Orchestral arrangement of Concord

Post by Concord » Sat Apr 28, 2012 4:19 pm

Hey guys, here's my try at an orchestral arrangement of Concord. My first arrangement, and I don't have a lot of experience working with these types of programs (I'm using Edirol Orchestral through Cubase), but I thought some people here might like it and hopefully some constructive criticism too :)

That sounds cool. Can't wait to hear some other songs as well... :)

Well done, I like the section between 1:40-1:55 really well, as well as the slowing at the end. I would've had a heart attack if my orchestra had to do that. But as I didn't compose or direct anything I can only say it sounds like something you'd hear from a recital. Though I think a grander crescendo at the beginning would've been nice, but that's just personal taste.

Amazing! The cymbals were a little soft for my tastes, but you nailed it with the rest of the instruments, imo. The original's warm and light feeling is encapsulated well in your arrangement. More, please!

Hey guys, I'll most likely start on an arrangement for orchestra for Breathlessly soon. It will take some time though, I'm a huge slacker :)

WOW this is great! Even if I'm not much of a fan of orchestral music I would definitely pay to go see this. Can't wait for breathlessly and many others as well,

Hey guys, Breathlessly is almost finished, only some small mixing things and a few touchups here and there.
I was wondering, which song(s) you guys would like to hear arranged for orchestra (or something else) next?

Can't wait! I would like to hear "Three Stars", if it's even possible to do as its just a piano piece but its nice and sweet. Or maybe Nocturne, the student council and moment of decision? Maybe these suggestion helped? well thats what I want to hear anyways :D

Ha ha, glad to see I ain't the only one who uses Edirol Orchestral (but I need a better and more realstic VST for the orchestra).

Pretty good. Sounds really royal.

I commented on the track itself but I feel it bears repeating here: brilliant, brilliant job. I've heard a lot of covers of the soundtrack and, in my opinion, yours is the first to do it true justice.
