I really think the piano could use some velocity differences and humanized timing. Also it's kind of thin on it's own. Maybe a different sample or consider lower accompanying chords. Too much reverb and delay – dial it down and send the delay to the reverb as well.

Low strings in the intro could do well with some dynamic CC riding. Too static. I don't know reFX Nexus but maybe it's just moving the mod wheel up to phrase it.

The effect on 0:34 comes WAY out of left field. Dial it down and maybe send it to a room reverb (what's called ER). It's a night and day difference between where the piano and strings sit and where the effect comes. To ease the listener you could maybe do a reverse-reverb trick leading up to the effect, so we know that somethings coming the first time.

Drums could do with some ER's as well.

The string melody on the other hand is a strange choice for sound. Other than it's lacking the same dynamic shaping as the cello and doesn't emphasize your nice turns in the melody it doesn't break the phrase anywhere.

If this is the best sample you've got you could try EQ'ing it so the highs stand out more (this can also very well be done with a saturation plug-in of any kind). You could also double it (unison or at the octave below) with a legato saw lead, any woodwind sample or a more tightly attacked string sound.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your kind comment. Actually I just used reFX Nexus presets and did nothing more on the voice (except some compression).
