    Hello everyone!

    Recently created this mockup of one of my favorite Goldsmith pieces. I tried to get as close as I could to recreating the sound of the recording from the film. I used the version from the end credits as a reference. Feedback would be much appreciated!

    This is really good, it captures a lot of the feeling and expression. The staccato notes in the brass sound a little short and loud, I don't think they were quite that accented and staccato in the original. They stand out just a tad. The snare/bass drum might be a little on the loud/boomy side but just a little.

    Thanks for the critical listening! I do agree that some of the brass shorts are a bit too accented. I think it just happens to be some of the RR samples that are a bit stronger than the others.

    I like it, some things could be finetuned but overal it sounds quite good, especially toward the end. Would you send me the midifile?
