The track is fabulous! Your harmony and tempo are brilliant! However the strad, sounds kinda weird, I'm afraid...
It does sound like it has some weird reverb. Somehow it's not working for me, peronsally... If I may aks what did you apply?
Then it sounds very much at the same volume. You have the instrument a bit longer than me and definately have toyed around much more, but still it seems that the volumae stays the same (velocity issue?_
There is an almost (or total) lack of portamento. I know that strad can play portamento, and it would make it much more realistc to add this.
The track itself is marvelous. Wondering if the harmony is your own, or some kind of jazz trick, as it sounds really wonderful! Also the section strings sound wonderful as well.
I really hope that I didn't discourage you, cause this is a really nice piece. (I'm sure that I would do much much worst if I had tried strad myeslf... )
Sounds pretty good to me. Perhaps the person above was confused by the tight cluster chords you wrote for the background group. It gives the impression of enormous amounts of reverb when that isn't the case at all.
Keeping the background instruments out of the same range that the solo instrument occupies, as much as possible, can cause the entire composition to be more clear.
Nice Tune and beautiful Harmony. !!!
I like the restraint shown with both vibrato and portamento.
One suggestion for the background string parts, would be to find the odd note that is common to 2 succeeding chords and overlap it.
This could reduce the feeling of chord-----chord-----another chord-------etc, etc,.
It would be nice to have the odd note that wasnt always pumping, as the swells start to get a bit predictable after a while.
I reaaly like your writing approach and hope to hear some more of your music.
