Just what I needed today. Beautiful work.

Gentle and harmonic, just as mentioned.

Very laid back and relaxing. Noticeably absent are any percussion instruments which adds to the vibe.  But there is enough percussiveness in the synths to punctuate nicely against the pads.  What are you using to get the guitar sounds?  Sounds very convincing and you referenced an effect pedal so wasn't sure.

Yeah this is super relaxing.  Just really beautiful tones throughout.

Thanks again! Glad to be a help during these troubled times... regarding the gear, it is all a Roland JXp8... there´s no real guitar there, just a bit guitarlike patch. The Strymon big sky is in charge of the huge reverbs and shimmering tones. It is a great pedal. Strymon effects are rather expensive, being the top-line brand, but with Big Sky or Blue Sky (or older el Capistan) you really do not go wrong. If I could keep just one effect unit, it would be the Big Sky.
