Very nice!
I'm still dickering around for two years now trying to get the strings to sound as fluent and true as they came across here. Good musical piece, very compact and nice on the ears, thanks!

Thank you my friend
I spend like a good long time after the melody is done messing about with the reverb and other settings to make sure they sound right for the song. These strings needed a dark hall reverb but with only 60% dry/wet any more will hide the notes and make it hard to hear the counterpoints.

Overture #1
Engaging piece, UB. Positive but still with some gravitas. Good sound, too, especially the lower register strings. Thanks, Peter.

Thanks Peter
This was a difficult one to do because I have to be careful not to be too much Beethoven in an Overture since I am so inspired by him.
