Good work, really enjoyed listening.
Stormdrum 2 is pretty dated, I’ve never been able to use it as much as I’d like just because the drums don’t sound good enough. You should check out the recently released Stormdrum 3 instead.
If you’re looking for the kind of toms you hear in virtually every trailer these days check out 8dio’s epic toms, http://8dio.com/instrument/epic-toms-ensemble/ – they sound fantastic and are relatively cheap. I absolutely love the sound.
I specialize in trailer music. Take a look at these tracks or check out my portfolio for more.http://audiojungle.net/item/sparkle-of-hope/5322873 http://audiojungle.net/item/twist-of-fate/5220613 http://audiojungle.net/item/war-machine/5220638 http://audiojungle.net/item/salvation/5220617

This is strange, you mention that you’ve got a job in producing music for television yet you take constructive feedback very personally – do you respond with this sort of arrogance to your clients as well? If so, then good luck trying to keep that job.
You’re not a shiny untouchable golden god, you’re not putting out world-class mixes. The point is, you CAN make mistakes and you should embrace criticism.
Hm, I’m in doubt. I have this one track which has been in the queues for like half a week now. It got soft-rejected due to my own mistake (messed up the watermarking). Now it has been updated and in the update-queue again for 2 days. The review progress is still exactly the same as when I posted it: 10%. I uploaded multiple other tracks in the meanwhile and they’re at 80%+, 2 even at 98%/99%. As it seems there’s something amiss here, I’m thinking of just deleting the item and fully reuploading it from scratch again. I suppose I’ll wait another 2 days and see then if the progress is still at 10% or not.
Same thing happened to me, although it’s only 7 hours since I uploaded the updated file the progress bar hasn’t moved one pixel.
I only ever seem to use limiters on two occasions, at the end of my mastering signal chain and on my drum track if certain hits are way too loud.
I don’t think using limiters on every track within a song is a good idea. Personally I’d never mix like that, if I wanted to bring the body of a sound up I’d use a compressor.
