Dance music should make people dance, but it takes skill to give your tracks the sonic impact they need to rock a crowd. Here’s how to dial in your kick drum and bass sounds.
Every week, Armin van Buuren puts 41 million listeners into A State of Trance on his radio show. In his first-ever online class, the platinum-selling DJ breaks down his hits and builds a track from scratch to show you how he produces, performs, and promotes dance music. You’ll learn his technical process for using samples and plug-ins, mixing, recording vocals, and how to DJ a set. Your crowd is waiting.
The class was fantastic. It really helped me expand my skillset and look at my own music in a different way. Very inspiring, and lots of information to process. Great class.
This class helped me uncover imperfections in my process. I took many notes and gave myself plenty of things to work on. Thank you Armin!
I enjoy electronic music. I found masterclass from Armin's website and really appreciated how how creates a project. In this class it was broken down and gives so many ideas of how to explore music.
Armin is an intelligent and eloquent, friendly and positive guy who isn't afraid to share everything he knows. He really lets you watch how he does things. This course was about a million times better than deadmou5, who only seemed to be superficially improvising.
