Does the positioning of instruments sound a little vague? For example, the horns sound like they are seated with bassoons and the flutes off to the right at times. In fact the woodwind sound like they are sitting in two places at once, they don't sound fixed in one place and flutes wander with pitch.

There is a fair amount of left and right, but not much that is defined centrally.

The recording is very gentle on the ears, and sounds spacious.

Do you have everything on separate tracks? If so, it may be simple to remedy.

It will be interesting to learn what your new approach is.

Sounds a bit double mono
Lacks central grip ,too phasey.
Sorry to be brutal.
New approaches always welcome and fun.

Thats much better Em

Such a marked improvement, particularly when you return to the original file and listen to the track.

I don't know the software you're working with, but I guess you tried various degrees of adjustment? I think the extra reverb has taken away some of the presence and could perhaps be changed a little, but all in all you've arrived at the right destination I think!

Better, sounds less 1940s RCA Radio Studio
Experiment with longer first reflection, its always fun to recreate a proper space.

Try longer pre delay
Reduce verb time
Your options are many!
Experiment with time and space
One of my favs is Scoring Stage from George Lucas's Sky Walker studio
But sometimes I use a short plate and 110 ms pre delay and then fiddle and reverse field for best effect.
