Critique Please – Edge Of Light

From reader “hysteria”:

I like it ( really like it) but sometimes i listen to it and im not sure if its really that good. I would love to know what some other composers such as yourselves make of it.

Critique Please – Saddest Day In September

Hello Reviewers!

Please provide feedback on the recording of this track. It’s fine if you are not a fan of ambient/new age music … I am looking for critiques regarding the balance, quality of the recording, use of effects, and so on. I am the flute player, so feel free to include comments there as well. Thank you in advance for your time!

Critique Please – Aaron Copland – Esque

I’ve been trying to get my brother Scott into this end of the business for the last few years. I’ve always been a big fan of his writing so when a library recently requested an Arron Copland like piece I prodded him into it. Scott is used to writing for a live orchestra and we all know how challenging recreating an orchestra in a DAW environment can be! He would appreciate any feedback on his piece.

Critique Please – The Mayer of John

Dennis sent me the following e-mail and would like a critique of The Mayer of John.

The Mayer of John

Sound Alike – John Mayer
An easy going pop rock instrumental with some dynamics.
Moods- Happy reflective thoughtful

I have some success with this as far as a few sales on Revostock. A few other small libraries liked the tune but I can’t get this or others in the some of the bigger libraries like Jingle Punks. Therefore a critique is in order to determine what to improve.
