I agree. These are exactly two places where I here and there had to 
settle for "good enough" in order to stay within the time limit.

I'm not gonna mention the places I would change, since they might not be 
the same places you have in mind :-)

Both "til kernen" and "genstart" was originally done with a quickly (and 
thus badly) looped viola, I believe from the free philharmonic samples. 
Anyhow, a friend of mine re-did them on viola, but I still liked some of 
what was in the sampled sound. So I ended up using a mix of real and 
sampled-with-bad-loop viola on both tracks.

I actually liked the audible loop points, so I left them in there.
