  1. The movie is awesome! May the Force guide you away from spoilers XD I liked your tribute. It evokes a cool sense of grandeur. I'm just not much fan of the brass samples, but the choir ones worked very well Thanks for sharing it
  2. Hey folks, I'm kinda new to this kind of stuff. After I saw this post I've searched the Wikipedia article about SoundFont, but even reading it I feel to not be able to grasp it yet. So... what's a SoundFont?

I have a lot to comment, but I'll focus on the "to improve on" because that's my reviewing style, but don't think that because I will speak little of the qualities I didn't liked what you did. I do like, and a lot ^^ Overall, if you do intend to label this ReMix as rock/metal, I feel the mix to lack the punch and the groove of these styles.
