    Finished up a little mini epic of an orchestral instrumental metal track! Used my Blackmachine B6 with a Mesa JP-2C, which is a pretty epic combination. Let me know what you think (mix, mastering, compositing, performance)!

    I really liked it. Maybe the solo section around 4.00 could be a little higher in the mix. Sometimes the orchestra is a little bit too present, and those percussion are dull al times, I think you should rework them on velocity. All in all a very good track. What libraries did you used?

    @_Drizzt_ thank you so much for the feedback! I'll definitely take that criticism to heart for my future compositions!

    I used mostly stock Logic plugins, Omnisphere, and some instruments from the Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra.

    I don't really have anything to say about the mix. Sounds great to me.
    The droning part around 3:30-4:30 gave me serious Bear Mcreary/ Battlestar Galactica score vibes.

    @KnightBrolaire You have a great ear - Bear McCreary's a huuuge influence on me and I was listening to the BSG soundtrack while writing this. Thank you!
