    Critiques/comments wanted on my new piece

    I think this is my first finished piece since I got my GigaStudio setup. It\'s 99% GigaStudio.. had to plug my XP-80 in to get the winds. Thanks for listening!


    Genre: high fantasy role-playing game

    Libraries used:
    SAM Horns
    SAM Timpani
    Roland SR-JV80 flute, oboe
    Xsample harp

    I like the composition, it´s excellent for the stated genre. The beginning presents a nice and epic theme, which, from \"using samples\" point of view, could be a little more \"fatter\", but then again your the composer and it propably sounds just the way you intended. Overall, the whole piece doesn´t have \"too many ideas\" and it advances nicely. I liked it and am glad that I listened to it! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I like the music - it sounds exactly like a hero starting off on an epic journey. Nice entry of the horns. I too have sam horns - are those the sustain samples?

    I love the sudden tbones entry around :45 seconds into the piece. Immediately afterwards, very nice harp + oboe though I thought the oboe could use a bit more expression and vibrato at the sustained high note.

    Overall, I think the piece shows talent on your part and lots of interesting ideas that will no doubt be explored as the journey continues?

    Thanks! Actually those aren\'t trombones.. and the fact you should say that is a bit funny.. I just had a discussion with some people here how it\'s hard (for me anyway) to identify different brass instruments. But maybe it\'s not just me after all! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] (no offense, by the way)

    As far as the horns, it\'s the MW Sustain samples. I use that about 90% of the time. In warmer, more sensitive pieces, I like working the horns into the piece so they kind of just \"appear\" or arise out of some other instrument.

    Also, the oboe was a Roland sample.. I don\'t have a lot of flexibility with expression there, unfortunately.

    Thanks, both of you, for listening and commenting!
