Hey Sam, 

 

The composition itself is very effective! I really enjoyed that aspect but unfortunately the production and the samples need tweaking. I've checked out several of your tracks and they are great music but limited in their delivery. If these are purely mock ups that you'll have recorded with live musicians, that's certainly one thing. But if these tracks will be the end product then I think investing in some higher quality sample libraries that can take your production up several notches would really help. You've certainly got the knowledge and talent - your set up seems to be getting in your way. 

 

Edit: I see that you're using Hollywood Strings from one of your SC comments. That's certainly a good library but it's important to know that even great sample libraries can come off stale if the production isn't polished enough. That's what I think is happening based on several of the tracks I've listened to. The emotional playing that you achieve on Almost Home, gorgeous playing by the way, is absent in your larger orchestral tracks. That's a real shame because the content is good - it's just not well "performed." Try to achieve the same emotional delivery with your large ensembles as you do when recording a solo piano track. Hope that helps.

 

Thanks for sharing!
