Good lessons, just not what I am looking for now
Love the attitude and clear explanations. Inspired to continue creating music! Thanks!
One of the most helpful things was learning what a DAW is and how to use it. Also appreciated insight into Armin's thinking process and how he approaches music.
I've been following Armin since the beginning, in the mid/late 90's. He's always been an inspiration to me as a dj/producer. Watching him work in Logic pro, also my choice of DAW, has further inspired me to take my music to the next level. I now know what's expected of me.
