Really nice. I like the mood of both tracks. I don't know if it was your intent but I got kind of a Reggae vibe going on in both. Just curious did you play any stringed instruments on these or is it all virtual? I thought I heard a banjo in the first one.

Thank you very much for the comments! :)
the "banjo" is Ticky Clav i think.

It's all MIDI triggering sound modules. I program 99% with the macbook trackpad.
but i have a good sense of timing generally, so I can make it sound like it's played, if i put in the time.
The above mixes are 100% static, with no automation as of yet, only LFOs on synths, trance gates and the like.
I'm getting lazier in my old age :P I have a billion tracks that i never release, pretty much because i've lost any passion for linear sequencing. but something like the above tracks i can throw together in about an hour.
