Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!
For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 184 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!
Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!
You make some really beautiful music man.That cello is sublime. So much detail to the expression of all your solo instruments. The one thing i would improve is the way that crash fits in the mix. Everything else is flawless.
You have a new fan
Thanks a lot !
Actually, now that some time has passed, there are some elements in the mix that I'd like to change a little bit. I learned some new mixing techniques (M/S mixing/mastering) that could have been useful for this track.
I wasn't really thinking about changing the volume & EQ of the cymbals, but this is mainly because it probably wouldn't do any good if I try to do something about it. My current headphones have little to no highs, meaning I can't control it precisely.
I had the same issue with Dark Nebulae, for which I had to send a "work in progress" version to a friend to know if the cymbals (which had to be in front of the mix, but not too much) were loud enough. On the first version I sent him, while it sounded all good to me, he actually told me he couldn't hear the orchestra because of the cymbals. xD
I might invest in new headphones soon, but since I also have to upgrade my computer (I reached its limits many times lately), I'll have to wait for it.
Thanks again for your review !
