Hello all. I\'ve never posted anything hear because most of what I do is very pop oriented. Even though I was a comp. major in College I never get to use it and hardly ever get to write any new music. Well a few weeks ago I got a chance to write some new stuff. It\'s some underscores for a Voice Over project. Very low budget but I wanted a change of pace so I agreed to do it. Unfortunately I had to mix it all myself, which I don\'t do! Usually I get a good mix budget and hire a REAL mixer. But I did my best.
They were pretty specific with what they wanted so I wrote very specific music. I\'m posting 2 pieces. One is a very slow minor piece that changes to major half way through. Due to time constraints of the VO I didn\'t have room to develop any of the themes really. The other is on the lighter side. They really liked some Dave Grusin cuts, so you may hear alot of Grusin influences. They\'re different then what is usually posted on this forum but I thought it\'s worth a try.
I know the mixes are a little empty around 200-350hz. I took out too much. I know there\'s some other mix problems. But I\'d love some suggestions for maybe improving the orchestra a bit. This is the first project I\'ve actually done real string parts and used Garritan for. I\'m pretty pleased with most of the sounds, although still not thrilled with the Vln. I think I can do better. Anyway, go ahead, tear me up..... I\'m prepared !
