Terra's Theme - Final Fantasy VI
- Not sure if it got messed up importing into v26 but the Layer 2 tie in m17 RH should be flipped downward.
- The repeat ending numbers should only display "1." and "2." instead of including 3 and 4.
- I think the Layer 1 tie in m33 RH would look better flipped downward, although it's fine if you want to keep it upward.
- m39 dynamic is really close to the barline and could also be moved upward.
- Not super fond of the way m55-56 LH sounds, particularly the fifth on beat 3. I hear where it comes from... I just don't think it sounds great on piano. That's just my take, though.
- D.S. at the end is almost touching the eighth notes on beat 4. (Maybe another v26 import error? I see the last two eighth notes flipped upward, but maybe they should be flipped down instead?)

Encounter
The only suggestion I have would be to make sure the string melody is on top in m25-28 Layer 2; it should be A-A-A-B-C-D. I know this will make the chords less dense in 25-27, but I think adding a crescendo into m28 would work really well as voices get added in.

Terra's Theme
All changed.

Encounter
I don't hear the As in m25 and 26 at all. Rather, I hear the top being the F and the chord below it being the rest. I did, however, hear it for 27-28 so I added it in.

Terra's Theme - Final Fantasy VI - Last few things that I didn't notice earlier, mostly visual:
- Tempo should be 160 instead of 150.
- Dynamics in m1 and m5 are a bit too far to the left and should be moved right to be aligned with beat 1.
- The quarter rest in m8 RH beat 3 is a little too high for my taste. I think moving it down one increment would look better.
- Finale tends to put repeat ending numbers (m19 and m21) a bit too far to the right; they should be moved left to be aligned with beat 1.
- m32 LH beat 4 should be two eighth notes instead of a triplet.
- Could you add a little bit of space to the beginning of m59 to give the rolled chord symbol some breathing room?

Also, I always thought that there was an eighth note G# on beat 2.5 of m1-4, and the fact that there actually isn't is going to bother me every time I listen to this track from now on.

You already have the As in 25 and 26, I was just suggesting that they be the top note (but below Layer 2) rather than C and D, but looking at it again I think it looks and sounds fine.
For m27-28, I also meant that they be the top note but I meant that they should still be below Layer 2, sorry if I was unclear. All of Layer 2 should be below Layer 1, but the top notes in Layer 2 should be A-B-C-D (i.e. move those notes down an octave); hopefully that makes sense.

Spirit of Avarice
- I actually prefer MasterProX's original LH accompaniment for m29-36, since that's when the drums kick back in, most notably the snare on all the offbeat 8ths. Changing the accompaniment also helps m21-28 contrast more with the surrounding parts.
- Copyright info, page numbers, and page titles are outside the margins; for Page 1 you could probably decrease the space between systems to make this work. The top title/composer/arranger info also seems a little cramped.
- Left side of the tempo marking should be aligned with the left side of the time signature.
