promising track!

Yeah, I'm only just learning to play the whistle, so I'm not all that great at it yet. Hopefully it'll sound better when I get a better take (And when I figure out how to mix it better. I have no idea how folk artists make it sound so good recorded :S).

As for the guitar, it's still just a soundfont. The final track will definitely include live guitar.

Thanks for listening!

What Mic did you record the tin whistle with?
A condenser or a dynamic. Condenser would be best for something like that.
I think live Tin Whistle will really compliment the track.

A Blue Snowball, so a condenser.

Hmmm. Nice. I've never used one.
I use a RODE NT2-A. It's bloody fantastic.
But yeah, the Tin Whistle has much potential.
Can't wait to see where this mix goes.

Been a while, but I've been doing some work on this.
These are some of the changes:
- New, much better whistle takes
- Addition of a Low Whistle
- Violins have been recorded
- Guitar part in verse section has been re-written. It is now much faster with some cool licks :D!
- There may be some other changes but I forget. Those are the big ones.

The mixing is really bad right now, a bunch of clipping as well as level and reverb problems. I'll try and clear that up when the guitars are recorded.

Remix

I'm a big fan of CC's OST so this interested me.

The arrangement is nice but there are a lot of issues with some sounds and instruments.

The acoustic guitar at the beggining could use some sustain, I think it would sound much better (maybe even use a piano soundfont instead of the acoustic guitar). Distortion guitar could play an octave higher in that section too.

In the next section, the flute/whistle thing sounds a bit out of tune sometimes. Also, the bass drum and the guitar get kind of lost in the mix. Is there a bass playing by the way? It's either non existant or very low volume, and you can't make Metal without a bass.
Also, the drums could use some work. The use of the hi-hat could be more constant.

I really like the introduction of the second theme. Only issues I can point out are with the volumes in a few parts, but I like the sound of this section.

3rd theme is nice, and the return to the second theme is also good.

Overall, a very nice remix with some volume and sound issues (especially the acoustic guitar).

This is rad. I'll record you some guitars if you provide me with said MIDI.

It'll sound a lot better when it's recorded for real. I know the sound quality isn't great and as I said the mixing is terrible, but all the guitars are just placeholders right now.

Ahah, yeah. Thanks for bringing that up, I forgot to mention it in my last post.
Whistles are frustrating because they are never in tune. Although I like the tone of my whistles they can be very irritating when trying to play with other instruments. I'm looking into getting a more expensive one which might help. If not I'm just going to have to practice controlling my breathing a LOT.

I just got an original Clarke Whistle yesterday and I love it! It's completely different from any other whistle I own and it's also the most in tune (it is a little quiet though).
I'll do another recording with it soon. I might double up the takes and use 2 different whistles to try and get a fuller sound. Or not. I'll play around with it.
