Great to see how Armin works collaboratively. No arrogance at all. Super loved this class!

La critica, la calidad y todo el trabajo de Armin me parece realmente excelente. No es el artista que más escucho pero me motiva y me identifico con su vision de la innovación en la música y la perseverancia que puede ser dificil mantener para todos en algun punto y llega a ser algo frustrante. Me siento agradecido y morivado mas ahora que terminé esta MASTERCLASS,. Gracias Armin.

Seeing a pro's flow of work was really helpful. Recommended tools / plugins too

Great insights into djing, production, professional development and industry style ! Cheers Armin

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.

Awesome course :). Dank u wel voor alles Armin! Time for full time production and mixing sessions 8).

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!

Great class. I have been producing music for 15 years and just started DJing least year as a way to play out my music for other people. I enjoyed a lot of the affirmation I received in the way that I approach producing music and really enjoyed the simple tips about constructing a set list.
