I tried something a little different than usual on this track. Instead of using patches that contained all three instruments (Cello, Violin, Viola) I wrote three different tracks for each instrument. I think this works much better than using the combination pack for the realism of the instrument.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Have to agree with the previous reviewer, take a looks at your patches, tweak attack to give them a more continous sound! The strings could probably be made to sound more convincing with a little more reverb on them, as well.

The arrangement is pretty nice, though a bit on the repetitive side. Some of the chords are rather poorly orchestrated, and a lot of chord voicings are a bit lacking, at 01:22 for example, having two parts playing in sixths, and then suddenly ending up on a unison doesn't really work - all of a sudden an element the listener has gotten used to is abruptly removed, making that particular chord voicing sound incredibly weak.

I'd advice looking into some arrangement technique and theory, but you're absolutely on the right track!

Centrist responds:

By no means am I a professional. I've never done any schooling for music (yet), and the biggest thing I'm having trouble with now is transitions. I've been trying to listen to different types of music to really see how it's done, but I just can't grasp it too well in the classical style. D:

Thanks for your review!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I'm not a one hell of a musician but I can tell that the harmony of notes surely is "harmonious"; each note of each instrument compliments each other. I just noticed that the viola (I'm not sure if it's the viola or violin) sounds discontinuous, like the strings starts to have a louder volume with certain oscillation when prolonged then,when changing to a new note, the volume and the oscillation cuts off abruptly. Speaking of abrupt, the ending was too sudden; it would be better if the end part fades...

5 stars - 1/2 star (discontinuous strings) - 1/2 star (sudden ending) = 4 stars

Centrist responds:

Meh, can't be perfect when you can't play the instrument yourself. I suppose though I should have faded then end. :P But thank you for the review, really. It's nice to see something more than "good job".
