Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

I has helped me an all aspects of music; production, dj'ing, collaborating, submitting, and having fun! Armin Van Buuren is such an inspiration, and he really shines through in this Masterclass being positive, down to earth, and precise in all his comments. I've never felt more motivated or finished a Masterclass faster than this. 6/6 stars!

This class helped me uncover imperfections in my process. I took many notes and gave myself plenty of things to work on. Thank you Armin!

The instructor was charming and the class contained a lot of useful information. I enjoyed the diverse topics covered and appreciated the case study.

very impressed by the honesty, technical detail and genuine caring and inspiration and humbleness shown on this course. Super value and I got more than what I thought I would get which was just technical information. Thank you Armin, superb job!

I need to watch some tutorials about Logic Pro because I dont even have it. I do try to be organized and color code stuff when Im editing, I video edit stuff and thats why I try to be as organized as possible

What kind of computer (year/processors/ram etc.) are you using that you can run 104 tracks with all those plugins.

I love the part with the coffee, thank you for reminding to drink and eat something in between :D

I was actually asking this question a couple days ago "how do I backup all my data regularly." Is carbon copy cloner the answer?

I as a Software Developer i use "Git" is a distributed version-control system for tracking changes in source code during software, well Armin and all the djs should have something similar

I love Armin's evolution. It's funny how our lives change over time. From late-night production, to just-dropped-the-kids-off-at-school-and-have-had-my-coffee production. Thank you for making me feel less old!

This is of outstanding insight. One thing that I like about splice is that it backs up all the sessions in the cloud. What I would like to know is how do you organize your sound in splice?

I like the fact that he goes over backing up projects. Very important to me as well!!

I am one of those who had a hard drive fail. I lost about 10 tracks that I was really excited to release. All gone. Then I bought a server and never have to worry about that again. Great tip!

My takeaway from saving different versions is to save once the song can be considered matured, based on one's own discretion, I probably won't start saving multiple versions until the piece starts to become complex beyond simply removing a track or hitting Edit>Undo. I think that's what AvB is trying to say here. Also, the Bus 30, 31 technique will be very helpful once experimenting with dynamic processing. I'm really happy to have learned that from this lesson.
