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.
Topics include: Working With Drum Samples • Every Kick Has a Top and Bottom • Adjust Your Kick to Fit Your Track • A/B-ing Kick and Bass Sounds: "Be In The Moment" • Make Room for Your Kick to Shine Through
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.
One of the most helpful things was learning what a DAW is and how to use it. Also appreciated insight into Armin's thinking process and how he approaches music.
I was in doubt of following the masterclass, would it be interesting enough? Well, it is!
What an awesome class - created my own 4 track EP which will be due out just as soon as it has been signed (or not :) )
This is one of the best masterclasses I've seen. Practical and insightful knowledge --Chord
