Wow...those sounds are really hard to listen to! I really thought the packaged Sibelius sounds were better than that. Which is a shame, because you have some really good ideas! I gave it 3 stars as a balance between the two: for ideas and arrangement, I'd give you 4 or 5 stars.
Keep writing...you'll just keep getting your skills up, and once you get some sounds worth your time, you'll be able to really knock it out.
Hey, thanks for the review. Thank you for being able to see past the terrible sounds. I am going to purchase EastWest's Symphonic Orchestra soon which will be nice and I will do a re-upload of the piece then :)
-The build up until 01:07 is awesome. I love the horns and the contrasting strings, they really add to the overall feeling or atmosphere of the song.
- After 01:07 and the drum "solo" piece are great. I didn't like the cymbals used so much. Perhaps because of the sample used?
- The final part, where everything comes together, is quite inspirational. Once again, the horns are my favourite.
Overall, great job on this.
Why thank you!
I was very disappointed in the sample for the cymbals, it was supposed to be a cymbal roll with a crescendo. Didn't quite turn out right. Until I get new samples (and money for that matter) I'll just have use them. I guess it's better then midi though :P.
I am glad you liked the final part, was my favourite bit as well. I am glad you liked the horns, will be using them more :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
