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

Very thorough. I use different software for different styles of music yet this was still very informative. Nice class.

This is a real and honest closer look into producing and dj-ing by Armin van Buren.

Even if his music is not my cup of tea, I found this masterclass very inspiring See his workflow was really great, nice tips, nice personality. I enjoyed it.

Thank you Armin! Signed up for this class wanting to learn more about recording, editing and mixing techniques in Logic Pro and it taught me that. Plus I ended up a huge fan of yours and your music. What a great class! It had everything. Thank you!

I think 'dreaming big' is definitely a part of it. Don't give up, always work toward improving, giving it your all.

Like the previous review, this has put me on the right path, and saved me so many valuable hours. Thanks for your concise lessons and candour. Here's the result of my learnings so far. Take a listen if you get a chance.

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
