Armin steps behind the CDJ decks to talk you through what gear he uses in his live sets and why.

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 have learnt that you should be more creative in the music that you produce and don't go by strict rules except making sure it sounds good. With DJing I have only just started, but I have learnt some tricks from him.
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.
Thank you Armin for enlightening us about the world of DJ
Love Armin's presentation style, and that he actually worked up a track idea from scratch. Was more than a little surprised to find out that my usual workflow these days is nearly identical to his!
