Nice composition Sovereign [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] The only thing that I would comment on is adding maybe some more expression to the strings, but the writing is great and for your second attempt, very nice job!
Btw, if want a useful tip, some might not agree with me on this here, but here it is anyway for expression. If your wave editor has an envelope control for volume, try using it for adding more swells in volume and dips. This way you don\'t have to go back and redo the strings expression again in your sequencer. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I record all of my string sections seperately when I capture to audio, so that way I can add more volume control to each section if it needs it. Obviously if you captured to audio the entire song, you cant do this, but if you do it in sections, it can help.
I was actually forced to render each section (reed, brass, etc.) to wav individually and mix \'em together later on, because my system was literally crushed under the weight of all the samples and I experienced lots of missing notes, etc. Guess 512 mb is not enough. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
