Thank you Armin! Dance music has always been special to me throughout my life and for several years i have been producing electronic music but haven't been able to reproduce the sound and vibe that i love so much. For me it has been like walking in a dark room without a flashlight. But with this course, you gave me a torch!

This class was a very good mix of everything from producing music to presenting your music, and it's coming from a guy who knows what he is talking about. I learned some new interesting things that I will start using from now on. Thanks Armin and Masterclass!

Simply amazing! I have been mind-blown by all the concepts discussed, which I could have never figured out for myself. And Armin is a great teacher!

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.

Thank you very much for the master class. I probably saved years of my life. Armin told a lot of new chips, but it is not important. The main thing that I saw that it's pretty simple, really. Armin said things I thought I already knew. It's like he just reminded me why I'm here. Showed me my way. He's tough. I will definitely release the track on Armada Music. And thanks to everyone who prepared this site, the master class and gave such a wonderful opportunity to learn from the best. Love from Russia!

Awsome ​class Armin, thank you. You pulled me out of a dark place with this one.


Brilliant. I've dabbled in my home studio for a while now and you make it look so easy which it is not but I loved the emphasis on having fun. One day hopefully I'll find that hit that's in me somewhere! Thanks for your enthusiasm and a great positive Masterclass brimming with your passion - beyond excellent and much appreciated big hugs Antz

Thanks, Armin. An honor and a pleasure too. I loved your masterclass. How much inspiration! Thanks for everything. I really enjoyed watching the whole process. Maybe we coincide one day doing what we like the most: enjoy the music and share it. Best regards from Spain. <3

Until now this most inspiring masterclass that I've watched so far. Armin van Buuren was sincere and really shared with us his personal techniques and I really felt that he wanted me to learn and to do something. The attitude was everything. Thank you Armin van Buuren and I hope to see you at Untold 2019, in Cluj, Romania.

There's so much to review here, but for me the studio-process details are endlessly valuable. At first, I thought the studio creating and mixing was long and tedious, but about halfway through I started looking at it all very differently and by lesson 18, I found myself seriously focused and loving it and learning new skills. Yep, I'll be re-watching these for sure! Thanks a zillion Armin!
