Thanks for the compliment on the orchestration, it’s certainly fun to orchestrate in this way. When you say direction do you mean the sections don’t flow well enough, or the harmony doesn’t develop in the right way, or is it the piano part at the end? (Which may not be piano eventually, but I can’t really continue with a 32 track limit on with an orchestra.)
I’ve boosted the choir volume a tiny bit since your original listen, as well as a few other minor things and quite a major difference in the mastering after spending all weekend reading the manual and fiddling with things. I see that the link has no downloads. When you download the file it’s the original 320kbps upload that you download, not the lower quality compressed one btw. I made this private link just for you mate. ;D
Yeah, I played WoW for several years myself. Although after the first play-through I have the music disabled like most people. But it is really great fantasy music. It’s EWQL SC yes. If I could load them twice and have one set just for sustain/legato notes/parts and one for staccato it’d make it so much easier. I do like the sound of it though, considering it’s from like 2007-2009, can’t remember exactly.
Thanks Michael, or Fox. Fox is a cooler name, like Fox Mulder. ;D Nice spot on the title, I wanted to try and develop the theme at the very beginning in different ways. The silent/building part will be where the piano is, although I’d like to have it with a full divisi string section, but because of the 32 track limit I had to remove the choice of having 2nd violins and violas playing legato, they play stacc/spicc/marcato throughout. So as I’ve said, I’m kind of stuck to continue since I can’t write the next part how I want to. Someday! The C7 Artist upgrade for £80 will give me 64 tracks, which will be fantastic but I can’t really spare any cash from food/bills.
The brass is actually just the cheaper hollywood brass ‘gold’ version too, so thanks. ;p Yeah, the piano does change the atmosphere too much, it’s mainly there as a reminder to myself for when I am able to go back to it with a bigger track limit. I have plans to have solo female vocal parts recorded in the build-up too.
And haha, you’ve listened to the wedding stuff? xD
