Song I did in my spare time.
Epic/Orchestral song for games and projects alike.

A bit overcompressed. Low end could be a bit richer (in terms of EQ)

Otherwise I really like the song itself, the melodies and it's grandiose motifs. Good stuff here!

Epic indeed. I like the choir and the percusion. Perhaps you can add tubular bells to make it even more epic. I think it fits.

I definitely enjoyed the pace throughout the track and it does feel pretty cinematic. I wouldn't have abused that swell-like frame drum so much it felt rather repetitive, especially at the beginning. It didn't become much of a problem later, thankfully due to the orchestral bombing in the climax and the general progression of the track.

I agree that the EQ needs some work and it sounds as if the instruments themselves are not given enough dynamics with the compression sounding a little bit flat. You could solve this by applying stereo enhancing on the master track, cut most of the reverb from the drums and boosting the low end a bit.

It's an otherwise enjoyable track and I love the film score vibe you provided

Wow, builds up really nicely! I can also definitly hear alot of Hans Zimmer in this, and that is never wrong! Great job!

This is really good, and you have great pace through this track. I think you're missing a lot of low end. I have a big sub below my feet and it's barely making a peep, so you possibly could go back and add some really low strings to warm and broaden your mix. Your drums are also missing any low end. You have this snare-ish whippy swipe at the beginning. It could be coupled with a braam sort of synth to fill that out.

Get to know some of your velocities on your instruments, if they dont have an expression ability on them, then use the volume to slowly bring in instruments and take them out. It will add a lot of realism to your instruments and composition. No crits on composition, i quite liked it. I felt you could have really teased me alot more though at the start. Thin cello section playing the spiccato theme you have, meaning when it comes to your big climax you hit us hard with the entire section.

Good stuff! Added you to my favs as you have loads of potential. Keep listening to those big names and trailer tracks!

Yeah, I kind of cut of the low end of the song during mastering. don't know why, I just did it :\

Thanks for constructive criticism, some of my never works are better mastered :)
