Great course for beginning and intermediate music producers and DJ's. Armin touches on many practical and creative approaches to dance music.

Armin's passion for music and sharing that joy with people could not be more inspirational. I've enjoyed his music since his early years as a dj and seeing what an amazing artist and person he is beautifully demonstrates why he has been so successful. I'm excited to make music again.

I learned what plugins Armin was using, very useful, Trance song forms, and language.

What ever you do don't press the left arrow when writing feedback at the end of a masterclass. The popup window disappears! Before this masterclass I didn't know much about Armin. After watching all of them I am very satisfied with the level of tips and advice shared in his craft. I found myself using a few myself in my own logic sessions. I cant wait to stop watching all these amazing masterclasses so I can focus on my own music production :D until then...these are awesome! Im watching them all!

Epic. This was the best Masterclass I've seen yet. Tremendous breadth of lessons around the entire journey of bringing music from inspiration to the dancefloor, with great depth when it comes to the creation of tracks, mixing, and mastering as well. Huge thanks to everyone involved with creating this class.
