Nice introduction, a bit slow but prepares you for the next epics. If I close my eyes listening this starting from the minute 0:45, I can see the African savanna from the air in takes of different stampedes of animals. This song is full of nature, I like that :D . Perfect for the intro of a wildlife documentary but also for any celtic movie trailer. R2R n.n

Samples are a bit raw and I think pushing 0. Dial them back. A piece like this should be dynamic, with a fairly wide range between soft and quiet parts. The actual samples used sound high quality, and the composition is good, has lots of feeling, sounds like it could be quantum leap even, but you need to spend a lot more time setting up your mixing.

Wet some of those instruments so they sound like they are in a real hall, dial back the volume on most of them, work on the levels of instruments to get them exact.

Look at your DB meter and make sure nothing is pushing 0db, and don't be afraid to have the track be a little bit quiet, as classical sounding tracks often are, and it's always better to have your track a little bit too quiet than pushing 0 in the mix, because you can always turn up the master or add a touch of modest compression, but if you go over you'll get distortion.


NicholasCabraja responds:

I limited the FUCK out of this track. This isn't a classical track you hear on the radio. This is a hybrid/trailer type. Nothing is peaking dude not even the master. It's just the RMS value is between 10-8db. I'll be playing with the reverb in other tracks since it seems like they aren't wet enough. I'm using QL Spaces and they are all in a hall with different pre delays and mixing of wet and dry signals.

Thanks for the tips.

This song is very deep and emotional; I love the worldly style the song presents.
I don't think the song lacks too much. I believe it sounds great.

This is neat. don't have a lot of experience with this genre

mixing advice: make the strings wider, with more reverb. Could use some more brassier tones with an attack delay before the note hits.

don't be afraid to add some cymbal fills too.

add a bit more variation to the melody. at least a 16 bar break or something.

the ending felt off to me.

gg


NicholasCabraja responds:

Ya man thanks

I'm having huge trouble getting things wide. And I'm afraid adding too much reverb will wash the sound. I even pan my instruments haha.
I'll have to experiment with the attack delay sounds neat.
Didn't add variation because I was trying for an evolving mix. But looks like it wasn't as interesting. Or didn't add any gestures. ;)

Glad to hear something new from you!
This is quite lovely ^ ^

The percussion works really well for this track :D
The melodies are nice, and the arrangement is really cool. Reminds me of some asian styled orchestral tracks, but considering the name, I'm sure that's intentional. Really great job :)


NicholasCabraja responds:

Thanks Lucid!
Ya it's been awhile. But I check your stuff out whenever I can. Your melodic piano playing always inspires me.
Your words are too kind. :D
