Some nice progress already... some remarks tho:

* relax on the drums a bit, they are kinda uhh... distracting now Smile (too much snares/breaks)
* the choir in the intro sounds a bit weird on the second chord; maybe it sounds better when you pick a higher chord in stead of a lower one?
* the first part of the melody (jazz guitar like instrument) feels a bit too fast due to all those arps (at 0:31 or 0:37 for instance)
* the main melody (at 0:55) is quite suitable for a second voice
* I like the string chords you added a lot, they could use some minor tweaking tho Smile

Anyways, I'm curious about the final result! If only I could convince myself to unlazy and do some composing again as well... Tongue

Agreed Smile actually, I already changed those...

* the choir in the intro sounds a bit weird on the second chord; maybe it sounds better when you pick a higher chord in stead of a lower one?

I assume you mean the strings in the background? It's not really a choir (not even a synthchoir)...I'll try a higher chord there, although it did not bother me (doesn't sound out of tune or anything, and the bass drops from D# to B so I lowered the chord also)

* the first part of the melody (jazz guitar like instrument) feels a bit too fast due to all those arps (at 0:31 or 0:37 for instance)

Yeah I have the same feeling, but the timing of the key-notes (if you leave all the graces out of the equation) should be right...there is something funky in the timing of the second part too (the square/synth lead part)...certainly something I will have to look at when the general mix is done

* the main melody (at 0:55) is quite suitable for a second voice

I might add that, although at this point I already feel I am pushing too much in the mix, it does not add to the serenity of the original...so I might actually cut back on things happening there Smile

* I like the string chords you added a lot, they could use some minor tweaking tho Smile

The marcato violas? Yeah I like those as well, I am not even sure HOW they came to be, but I am glad I somehow made them up...any specific points you think should be tweaked? Tones or timing?
