This class was great! Aspiring to perform big and this shed a lot of light of realistic goals.
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.
