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.
It inspired me allot, and makes me want to make music now.
You’re one of my heros, hope to meet one day. Thanks for your time and knowledge! Thanks to Benno as well! ;)
Specifically, this class helped me understand acquiring and processing vocals better. This knowledge, in addition to general helpful reminders about music (e.g. always have fun) and several technical tips, will help push my music further, achieve the sounds I want, and most importantly, make listeners (and myself) happy. Thanks Armin!
Great instructor, learned writing, producing, mixing electronic music. And also a few quick performance tips
