A nice example of synthwave. Good melody with a nice clear mix. :tu:

It sounds like everything is quantized. I think it would be better if the melodies were less robotic sounding.

Fruity probably made a good call with their Video thingee. I feel like I'd love to be able to make video alongside my composing in Reason instead of later in a 3rd party app (HitFilm currently). That said we'd always be hoping for more features so we'd be screaming for V-REs and After Effects Plugins too. Maybe that is a thing for Props to consider by partnering with HiFilm...

Nice sounds and melodies. Funny as I am working on material with a similar feel myself. A form of natural and melodic synth music. I published "Parker Probe" recently with a video.

If you did want to loosen the feel without playing, my method is to use the Groove panel and make a channel where you have your main groove but set a Random offset to create some "slop" in chosen instruments. The trick is not to send drums to this or they sound ikky, but the contrast of the melodic instruments loosening around the drums is very good. The amount of slop depends on the piece/tempo. Just be aware that you may need to shorten all MIDI Notes but up to the Rnd amount or they will either not trigger or portamento overlapping notes.
