Kjell Prytz replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion Conceptual track for Disney's Mulan
"Nice soundtrack, overall good, but that moment at 1:24 when main theme enters with cello is extraordinary, sent shivers down my spine. I had wanted a continuation of this concept.
A negative soundtrack effect is the drumming. To me, the piece would…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion Conceptual track for Disney's Mulan
"Appreciate the feedback!  My biggest weakness is definitely the mixing and am still struggling with it.  I will keep trying to tinker with it as I'm not sure if it's more of an instrumentation issue than strictly mixing - perhaps both.  

Thanks for…"

David Lilly replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion Conceptual track for Disney's Mulan
"The mix fails you at about 1:30 in. There is too much noise going on and the sound comes off as super limited. 
The instrumentation sounds good, sounds like top notch film scoring sample packs, some percussion packs and a nice strings sampling pack.…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion "Moses Returns" (Biblical Epic)
"While the percussion may seem rather loud, it is intentional.  It is a more modern take on the story and the intent was to keep the essential traditional instruments to ground the theme.  Thanks for the listen - I am intending on making a more…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion "Moses Returns" (Biblical Epic)
"Yeah I definitely want to explore the theme a bit more and perhaps use some more of the microtonal phrasing - good call. Ingo Lee said:
I like the Moses Returns with the exotic instrument sounds. East West is cool for that and you make good use of…"

"I like the Moses Returns with the exotic instrument sounds. East West is cool for that and you make good use of it.  I would like to hear more of the microtonal eastern phrasing on this, the grace notes you included have some of that character but I…"

"Thanks for the listen Felix.  I like the idea of the choir building up a bit more - still a bit new to the choir VST and am still tinkering around with it as I just got it."

Felix Stephan Music replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion "Moses Returns" (Biblical Epic)
"I can't really say anything bad about the "Moses Returns" track.
I could see this in a movie scene from like "the mummy" or something ^^

You could have made the track a little longer i guess.
Maybe with some male choir staccatos to build up even…"

"Thanks again Susan! Looks like we're bumping into each other everywhere haha.  

Glad you enjoyed it though! I like to think the ambient chatter in the background adds another layer to the melancholic melody.  Maybe I will try more experiments like…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to Miguel Angel Urbano Lasarte's discussion my first video
"Hey Miguel,

I quite enjoyed this! Very nicely synced to the video and great use of ambient soundscape in the beginning.  My only suggestion would be to add some reverb to the brass at the end as it sounds rather dry but that's mainly more a…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to Renan Javier Cabrera's discussion "Exodus: Gods and Kings Theme" - Composition based on the upcoming Bible-epic by Ridley Scott.
"Glad you liked it Bob.  

And yes I normally do like to do compositions based on upcoming films as I like to get my own version of it before I hear the final score.  It's just fun to hear the contrast in the end! Usually I do it based on the first…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to elias nilsson's discussion Advices for a beginner
"Hey Elias, 

A plug-in I recommend is PSP Vintage Warmer, just with the presets alone you can get your music sounding louder and more powerful as it boosts certain frequencies and helps round out the mix.  I would tinker around with it and wouldn't…"
