I really like this, especially where it kicks in 0:54 onwards. It has an uplifting feel to it, and the rhythms are peaceful but engaging. Really lovely melodic ideas in here, such as the one at 01:20 (don't agree with poster saying it sounds "foreign" at all!). There are points here where the track really comes together and feels solid, such as at 2:28, but at other points it sounds a little "artificial," which is always an issue when using synthesised orchestral instruments, e.g at 0:37. The beginning also doesn't have quite the same cohesiveness as the song does after you bring in the more obviously electronic instruments. I think generally doing some research on how to get the best sound out of synthesised orchestral instruments, technique-wise as well as in terms of patches, will really help if you decide to take this kind of experimentation further. Really good work!
yes, I agree with those 'artificial' sounding orchestral instruments as well, I didn't research much on composing synthesized orchestral stuff, I'll do more research on it while composing tracks from now on.
Thanks a lot for everything you mentioned here. Glad you like it. :)
I like the combination of these genres, but some of your sounds are preventing me from enjoying the song.. I could say I like the intro, break and outro but not the drops :D
0:55 that melody sounds a bit cheap to me, I feel like you could put some more effort into it
1:20 the lead sounds really "foreign", compared to the rest of the sounds, I would switch it for something diffent
3:00 same case, these screech things dont fit much
I like drums themselves but the loudness should be a bit diffent, turn down that hihats a bit and emphesize the snare, kick is OKish
But experimenting, that's the spirit, you should try new things in your DAW everyday, even if they appear bad and you delete them right after.. sooner or later you create something good
Thanks a lot for review! I thought of adding some harsh elements because that's drum n bass xD
The drums thing, I understood that those were badly mixed while mastering, but I thought of letting it go.
This track sounds very epic, and I like the orchestral elements in this song. However there are things to improve. First off, the snares at the drum n bass breakdown. They don't hit very hard, and there is barely any noise tail. Try using HARD hitting snares with a moderate noise tail. Second off, you might want to add a chord, or if there is one, try making it be heard. Orchestral tracks normally have a choir that makes it epic. I liked how you mixed an electronic lead into the breakdown, as i really like orchestral music blended in with electronic music. End of review.
umm, that snare stuff, I don't actually know how liquid DnB has snares but I just followed what my mind said in this track. I know that orchestral tracks have mostly female choirs but tbh, I forgot to add it xD
Thanks for the review.
Sounds Great Man! What did you use for The pads And Orchestra? Those really sound great!
Sonatina symphonic orchestra for all orchestral instruments, and those pads come from nexus.
Nice and chilled Classical and dnb is the bomb.
