THIS IS AMAZING. I just can't explain how cheerful this is for me. Could i use this as a intro PLEASE
A well-thought and executed piece. BRAVO! 10/10, 5/5
(This review is merely my opinion and in any case I hope not to offend. I do not claim to have a better opinion than anyone else)
There is something innocently imp-ish about the arrangement. Something that I would expect to hear in a hidden level in Heroes III or something.
There is something missing though...
I think that when you enter the spiccato part around 1:28 it distorts to much in the low frequency interplay. I'm sure that if you were to transpose the upper half of the chord (I reckon these, that I mention, are two notes played simultaneously by the cello-thingy) to about the seventh transpose. This is similar to the universally known C and G gap (I sincerely hope you're using a piano or a piano-ish midi controller to record these things in the hope you understand).
Another thing. Have you tried putting a slight, slight reverb on the drums? This might help overcome their dryness.
One thought of curiousity: What are you using to create this piece? I would like to know.
Thanks for the review! It's always good to have other's opinions.
There are two double basses playing at the same time at the part starting 1:28. I could try to move the lower part of it up (not good with technical terms :( ) and see if it sounded any better.
I usually don't think about adding any reverb or special effects, I actually take them off the instruments because when selecting them, they come default.
I use Mixcraft 4 to create all my pieces. It has a piano roll midi controller. (I also have some really old casio keyboard and a roland cakewalk usb cable, but I gave up, 'cause I found there was a slight delay.)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
