for just an ambient loop with bells, this is great. do yuo realize what this could build up to in a song?!?!?!?! it could become the most epic piece of music on NG!!!!!
Youve got the right idea with ambient, keeping it simple and it does have that sense of emptyness, I particularly like the gloomy feel bells at 0:30
but you need to do more to the sounds, there all on the same sort of level if you get me, theres no panning or wideness to it, it feels like im listening to a song, not like im IN the song which is what ambient should do.
Try dropping a stereo widener on the mixer for the lead, or a phase inverter (if you dont know how pm me ill be happy to help)
keep trying, and good luck!
