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.
Love the attitude and clear explanations. Inspired to continue creating music! Thanks!
Great course for beginning and intermediate music producers and DJ's. Armin touches on many practical and creative approaches to dance music.
Armin is an intelligent and eloquent, friendly and positive guy who isn't afraid to share everything he knows. He really lets you watch how he does things. This course was about a million times better than deadmou5, who only seemed to be superficially improvising.
I wanted to see how Armin used his DAW to produce. Learned a lot of fun techniques.
