Comes very well over here .... I will start for my future videos! More please!
Fantastic! I love it! All of the instruments sound like a live sample, IE no transition issues with the strings, as you find most of the time.
The voice obviously has transition issues, but voices are nearly impossible. Actually I've kinda' grown to like the 'sampled' sounding voices like this one. I'm curious where this one is from. Is it one of the Native Instruments?
Thanks. :) Well, as for the strings I'm using several different libraries, none of which is state-of-the art, but if you use decent reverb settings, play the instruments well and spend a little time on on manually polishing the legato (instead of simply quantizing the recording) you can achieve this even with rather simple libraries.
As for the vocals: it's the soprano soloist from East West's Symphonic Choirs. Actually I believe that by experimenting a bit with some of its features I could've gotten much better transitions but I'm still rather satisfied with how it turned out - one of the main problems is that the panning isn't the same for each note so you'd have to fix this manually. But I have to say that when actually using the library's choirs there's almost no problem with the transitions. Also I believe that the soloists from Voices of Passion are much more advanced, considering the authenticity but this one is pretty much exactly what I wanted in this piece.
This is pretty good and very inspiring. Seems like a you a lot of work into it. Though you are right, it's nowhere near long enough, I still like it.
ps: Check out some of my stuff sometime :D
Thanks. If the general feedback's gonna be good I'll probably continue working on it (your review is a good start :)). The sad thing is that the contest's deadline is followed closely by a much more important deadline - it this hadn't been the case I'd have spent more time working on this thing. :/
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
