    This is my first time posting a song of mine on this forum. Major props to Daniel James and Aaron Frensley for bringing us Project Chaos. Truly inspiring. This song features SCS and Joshua Bell Violin for strings, Hollywood Brass, Vikings, Momentum, Absynth, and Chaos of course.

    Any feedback and suggestions are encouraged. Thanks.

    nice track, Kevin

    that's some meaty low strings at 55s :emoji_poultry_leg:

    any layering/transposing to achieve that?

    Appreciate the comment!

    Honestly, Spitfire Chamber Strings does this pretty well on its own but it had help. It's a unison phrase played by cellos at C2 and basses at C1. One patch each. No transposing. I suppose that's an octave interval but I think of them as unison in principle. I did layer it with a sub sine using Serum with a soft attack. It's a subtle application but effective. SCS did most of the work IMO.

    great! :)
    I like your style...composing vs. mixing / mastering -> how long did it take, if I might ask?

    Roughly three weeks from start to finish. Though that is uncharacteristically fast for me.

    I had to tame some low end during the mixing process. I definitely wanted a series of heavy phrases toward the beginning but realized that the low end was hiding the overtones of the low strings. Multiband processing saved me here.
