I think this is what Benyue was trying to say...
Instead of inputting the notes with a mouse, try using a midi keyboard to input the notes to add more realism and variety between the articulations. The only time I noticed this being an issue was in the string bass part (staccato samples around 3:00-3:30). I'm not sure which program you use, but if possible try adjusting the articulations so some of the notes are more audible than others.
Personally, I use a keyboard to input the notes so I can write music faster, but I almost always apply quantization to correct rhythmic flaws in my own playing. Next, I adjust the articulation levels with a mouse so essentially it doesn't matter if you use a keyboard or not.
I really enjoyed this piece and the mood it presents. While there are some small fixes that could help enhance the realism of this piece, I think your works sound quite professional overall. Lastly, I think it's important as an artist to be receptive and respectful of both positive and negative feedback, no matter how nasty the negative feedback may sound ;)
With that being said, I didn't like Benue's choice of words in his review. A good review should include a couple compliments with some constructive criticism in the middle.
I have no problem with negative feedback, but i do have a problem with pompous assholes. thank you for the review and the attempt to clear up benyue, 'tis much appreciated.
... This is amazing! I love the atmosohere you have created with the rain. When it started to pick up at around 4 minutes, my head almost exploded. I also love the fact that you incorporated a fantasy feeling to it. Not a whole lot of those out there and it picks me up and puts me in a good mood. And I dont know what that dude is talking about down there. I was convinced a real orchestra was playing. The way I see it, if music moves me to the point where I start feeling an emotion that I wasnt feeling before listening to it, its damn good music. You passed that with flying colors so I just want to encourage you make more, regardless of the nay-sayers.
I really love the choirs in this, what program/Vsti did you use?
I'm writing this here so you can get higher mark on this submission lol. I love the amount of initiative and dedication you are putting towards this collab, but this is a little too long. If it was approx. 2.5 mins, and with less major key stuff, it would be the absolute perfect song I'm looking for. Also, I have no instruments available where I am, so I might as well ask you, what key is it in? I'm looking for either C, C#, or D minor, depending on what the piano players prefer to play to. But this is excellent, cheers from Canada.
Excellent. I'm open to any key. Just ask them which they prefer, and one of the reasons it's so long is so that you can pick or choose which part you like best.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
