Listening again, I agree that the choir comes in kind of strong in the beginning 8 bars, but I think it's more or less alright by me when they come in again later.
I tried using the close-mic version of those patches, but something sounds odd about it. As far as unifying the ensemble, they all have different levels of early reflections in the same space, but a unified tail reverb. The whole spatial issue is quite new to me, this in my opinion is my first mix where there's some level of realism in that but I have a really long way to go, haha.
I applied a 6db low pass filter at around 15-16 kHz on the harp and also lowered the highs in the the library's own provided EQ.
I got feedback from a few people that the harp doesn't sound sweet enough, but to my knowledge, harp isn't THAT mellow in the upper registers since the string length is so short, so i'm wondering if I should leave it as it is, or just put a wide cut of 2-3 db around 2-4 kHz to minimize the finger sound. After listening to it, did you have any thoughts about what you would have done instead?
Hi Nate, sorry for the late reply. I was in Germany for a film and video game music conference and for some reason I could not log on while I was there. It might have had to do with the wireless service in my hostel.
