Hi all

This is my cover of The Sound of Silence. It was done in Reason 10 only. The synths are all Thor, and the strings are StringWERK. The horns, woodwinds, percussion and electro drums are all Orkester and Factory Sound Bank. The drum kit which comes in at the end is from the Reason Drum Kits refill.

This song was a real challenge to perform as I go right from the bottom to the top of my range (bottom E to top G). I had to train to expand my range to two octaves + 3 semitones to perform this how I wanted it. I hope I did it justice.

The doubled voice sounds realy nice! I like also the strings and the sequenze. I think the drum sound needs more epic sounding.

Thank you! I was really happy with the way the strings and vocals worked too. I actually agree about the drums. I needed to use more compression and make them bolder and add some more percussion parts really.
