wow its like im in a fantasy land
Thanks for the comment and reviving an old piece.
Man, I gotta say, this is a great piece. I really love the bagpipe sounds - what did you use for that?? You've got a nice thing going with the guitar counterpoint from 1:01 to 1:44, but I feel like it's too far out in the mix. Sticks out just a little too much. Also, the cymbal swells are way too loud - instead of aiding with transitions they just distract you from the rest of the piece. A good cymbal swell is one that you don't notice, but that accents the rest of the music (in my opinion at least).
I really love the harmonies you have going on. Dabbling between a major-sounding feel in the beginning to a subtle switching between harmonic minor and raising the third with the dudok or whatever instrument that is at :41. It works well. The whole piece develops in a definitive way that casts a great, contemplative mood. Though, I don't think you needed that last note from the flute. Just letting it fade from 2:43 would have been fine.
Great job - I would love to hear more like this.
Thank you so much for enlightening me with your advises. I am still in the learning process of mixing/mastering [by the way I am a doctor so bear with me :) ]. Yes after extracting the wave file, I found out the cymbal was too high so I tried exporting it several time but the result was same. Then I decided to let it go. For the flute part, indeed I feel its exaggeration in the end.
I used Colossus for guitars, piano: Ethno World uilleann pipes from best service (its really amazing), EWSO for other sounds. Thanks again for your valuable input.
