The music itself was good, and I liked how everything fit together. However, while I'm not sure if he commissioned it to be like this or not, I feel as though the rock came in a bit late, considering it's halfway through the song.
Thanks for the comment! Yes, he needed the rock part to come in when it did in order to fit the visuals. I think the edit that he used might have had a bit shorter intro, but it didn't affect the overall feel of the track that much.
Thanks again for commenting. I always appreciate the feedback! :D
I thought it was pretty awesome up until the rock part. Kind of ruined it. That's just my opinion though.
Thanks for the review. Yeah, I think some will find it distasteful, while some will love it. Sort of a hit or miss thing. But I was commissioned to kick it up several notches there, but I probably could have taken it in a different direction. Thank you for the review! :)
This is good songwriting IMO...I would say 1-don't be afraid of rocking out (let your inner rocking out shine!) 2-work on the mixing. I'd bus/ compress/ eq the drums in layers alot--keep doing this till you get them up front and sounding full--I use at least 3 tracks for my kick alone. They've got to rock in epic orchestral. Oh, and always mix the effect tracks of the drums with one plain, clean track in each area (this is basically what the concept behind NY or Parallel compression is).
Good ideas and mood, though, keep it up!
I appreciate the advice! I think the big issue here is that I actually used a drum sample set, so it's all just one track. Unfortunately, my computer doesn't have enough ram to run several instances of Battery in order to individually mess with each instrument. Perhaps I can still apply some of that though! Thanks! :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
