A track I made, using ONLY instruments from East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra (EWQLSO). The idea was to put this legacy library through its paces, in hopes that it can compete with all the modern sample libraries that have been released since then.

Inspired by Joe Hisaishi and his work with Studio Ghibli.

Dammit Cadmus you're making me feel bad for not writing anything in months.

Simply amazing piece here. The flow of the parts, the fantastic use of the orchestra, it's just really, really good. The melody changes and the flow of the whole thing really does remind me of a Ghibli film.

One thing that does bother me is that the strings seem to be lacking in the high end. It doesn't sound bad, and when the rest of the orchestra comes in it sounds fine, but at the beginning it seemed like the strings were just muffled a bit.

Overall though, absolutely stellar work.

This is great! Very pro sound, rich orchestral arrangement and facets of emotion. I definitely get the Hisaishi feels!^^ Btw, noticed you're also from the sunshine state - not sure if it's in your area too, but some theaters are having a 20th anniversary showing of Princess Mononoke this week.

If he ever listened to this piece, Joe Hisaishi would be proud of it. Beautiful track. Grand and massive sound with moving melodies and harmonics. Stunning and solid piece. The middle part leading up to the climax is enormous. So adventurous and heroic. The change of tempo and transitioning from urgency to calm, then back to epicness. Outstanding. Damn, I run out of words to describe this piece. Glad to see you back. Happy New Year.

I like the frantic strings and adventuresome tone of the piece. The piece has a lot of shape and phrasing which, in turn, gives the piece a distinct emotional appeal. You play with quite a few different moods here and master them all. Excellent sound design and mixing/mastering. The production quality is excellent, and all the instruments are super clear. You've built a warm, lush, and full texture. I feel like I'm not listening to the music so much as the music is giving me a massage. The cinematic vibe is great. The piece might not have as much structural coherence as I'm used to, but other than that I simply have nothing to complain about. The drama and emotion are superb. This track is well-structured, smooth-flowing, and well-mastered, with beautiful melodies and a rich atmosphere. Fantastic effort. By all means, keep it up, Sir Cadmus! ^_^

This is absolutely wonderful!
Incidentally, I just watched a couple of Miyazaki movies a few days ago, so I can definitely hear the resemblance! I think your dynamic, and harmonic work here is absolutely fantastic. You managed to make the sound fairly iconic too, which I think many modern day movies are kind of lacking, a bit.
You're also able to show that EWQLSO is capable of all this, which is awesome!

Fantastic job :)
