Yes, we've all seen the insert. Yes, we know that a live orchestra did in fact play real instruments at some point during the creation of this CD. The point is that the mixing makes parts of it seem very tinny and fake.

Well, perhaps not the mixing so much as the recording. The "mixing" is strictly speaking just balancing the levels of different microphones, and while it does alter the balance of instruments with regard to eachother, it doesn't change the sound of anything per se. Besides, anything using more than one microphone (or two microphones as a stereo pair) is going to sound unnatural compared to actually listening live with your own two ears. I suppose you already know that, but still...

But the recording of Zimmer and similar scores are quite unique-sounding, going for a different sound of instruments and instrument placement, aswell as stereo width, ambience character and closeness of the micing. But I can't say I find things sounding different from "Jurassic park" to take a well-known example. Obviously the instruments themselves have different characters depending on the player and the manufacturer, but technically speaking, ambience levels, stereo width, the selection of close-miced instruments and their placement etc, seems on par.

If you'd like to give some specific examples of what you feel is unnatural sounding instruments, do give me some, I am open to learning something I might not know about, I mean no disrespect.
