    C in 4

    Another dawdle - working on levels this time.

    A second try with some suggested changes in tempo and reverb.

    Hi Tom.
    I like the tunes and levels and mix are ok.
    To me, a little bit of "tail" around the sound will enhance the overall quality of this fine piece of music.
    Best Regards

    Thank you for the input – greatly appreciated! You mentioned a “tail.” Are you referring to reverb?

    Yes, but also a little "slowing down" both in tempo and sound at the end of some phrases - here a good touch of reverb can help a lot.

    Thank you kindly. I’ll get on that and see what I can do.

    I would suggest adding more re-verb... listen to a live orchestral work in a concert hall forum; notice
    how much "tail" each instrument section has; listen for pauses in the work that may reveal the natural amount of reverberation in that context... this may give you a sense of when the right amount of re-verb has been reached.

    Also, try to use string samples that have at least 3 to 4 natural velocity levels. This will greatly improve the realism of the dynamic changes.

    I listened to the second version you posted, Tom - It certainly is a very pleasant piece of music.

    I would have guessed there was no reverb used though - You definitely need to turn it up much higher than this, as SecondSelf pointed out.

    The jumps in dynamics aren't really working, maybe because they're such drastic jumps. I know it's difficult doing all that kind of work with inserted commands instead of being able to record volume data - just passing on that it needs smoothing out.

    Your volume is certainly much better this time.

    Keep on going, Tom!
