Amazing! Just a few criticisms. The main leads could've used a louder delay like in the originals. The chorus synth for the Act 1 part was a little too loud. The bell/piano part at 0:33 could have been better executed. And there were some weird phasing effects most noted in the percussion on the second loop of each Act part. Now the good stuff, The violin was epic in the Act 1 section 0:43! I must know what you used for it. Also the percussion was fantastic. Wanna know what you made the percussion with as well, particularly the nice, realistic snare and hi hats. ;)
Thanks! The reason the leads have less delay and the pad is louder is that I wanted to create more of a difference between Act 1 and Act 2; the PC version of this song had less delay and a louder pad, so I kinda copied that style and kept the original for Act 2.
I'm not entirely sure what went on with the percussion; I think I messed up the automation somewhere (see what happens when I try to improve the percussion? It all goes wrong!). I didn't notice it until you pointed it out, and now it annoys me.
The violin and percussion are actually both done with stock instruments in Acoustica Mixcraft; I was messing about with automated EQ to try to get the snares sounding right (apparently I managed that), but the violin is just straight from the standard set. I like to make my own synths, but tend to stay with whatever's there for "real" instruments (partly because I'm poor).
