    Hi everyone,

    I put the last hand yesterday to my MIDI mock-up of this wonderful piece from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban's soundtrack. I made it as a programming & mixing exercice for my scoring studies. Enjoy and feel free to tell me what you want to say about it :)

    Awesome! I like the way you did the video with the little pictures of the instruments. Very entertaining.

    Of course, the midi performance itself was very good. You did an awesome job with the music and the presentation.

    Transcribing a whole PDF score note by note into my DAW was quite a pain in the arse I must say, but I'm glad it turned out well ^^ Thank you for the kind words

    Awesome! Nice mix.

    If I were to nitpick I thought in some parts it sounded a little bit mechanical. It makes a big difference with samples if you 'humanize' them a tiny bit by varying the velocity and rhythm by a tiny fraction

    I admit I don't do that much, I find the humanizing tool in FL Studio quite unpractical. I usually make sure to blurry keyboards and mallets rhythms' precision a little bit (for instance here the celeste) but that's all. Thank you for your feedback !
