Ever since I started using some of the professional music libraries & VIs earlier this year, I've been making recordings of some of my favorite music for practice. I did Beethoven's 6th Symphony and a few others. My latest "practice" recording was of the theme to Apollo 13 by James Horner. I'd be interested in any comments on the recording/mixing.
I'm almost ready to start working on some original work now that I'm used to using the VIs, recording, and mixing
Thank you all for your replies and emails! Your suggestions have been very helpful. I went back and made a new master changing a few things. First... yes, I did forget the cymbals. Actually they were there but recorded as snare hits... oops hehe. I rebalanced a little and changed to oboe to the VSL Kontakt Orchestra oboe (sounds much better imho). Thanks again, your comments are very helpful. I just wish I had as good an ear as some of you.
