YAZZ FLUTE! Heck yeah. very cool vibe. High energy even though it is chill - i love the ambiance and where the drums sit. a very petty critique: I am having trouble deciding if that sustained pad/string fading it from like 1:02 to 1:12 is phased or underfiltered....maybe try changing its mix placement slightly.

Digging the Lalo Schifrin vibe here! Great soundtrack possibilities!

Super chilled vibe with that flute. How are you getting such an expressive flute sound? Bass, vibes and drums are also well done.  I like the realism of the arrangement being locked down to a small jazz ensemble without any need for additional tech wizardry or distracting effects.  Well done!

Roland Fantomx6! To this day I am impressed by the sounds and their quality. Lots of instruments that are about as close to real sounding as you can get. And thanks! Yeah this song was just a start done in 5ish hours. Will probably throw some tech wizardry in there eventually.

Good feedback for sure. I'm sure this song has tons more work to be done. This was just a start. And you know I'm a sucker for flute, being as big of Shpongle fan as I am.
