    Does this sound real to you (and how can I make it better)

    OK, I have updated my computer and put a template together , and now I'm looking for some feedback on how to make this thing sound more realistic. I'm looking for any suggestions I can get, be it changing reverbs, adjusting EQ, modifying the levels, writing better music, etc.

    My template now is a combination of LASS, Storm Drum 2, VSL special edition, The Trumpet, and a few more random kontakt libraries. For "real" projects I am going to add in as much live percussion and other instruments as possible, but for this test, I used samples for everything.

    Take a listen, and let me know how I can make it better:

    UPDATE: Here is an updated mix (with some slight changes to the percussion and FX), let me know if there is anything you think can make it better.

    Well, I just wanted to say I love this! It's very tasty! Most of it sounds real. I would have to put on some good headphones to really tell.

    How did you do that very high pitched sorta squeaky sound? It's very ominous, and I like it very much!

    The high pitched squeaky stuff was most likely Tonehammer Frendo. It was also the clanky vibe sound in the middle.

    Wow,
    sounds really great to me. I love it. The strings are awesome and the deep brass works well together with them. Really well done!

    Very nicely done Mark!!

    Nice stops-and-starts... great sound. Just found myself enjoying it.

    Nice use of space too!

    Thanks for posting this.

    Cheers,
