"Glad to hear it!
And you are right about side-chaining. Very much an EDM thing and other punchy pop things with lots of sub woofer stuff that everything else needs to dance around to be heard."

8Rivers replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Valse Miniature - Solo Piano
"Very good! I make film music and it's usually very crowded but hearing a solo piece that's good is very rare.

Best

"Man you were right!
sidechain is for EDM and Trance and it was useless here

"With respect, I wouldn't break out things like side-chaining. This just needs basic EQ. Up a few db at 2500 - 3500. May still need a touch more 5000 and/or some 8000 (for "air").

"Let me know if I have taken too great a liberty here......but I added some EQ and a bit of compression to the tune. This brought up artifacts in your mix - and running through my equipment made that worse - but still, it brought out good things,…"

"Thanksit's Tiko drums mixed with hard rock drums mixed with Cinetools drums which shows how insecure I was about mixing action drums with classical :D"

Thanks for the feedack. It was a little hard mixing modern drums into classical music and I'm glad it's satisfactory"

"This has such a great sound to it. I really love the underlying drums that keep the pacing feeling fast. Paired with the somber strings you feel a desparation to be, as you said in describing the song, back with the one you love."
