New Composition, Reverb and Template

Well, after a couple of weeks dedicated to improving and tweaking my orchestral template – I have finally been able to test drive it with a new composition!  I was able to put this together today in about 3 hours and I’m quite happy with how it turned out.  Sorry that it cuts out at the end, I’ll be continuing it when I get time.

I did however use Albion double basses as I find them so powerful and smooth.
