Recommended Posts

Here's a piece I've been looking to do an orchestral remix of for a while. Please enjoy! Feel free to give any feedback.

An orchestral arrangement with a piano solo in the first minute? Sweet. I'm envious of your brass (that's a rare statement, isn't it,) especially right on 1:01 to 1:13. I think a little dramatic emphasis could really give this some (dragon) punch. Take 1:14 to 1:16, one of the repeating parts of the song. The E flat and the F right at the end of the measure. Each time you play that segment, those notes are a little quiet. Each time I heard it, I wanted them to punch out, you know? Probably wouldn't be good for that emphasis each time, but just a suggestion. Anyways, this is good work with some real nice innovation.

Cheers mate, I appreciate the feedback! Those brass sounds are all default EastWest libraries with the Spaces plugin, I wanted to test out how fast I could put something together from scratch and get a decent sound. That Spaces plugin seems to go a long way.

Nice! The brass sounds great but the strings lag behind a bit. The attack time of the strings samples are probably too long so maybe you'll have to drag the MIDI notes a bit to the left Drums are alright but feels too small and tight for this arrangement. Maybe experiment with other drum kits or try some more reverb on the drums or something.

This. Particularly those last two notes Maybe really attack those notes the first time through the repeat and then dial it back once the high strings come in the second time through? Or vice versa? Just a thought. But yeah, this track is amazing. Really well done.
