had some emotional depth
I liked the way you carried the mood throughout the loop. I appreciate you mentioning about your software troubles. Likewise I want to upgrade but I really don't have the time or money to invest in better stuff.
The lower pitch string melodic line from 32 to 47 has something weird sounding about it to me. I think the entire piece would sound better with a little reverb and maybe a little echo on the xylophone type sound... this piece should sound like it's being played in a cathedral or cavern or something, not a small room. Also if you can look up some stuff about how to make your vocal and orchestral synths sound more realistic that would help you alot, at the moment they sound like somebody standing at a keyboard pressing keys, real strings and voices fade in and out on each note, wobble in pitch sometimes and consecutive notes never sound exactly the same.
