    You really should rework your website. I see only destroyed/weired pictures (I'm using Firefox) and don't know where to navigate to find out more about your music.

    worst use of capitals ever. :)

    Anyway, I gave your samples a listen, and I like it.
    Most songs have production issues. They sound like they're exported right out of the tracker, with no post-production whatsoever. That way, you're not taking advantage of the ogg/mp3 format to the fullest.

    I enjoyed your funk tunes most, and I think you're quite talented in that area.

    The orchestral music wasn't too impressive, and the instruments used sound very fake and plastic. A better sample library and some classical music theory would help a lot.

    anyway, keep up the good work!

    Neither is whining about every bit of criticism you receive. These are the people you're hoping to make money from, lashing out because they criticized your website or music (and Melin's critique was pretty constructive, I think) is not very smart.

    Woah guys, ease up a lil' bit.

    For starters, no one here is a veteran composer owning a multi-million studio, so there are bound to be examples and samples with varying sample quality. The fact is, good music is good music, no matter what samples you use and people, contrary to popular belief, do recognize that.

    My point is, what part of Melin's criticisms can be construed as mean, harsh, or rude? He offered his opinions, and gave some advice. Nothing more.

    My comment wasn't aimed at anyone in particular, and I'm certainly in no position to judge who's right or wrong. Just trying to remind everyone that we're all in the same boat, let's try to be friendly to each other, 'kay?

    Love.

    Wow!

    Talk about not being able to take critisism.

    How the expression "worst use of capitals ever" with a smiley attached could be interpreted as rude is beyond my imagination.

    You talk about being professional. Doesn't that include being able to take critisism? You've gone all defensive about your work, and also had to attack my own music.
    I would definitely appreciate some advice from you, but not wrapped up in a whiny post. If that's exactly what you feel about my percussion etc, then I'll definitely look into it. The strings I use are not live, it's from the East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold Pro XP library, which I bought four a couple of thousand dollars. I think they're terriffic, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. I certainly have much to learn when it comes to making an orchestra sound completely authentic.

    You strings may be recorded live, but they do sound a bit plastic. Why you felt the need to tell me to "listen again" like ten times, and going on about your professional audio-engineer, I don't understand at all.
    This is just my opinion. In my ears, the strings sound a bit plastic, and they do have some production issues. I'm not saying that to be rude, but to help out.
    What recording equipment do you use for recording strings? I'd like to know a bit more about your setup, as that would help me give better advice how to make the strings, in my ears, sound more lush and warm.

    I respect you as a musician, but you need to calm down a bit.

    This little conversation is way too common:
    composer: "hey, comment our work please"
    random person: "it's quite good. maybe you should work on production"
    composer: "WHAT? the production is perfect! you're wrong."
    random person: "ok, then don't ask for advice."


    Edit: Also, calling someone Melvin throughout your whole post, when it's in fact not my name, could to some be interpreted as both rude and unprofessional.

    completely pointless heated discussion really. He then deleted all posts, but you didn't really miss anything.
