OM to the G. This is awesome

I first looked at producing trance around 6 months ago, managed to create 2 tracks. Allan was kind enough to check them out and thought I would benefit from learning how to produce professional sounding tracks

Taking this on board I went ahead and bought this course. About halfway through now and my new track I'm producing already sounds 100 times better than my previous 2.

I'm excited to get to the end of the course and confident I will have a professional sounding track to release by the end of it.

I have also bought the kicks pack and 2 sound design tutorials. Everyone is awesome

I'm happy to be working with Allan and I'm certain with his guidance and tutorials I will reach my goal of being a professional producer.

I highly recommend any trance producers new or experienced to check out Allan for guidance and ideas.

Cheers Allan for all your hard work on the courses, they have helped me so much. Your a legend mate.

Best AM tutorial so far

This is a very helpful tutorial for well preparing a track before undergoing a Master. It was very helpful to me as I had to send some pre-master to my new label. If the mastering engineer advised me to change no more than a couple of things, it means that I learned a lot from Allan Mixdown tutorials! Thank you Allan, keep going and STAY TRANCE :)
