I am judging for the mac 07 contest, and I have to say, the most difficult part of it to me, is choosing which of your songs not to include. This is only because out of 10 song, i think it would be slightly unfair if 5 of them were yours.
Your songs are all so epic and amazing, this is truely a difficult decision, I would have to say that this is my favourite though.
Also, I am sorry I have never reveiwed your songs, although I have listened to all of them, and voted on most. It is just, I really am not a classical music person, so I have no idea what to say about these, except that they are epic. And the samples are awesome, I wish I had something better than FL basics.
OK. i am actually going to try and reveiw this song.
Amazingly mixed. The drums being based mainly on the sticks was a vert nice concept, I think that is what makes this song my favourite, as well as the snare, with its abnormally flat sound, yet almost sounds as if it were played with a tom as well.
In some parts I can actually just hear the tom, so i beleive that is what you did.
The violins sound awesome, well, it sounds like there is more than one, did you use a sample of like, many violins together?
Also, I like the use of the bell, as well as the brass, as the first hit of each bar, gave it much more of an effect, more oomph to each bar, well played.
The loop is awesome too, sometimes i notice it, but more often I dont, another good job on your behalf.
I wish I had your talent.
And good luck with the competition, even if you don't need it.
