Creating a Tech Trance track from scratch.

By far the best tutorials I’ve come across. All done in real time as well so you can see the thought process and keeps it simple. I’ve been producing for several years now and completely self taught. This tutorial was a massive help. Highly recommend. Will be grabbing the Trance tutorial very soon.
Thank you 🙏

Ideal tutorial to get you started

Tutorial is decent. Stripped back and easy to follow along. It's amazing how simple things are when you see the videos.
I personally used Ableton even though Allan used Logic for this one and i haven't had any issues understanding or transferring the same principles.
