Edit: I’ve resigned to just using Chinese instruments as the main melodic focus for now to put this project out of mind until a later date when a live recording is possible. I can’t claim to be an expert with samples, but if Chris or anyone else wishes to hear individual sections I’m happy to upload those as private links upon request. Key signature was also transposed up E minor up from C minor for the vocalists range so i kept it in E minor for the purposes of coming back to it with her at a later date.
Original Post: As usual critique about the mix/mastering (and orchestration) are very welcome. It’s intended to have a female vocal over the majority of it, so 1:20 will sound a little empty as the vocal melody doesn’t follow the high violins as it would in the main sections. Not sure when that’ll be though.
Original link removed.
Libraries used are; EWQL hollywood strings, brass, symphonic choirs, stormdrum 2 and the piano is Alicia’s Keys unfortunately, not very fitting to the style. Everything at one mic position only, main mics.
