A third draft render of a little song that I actually built in a few hours to try out basic song structure (ABABCB). Only pseudo-realistic sounding classical instruments (see below), I was going for a symphonic sound. To my ears, it sounds as if it belongs in a movie or a game. Purely using Renoise for Arrangement (no effects except for reverb and a little overall compression), using the free Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra with the free sfz for playing the SoundFonts.

I might polish this, maybe even make some cool remixes of it :-) but there it is for now.

Now with oboe, less mechanic piano and a few other tweaks.

UPDATE: Changed the internal structure to use Renoise track groups, and made a few improvements on the way. Also added a bit of reverb using the free SIR1 and a "Vienna Hall" teamplate from Samplicity's free Bricasti M7 Impulse Response Collection. Normalizing and light compression (and encoding, of course) using the free Audacity.


Gotta love those deep piano chords. It would sound loads better if you got less synthy brass and strings. Although I still like the whole atmosphere of the song. Very regal sounding to me. Well done.

Thanks for the feedback! As mentioned in the description, I used the free Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra for all the instruments, so I left myself little choice there :-)

Any recommendations on free, more realistic sounding brass & string collections I could use for those instead?
