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.
What an amazing time! Armin is such a humble person, big respect and thank you Armin, Benno and the team from Masterclass. It was a unique experience, i learnt quite a lot.
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!
I enjoyed every second. It was great to get new ideas, ways to look at things and getting a look into the mind of one of the greatest producers of our time.
