These are my two new tracks I did yesterday. I used the new Triton VST on the first one and the second one, but the second one only uses one track of it for a reverse cymbal. The second one uses almost all free VSTs, like FS Blues Steel, Dexed, FabBass, and Apari Tenpan for the drums. The only non free VST I used on it was the Triton VST for the reverse cymbal.

Edit: any comments would be appreciated.
Synth1, PG8X, Dexed, Sound Canvas VA, FB-3x00 series, blooo, scrooo, qyooo, SQ8L, GTG FM4, DSK Asian and Indian DreamZ, and much more VSTs. Casio, Yamaha, Korg, Alesis HW.

Aloha Oe has more of a country feel to me than Hawaiian, though I hear the reference. The composition is decent --it's kind of goofy in a fun way. The weakest aspect IMHO is production/mixing. Everything was competing for the same sonic space w/o much difference in volume. Also sounded like everything was recorded dry -- the parts could have benefited from some processing to create distinction and interest. My .02.

Will be posting some of my music soon.
