Good work on this. :)

You did a good job at orchestrating the strings part, but you could have added more percussion to this- anvil, a bass drum at fortississimo to make it pop, crash cymbal at the start of each pattern, etc. In addition, you could have easily lengthened the piece with a simple B melody following the great beat you had going! Until you get a new computer and/or get your setup fixed up, best of luck on your other projects.

The piece is overall rather quiet. Consider looking at the mixing/mastering styles of Cinematic works as a basis for that "pop" that is there in action scores.

Keep compos(ed/ing)!

believe it or not I mixed this on some horrible skull candy "inked" ear-bud headphones
just got some MDR-7506 cans and getting some sound monitors so i can finish this properly

thanks for the encouragement :D

Dude, this is good! It sounds like you ripped it right out of a movie. :P What software do you use?

ALECXACE responds:

FL studio
EWQL gold
Symphobia 1&2
stormdrum/true strike

listening to this music just makes me want to grab a sword and run through the nearest forest at high speeds to go save middle earth from some big *** monsters. I Look forward to hearing it when its finished. :D
