Once you’ve laid down a bunch of great musical ideas in your project, it’s time to sculpt the sound and make sure your audience is hearing everything you want them to. Open your ears and expand your skills with these lessons in mixing.
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.
This class actually inspired me to buy a keyboard. Not to make music, but to learn how to play and it has definitely increased my love for music. Seeing Armin's passion that he has for making his music has really helped me appreciate his and other peoples music more. I may get a software and play around with some sounds and just like Armin says, have fun with it.
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.
Clear answer to my curiosity about music making progress
Amazing Masterclass. Armin is a great musical, composer, and orator. So much good information and insight was gleaned from the class.
