I'm wondering if some of the experienced orchestral composers on here can help me with something. I still consider myself fairly novice when it comes to orchestral music. I'm using EWQL Symphonic Silver and Hollywood Strings Gold in this track, but I also wanted to mix in a guitar part a freind of mine recorded. No matter what I do, the guitar does not feel like part of the same "space" as the rest of the EQ instruments. I've tried adding reverb, adding or lowering volume level. It either feels lost in the mix or too powerful and like its standing out.
I humbly request the feedback of anyone who has a spare moment. If you notice anything else glaringly wrong with my attached sample, of course I'd love to know about that too. I come from a more electronic/chiptune background but I've been working hard on orchestral stuff for a while now. Thanks in advance!
