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.
I did not expect to learn as much as i did from Armin class , in particular the advice in a practical sense to enjoy the music first and not to put pressure on the learning. I have a Masters degree and i never enjoyed learning. This take away has resonated with me and is my key take away. Adrian Maraspin
For the basics of electronic music, this really helped. I learned a bunch of little tricks that I'm already putting to good use in my own tracks.
I learned that when making mashups or a less than ideal transition between songs, reverb is a good tool to smooth out most imperfections. I also learned about the basics of arrangement in creating a song.
I was always curious how Armin made his mixes. So I decided to do the course. It teaches me new approaches ens new techniques. Very valuable. Thank you Armin for this Great Masterclass ;-))
