Default Hollywood Strings - Sherlock Holmes [Cover]

Quick cover to test out how awesome Hollywood Strings spiccato patches are.

Hollywood Strings :
Spiccato Patches [ Bass/Celli/Violas/Violins ]
Violin Run patch

I used all microphones on Violas to emphasise and position them even more in the mix.

Hi Sham,

one of my favourite soundtracks - I apologise if my criticism sounds harsh. I hope you're looking for constructive criticism.

You've captured the mood of the piece very well. May I ask if you transcribed by ear or had access to the written score?

I feel like the brass is a bit too reverb-y. The reverb muddies up what's supposed to be short and sharp. I also think that a bit more difference in velocity would help the short strings - give it some accent. It sounds like a pretty concentrated velocity range.

Other than that, very nice.
