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.
high level information that helped me figure out what pieces to solve. I think if there was some bridge to more in depth how... it could improve the learning experience.
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 learned what plugins Armin was using, very useful, Trance song forms, and language.
Interesting, captivating, and packed with experiential learning. Shared the things I wondered about and felt like I could not find elsewhere.
