Hi to the Forum
I enjoy AudioJungle a lot. I know I have a long way to go to improve my work. Could I get feedback on the following rejected item so that I may improve? Thanks! Link follows:
Hi to the Forum
Hey Starry… it’s a great piece of music… but some things are wrong indeed.
My two cents:
The mix: It’s a very bright mix… nothing wrong with that, But is lacking in the bottom end quite a bit. For something like this piece to be epic it needs that low end, low mid.
Dynamics: The dynamics are all over the place with the strings… it does buildup a bit, but then weakens at 0:38 for example… completely destroying the buildup and tension rising.
Piano: The piano in the first part seems to have no different dynamics either, just strong hits on the keys it seems. The piano also has a very MIDI feel in the first part, or over-quantized… sounds fake. The solo part sounds fine.
Percussion: Again, great idea… but they sound so thin and without “meat” if you know what i mean. Thicken those sumbitches up with that low end and low mid for a true cinematic epic sound.
Also, at 0:53 there is no crash cymbal… not necessary, but it would give that moment much more impact.
Hope this helps a bit… again, it’s a great idea just not executed well… keep working on this on as it is a great piece Starry!
Your feedback is awesome! Thank you so much!!! I look forward to listening to and studying some of your extraordinary tracks. Maybe I could study with you? Again, sincere thanks! Great and very helpful!
I have listened to your track, and I agree with all @RobertSlump said, he told you every detail. Good luck!
Thank you! This is excellent feedback!
Hello friend. @RobertSlump’s comments are 100% accurate, but I’d like to add one more thing. Make sure to always leave some space at the start and the ending of your track. You can start your songs with a riser or a drum crescendo etc. It makes buyers’ lives easier!
Awesome Voidcore. Thank-you!
I agree with @RobertSlump. Problems with sound first of all. Problems with dynamic. Also I think it’s better to change some vst instruments (but maybe problem with sound appears only after mixing). Good luck!
Your comments are great and your music is awesome. Do you have any recommendations for Epic sounds or Corporate sounds?
Hi, @Starry_Music. There are many cool vst instruments. For epic works there are cool orhcestral libraries - from Spitfire, ProjectSAM, Cinesamples. Also very cool demos in new strings libraries from native instruments - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUCoBQahhT0
For corporate music you can use free library - firebird palm muted guitar
This is excellent advice. I have been using mostly Kontakt/NI (but not the latest), East/West and 8DIO and I see you are recommending these other libraries.I will try them .
Thank you for your generous help!
