Your tracks always have the best use of reverb.  The string solo has so much depth and vibrato to it too, and all of these sounds have such tactile timbres.  Really neat work with this one!

Wow, those strings are amazing! Really, really well thought-out arrangement here.

April 13, 2020 1:01 am

Just beautiful.

The strings sound good

It has a really mournful and haunting quality.  Really nice stuff.

Wow, gorgeous.  The reverb washed piano in the beginning/in the background is such a cool touch.  Really making good use of the 3D space, which is very difficult to do in my opinion.  Love that resolution to the major chord at 1:40 too, was definitely waiting for that the whole time.

Really beautiful string arrangement. Absolutely steals the show. Favoriting this one.

So pretty. The strings/piano combo always works.

You are excellent at creating such an open space. The strings were key.

Agree with the others: this is just beautiful.  Like @Chrisfoo said the heavy reverb piano in the beginning is great.

A real treat listening to this, love the intro and when the violin cuts in, great ambience in the background.

Man, I want to do strings like this!! Great comp and sound. Beautiful violin. Very expressive over the piano. Lovely resolve at the end.

Thanks man heart The secret weapon for tactileness is the spitfire labs free soft piano, it has such a great hammer sound and felty texture.

Wow that's really sweet. Nicely done. The violin and keys are just amazing together, reminds me of parts of the BotW soundtrack.

Very enoyable, very haunting indeed
