Wow, that was fast! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks! Actually, believe it or not, I\'ve never heard the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack. Maybe I\'ll give it a listen, I\'ve heard it\'s good.
I guess I\'ll add on to it. I\'m not sure if I want to make it that huge, though. Perhaps when I get my keyboard in the scene again, I will. I\'ve got around 3 1/2 hours into it so far and it\'s getting tedious. Right now I want to throw the song out of the window! AAAH! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Not bad. What samples are these? They sound pretty good. A little too much reverb for my taste. This is a good filmic kind of scene sounding piece, but to me there\'s no real direction. The melody just meanders for my taste, but that may be your intention for whatever context this piece might be in. All in all pretty good start.
Actually, most of my samples are free soundfonts found on the internet. I found a sample cd on ebay full of orchestral wavs, so I made soundfonts out of them, and they sound really good. Some of the strings you hear in this song came from this cd.
greatzed, you have some nice ideas which you don\'t explore much. I would like see more variations and some directions in the harmony progression. It\'s often useful to draw up a map of the route you want to go. It can be as simple as this: I (C-major key) -> V (G-major key) -> iV (F-major key) -> I (C-major key)
Of course you do modulation where \"->\" are, so when you have done that you have something to aim for. It\'s also a great tool to see quickly if you might want to reuse some idea somewhere else.
