It's a really catchy tune but very short. I liked the harmonica sound - what was it made with?

The harmonica sound was made with Dexed using a modified version of one of the DX7 ROM 2A factory presets.

Well, could be a bit longer, obviously. Also could use a little bit of reverb. Something. Sounds like everything was recorded and mixed completely dry. Could use a little more love to get it sounding a little more polished.

PS - Listen to SouledOut's track HERE

That's how an 80s track should sound ambiance wise.

Nice track. I agree with wagtunes' comment on reverb. With just that added, the track will sound MUCH better. Keep it up! :)

Just checked,
Fruity Reverb comes with it and also EQ.
I’ll be using those soon, probably presets like gated reverb for 80’s drums.

I suggest using Fruity Reeverb 2.
