As I said in a news post before, this only uses 4 soundbanks. There are even no automations. Just a track I wrote in one day. F-moll, 200 BPM, sad atmosphere.

Really cool!

The only complaint I guess would be that it isn't really classical- sounding. It is classical, but it sounds like it could easily have become more electronic and it would have been cool.

Erso responds:

Thanks, all of my older tracks are actually like this :D Being something in-between electronic and classical.

Those ornaments are very baroque-esque. You really seem to like them don't you?
Sounds nice though. I feel like this would work well in a dramatic scene.

In terms of execution, I'd say it sounds a bit too static, some slight tempo changes might make it sound more natural (usually it speeds up and slows down, almost as if the music is "breathing") and give it even more emotional impact.

I'd also watch the levels before they hit the limiter (or compressor, idk) so the music gets more headroom and sounds less squashed.

This is just my constructive criticism, but overall I liked it a lot. Great use of counterpoint (I had to spend the entirety of last school-year learning about counterpoint .. so I recognised it right away, haha. You're better at it than I am.)

A melody which you remember. Nice Job!

Almost great! Only two things: the electronic violins are too difficult to make'em to sound as well as real violins, so i recommend you don't to use'em a lot, not even in a melody, i know because i had to use them... so you may better use... windwood sections? kinda. the other thing is... better don't say how much time you spent doing a song, i would seem you didn't made effort.
Great concept and song btw ^^.

This is nice. And probably a good music to chill out. :D
