This is a must for trance producers. Kick and Bass tutorial was really good.
This tutorial brought my production skills on completely new level. With Allan's help I have discovered techniques that I wasn't even aware of. Must have for every trance producer.
I like Alan's way of producing. Easy to understand, have learned some tips that I use when producing.
This really goes through everything involving in a full mixdown in realtime, which is something that you just can't get anywhere else - so there is no wondering what adjustments have been made due to editing. On the flipside, it can be a bit tedious to get through the whole video and I could not do it in one sitting without losing focus, but that's probably my attention span and all in all I'm glad I pushed myself through the whole thing, and feel a bit better of a producer at the end.
A really in-depth tutorial suitable for all levels. Definitely worth investing in if you want to get in to product, I’ve watched this tutorial 3 times and learned something new each time. I’ve purchased a 2nd tutorial and will be purchasing more in the future to help my production techniques
