Princess Zelda (Ocarina of Time Cover)

I made this cover of Eric Buchholz' composition from the album, "Hero of Time (Music from 'The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time'). I love that album. It got me really interested in composing orchestral and cinematic music. So I decided to cover this song from the album. I think it turned out pretty well.

I used EXS24 sampler in Logic Pro X and listened to the original song probably several hundred times to produce this cover.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own the rights to the song, "Princess Zelda," which was composed by Eric Buchholz.

This is very well done! Your mixing is pretty good too! I really like the way you did the piano around the 02:47 and every instrument you have chosen is very spot on! I cant really see anything I would change. the strings that come in at the 2min mark are a nice touch too!

Hm maybe I should switch to Logic I really like the way the strings sound. :)

Good work!

Thanks! I was trying to get it to sound as close to the original as possible, so I didn't really "choose" the instruments so much. The same goes for the piano.

I used a lot of automation on the instruments' volume levels, particularly the strings, to make them sound more dynamic, and added reverb. Logic comes with an awesome convolution reverb plug-in called "Space Designer" which is amazing.

Thanks again for the review! :)

in a world flooding with FL Studio people, it's nice to see that people can make such good stuff with Logic Pro X.
(by the way, I use Logic Pro X also)
this is awesome!!!

FateModified responds:

Thanks! Yeah, Logic Pro X is pretty awesome, especially since it is only $200 and comes with so much awesome stuff. I'm saving up to get Native Instruments Komplete 11 Ultimate to use in Logic Pro X. Then I hope to expand my sample library collection even more with solo instruments such as cello and violin to be used in Kontakt (part of Komplete). That would be so cool...

Thanks for the review! :)
