"why can't I hold all these soundsXD"
Set out to see how many instances of orchestral instruments/percussion I could push my pc/cpu to play simutaneously.
The answer was more than I need, but less than I want.

If the mixing is jank and stuff it's because, ya know, it's unstable as all hell from being so cpu heavy, I'm not going back to edit it, not without a ton of bouncing, but this was just a test I thought was decent enough to share with you guys. Orchestral music isn't my forte, but it's something I want to practice, and it's honestly getting better.

All comments are appreciated.

I think the orchestra has a nice quality, but needs some more things like flutes for example or some sort of woodwind to play some soft melodies along with it. The percussion unfortunately doesn't quite fit, though I like what you went for. I think what would really work is some drums if you could find them, that have a "timpani-like" sound. I know that there were samples of similar styled drums back in ol FL7, that I used for my track Requiem probably in 08 or 09. Not saying I did a good job with them, since I didn't even know how to change synths other than X and Y controls without ruining them(lol). The cymbals kind of have the "dance" sound to them, so along with the snare, they don't quite belong, but I think with a little soul-searching for the right sounds, and a bit more to bring this together in a baroque style, you could make this really great. :)

I have to totally agree with you, maybe I should have searched for a more natural sounding snare, I'm sure I have one somewhere, I have battery, (it has a TON of drum sounds, but the way it's set up makes some hard to find, and time consuming) ...it's a hard sound bank to sift though.
If I rework this song I'm definitely gonna look at your critique and try some of your suggestions and see how it sounds.

Orchestra is one of the things I"v ealways wanted to do well, but back when, could not, but believe me, this is better than my very early attempts. XD I should probably be pickier with all my sounds to be honest.
Thanks for the in depth critiques, much appreciated.
