This was a test of sorts to see how many styles and instrumentations I could fit into one song, and the end result has gotten good feedback, so I decided to put it here. Reviews are always appreciated, as usual.

Okay... Now the developement of the track was unexpected after this beginning. It starts indeed like some bard theme in a tavern of some vintage jrpg or something. The step by step it moves over to a more trance like track and back mixing both genres.... That´s interesting and I like it although it feels a bit unconsistent some times. You have some nice catchy melodies and mix-wise it sounds very clear to me. I think the end is a bit sudden, which is a pity after the long developement... What you definitely should do is to work on your humanization (yes I always say that). Every tone you play seems to be 100% quantized and played with the same velocity. Vary velocities and emphsize the main hits in a bar (The 1 and the quarters with a bit more velocity, semiquavers a bit less except you want strong syncopation). Especially vary thevelocities on the drums around 1 min. And don´t quantize everything by 100%. In the pure electric parts this works but if you hear a "real" instrument playing that just sounds very unnatural and robotic... The drop around 1:30 feels a bit long. Either try to build it up a bit more or make it slightly shorter. All these are just small suggestion to make this already cool track a little bit more cool ;)

Alright thanks! I've never tried un-quantizing or altering velocities like you've described (I don't have any MIDI instruments, I do everything inside the piano roll). I have to try that sometime. Thanks for the advice!
