Another rough draft, not mastered yet. Part 1 od Epic series, part II is too big 4 Portal


Hmm...has a baroque feel

Back to the classical medieval video games. The beginning is nice...I like the soothing part in the middle more. I'm not sure about that horn during the quiet part where it does very quick stabs or staccatos. Besides that, when the horns reenter as a chorus...very nice. You managed to keep this classical song to well strictly classical instruments. I've heard alot of classicals on NG that have a blend of electronic stuff and classical instruments so I guess yours is like the 100% classical if that makes sense. I like the diversity going on. I see your a classical music maker. Not sure how you can fit part 2 in? I've seen some ppl on NG post 9 minute songs that had still decent clarity. For not mastering this song...well it sounds mastered to me. The panning of the drums, horns, and really no fuzz gives me impression you had to have done some mastering or were really lucky to pick all the right plugins on the first time to get clear sounds. Overall I'll give you a 5/5 and a 10. Go logic. :) Oh effort a 9 cause you said this is a rough draft. Bye for now

Hey man thanks. About the Mastering, it is mixed down pretty well but not mastered yet (the final volume is still too soft and i need a final EQ).
Part II is 7,700 K large and 7 minutes long, far too big for the portal. You can check it out on Mysapce http://www.myspace.com/chrisnewby420, it's simply called Epicanna Part II. I wish I could put it up here but what are you gonna do.
Thanks for the review and I will check out your stuff right now! LAter

Very, very strong.

sounds professional. it really does. wouldn't seem out of place in some sort of medieval video game/movie or something.
everything is perfectly coordinated, but the beginning and the end are standouts, as they should be. the middle is really good too, its just not nearly as energetic or exiting as the other parts--its more for suspense. the song really feels like it goes somewhere, and it is certainly very, very epic. the drums are very, very strong.
really, the only minor complaint i have with this track is that the main melody seems a bit common. as in, it gives the "have i heard this before?" feeling, even though i know i haven't. it just seems very similar to the melodies for alot of other songs like this. this might just be me, though.

this is a very, very good song, sounds professional, and is very refreshing compared to what i normally find on the audio portal.

Thanks for the review, and yes I was going for "Have I heard this before" sound. It's actually inspired from the Superman Theme Midway March. But it's not the same, Midway March is in a Major key dominantly, mine is a minor key.
Thanks again!
