    Newest Song..

    Nobody gives you feedback in that dang EastWest forum so im posting this here

    Its sort of half GPO/ half Symphonic orchestra (love the GPO Flutes ! ). Its a sad theme for a desolate city of ruins, and its for an RPG. It took about an hour to make this so its not fully polished.

    Enjoy!

    (Oh and heres a link to another song i never got feedback to. It doesnt use much GPO though..)

    First, very nice mood. Definitely tells a story.

    A couple of minor things to think about:

    1. Give the instruments some reverb if you can. Helps to give them space and ambience and all that.
    2. Use your pedal (or whatever controller you have) to introduce legato to the string notes. They sound sort of synthetic (and I'm guilty of this too, so don't think I'm being harsh!!) because I can hear the attacks hit on every note. If you have a pedal for your keyboard, use this in the manner that when you push down and hold the pedal, the notes turn legato so they sound more fluid.

    Horns were excellent! Very nice chord structures.

    Other than that, you are well on your way and once again, the mood of the piece DEFINITELY fits what you are after in terms of the scene taking place.

    There is a reverb, but not alot in this piece. I may add more but i was aiming for an up front sound

    And those violin section attacks....well, EWQLSO doesnt have a legato mode. The pedal makes the samples sustain forever (it creates a total mess ). The newestupdate has legato but i cant find my NI password yo update. Ill probably just replace the Violins with a GPO patch, or build an ensemble.

    Listened to this a little bit ago. I think you did very well. Nice ambient piece. I clearly imagine what you're aiming at (IMO.) I did notice the detached sound of the strings, but it wasn't obtrusive really. Maybe layering GPO with EW will give it a fuller sound and with GPO's legato you'll get a more connected string line. Just an idea.
