This is the first time I tried out the new strings in garageband app. I started out sliding my fingers on the strings, this is the beginning. I kept it cause it feels kind of raw. The melodie slowly evolves from me trying things out.

I am new at this and just started a few months ago. Would like input from professional musicmakers on how to edit and mix for a more professional feel :) Got a lot to learn. Use headphones!

This is an interesting piece. I like the free flowing form of it - fits nicely with the shoreline theme. A couple of suggestions to improve the overall sound: Try first panning your instruments as they would be in an actual orchestra arrangement - example - cellos panned to the right; violins to the left, etc. You can find seating charts easy online - just google them.

Second, be careful when applying ambient effects on your instruments. Often a simple reverb will be adequate for strings. Sounds like what you have going on here is either a short repeating delay, or a spring reverb - neither one is typically used on strings - though that doesn't necessarily mean you CAN'T.

Anyway I'm no expert but I've worked with the Garageband strings for a couple of years - you're off to a good start, and I enjoyed your composition - good luck, and welcome to macjams
