So my friend gave me the task of creating a song to go into the background of a starter village for a game. At first it started off rather simple, taking inspiration from the sounds of "Besaid Island" in Final Fantasy X.
From there, I was then encouraged to carry on the track and tell a story with it.
This is my progress so far. This is the first time I've used an Orchestral VST, created anything below 125bpm and I'm really looking for some honest criticism before I continue on to have any more fun with this... that.. and I'm stumped for musical inspiration atm xD

FIrst off, overall the track sounds good and is interesting to listen to, good job! Something that I find is one of the most useful tools when sequencing/programming is the ability to control velocity. From what I can hear most of the instruments are just being played at one velocity which makes them sound a bit mechanical, so I'd just maybe go through and change some velocities around- eg. higher velocity for accented notes, and lower velocity for non accented notes.

The string vst has a really nice sound to it, and I can hear that there are accents in there and you're aware of that kind of thing. Anyway hope that advice helps at all. Once again good job!

Thankyou for the review!
I'm still quite unsure as to what velocity even does to a sound at the moment. I'm in those early stages of learning what every little term means, so I'll definately research into it and tweak those sounds to make em sound more alive.
I'm glad you thought that it atleast sounded interesting, I was going for more of an epic feel towards the end though, so maybe the velocity will help!

Thanks again!
