Song title:

Thank you for participating in the HOFA Song Contest! We'd like to give you a feedback to your contribution.

Wow, you have succeeded in creating a very beautiful track here, which captures the mystical character of ancient Egypt very well and presents it very epically. At the same time, you have succeeded in making the song always exciting through a constantly increasing song dynamic and thus different parts in the track. In addition, you have used characteristic instruments, such as harps, lutes and flutes, as well as the characteristic vocals, to authentically portray ancient Egypt.

In general, you have worked very detailed in the programming and used high quality VST instruments as well as enough velocity and articulation to make the track look natural. 

You also did a very good job with the mix: Especially through the high amount of reverb and its size, you managed to create a big and epic sound, as is usual in this genre. Apart from that, the elements are also broadly placed in the panorama. Sometimes you could set the percussions and drums a little louder to create an even greater impact, but that's just a matter of taste. Depending on your taste, you could also control the lead voice and the flute in the first part of the track a little more dynamically, so that they are stable - but that doesn't necessarily have to be the case in this genre.

The analyser shows that the track is a little bit mid-range and the treble is a little bit weak, which is mainly due to the loud reverb and therefore does not need to be corrected. If you want, you can add a little more, especially in terms of loudness.

All in all, you've managed to create a great track that can't be improved much - keep it up! :)
