Hi Allan. I wrote a review 2 weeks ago but I noticed that by mistake I wrote my review on shop reviews instead on the product. So now I'm writing again my review here.
I have just gone through the Complete Bundle Series 1 [Creating a Trance Track from Scratch] and all I have to say first of all is, it was pretty much worth investing my time and my money on these tutorials. To be honest, I am a beginner and it was the first time I have gone through a professional processing of making a trance track and it really got me from nothing to something which is a significant progress to me. As I have read in another review, I totally agree that one tutorial of yours equals a lot of hours of watching random tutorials on youtube. This means, your tutorials are compact and essential. I also like the fact that your tutorials are not pre-planned because I personally find it very important to show us the issues which may come up during the processing and how to overcome them, rather than showing only that everything is working perfectly. I really enjoyed my time with each and every tutorial of the bundle, although the tutorial 005 - Tech Drop is the only one I haven't gone through yet just because it didn't really suit my track but I will probably check it out later in the future. There are some of the tutorials that I have gone through them 3 or 4 times and each time I had something new to learn. The first 4 tutorials of the bundle (Kick & Bass, Percussion, Acid and Trance Melody/Pads & Breakdown) have been very helpful as it was the first time for me to deal with the most basic elements of my track. Also, the tutorials 6, 7 and 8 have been really interesting because I managed to cover many gaps of mine and it helped me understand better the role of each element in the track. The Full Track Mixdown is the tutorial I liked the most and I really enjoyed working with it hours hours because that's what made me feel even more "producer". Indeed, after I finished the mixdown on my track with the tutorial, I could hear a lot of difference and improvement as I managed to give more space and clarity to the sound. I didn't expect such a difference to be honest. However, I still need a lot of work on mixing and generally on producing. I'm still at the beginning anyway. Although I use FL Studio, I can say that it wasn't difficult to transfer the knowledge into my DAW. The last tutorial of the bundle (010 - Vocal Adlibs & Piano) is the only tutorial I still haven't purchased yet because the project into my DAW have become heavy enough for my 10 year-old laptop so I couldn't go longer with the processing. I am really looking forward to purchasing this tutorial and other tutorials as Trance Mastering and Trance Atmospheric intro. I would highly recommend Allan Morrow's tutorials.
Thank you so much Allan for sharing your knowledge.
You have been a great tutor!
hi there alan just thought i would say what a brilliant tutorial i purchased off you 108 days ago. i have learned alot even tho i dont use ableton i only use fl studio i have still been learning the fundimentals in depth of using plugins and how to prevent side chaining and using the piano roll and how to make your kick and bass to sound punchy and geting you tracks sound like a pro. your tutorials are very educating and unique and very easy and simple to understand the basics of trance music production. these tutorials i will keep for years and allways keep going back to them over and over again if get stuck ect. i would reccomend your tutorials to any 1 and tell them they are worth every penny. thank you alan i will buying more of your tutorials in the near future kind regards ronnie whiteley
In December 2019, I had the choice between buying another VST or purchase AM's Trance Bundle Package. I chose this Trance Package. It's been one of the best purchasing decisions that I've made in a long time and has accellerated my knowledge and skillsets within weeks that would normally have taken me years if I continued to search for this kind of information by watching countless Youtube clips, or learn through hit and miss efforts on my own.
Each video is about 2 hours long in which Allan goes into deep details of the techniques and concepts he uses to create professional sounding Trance tracks. His insights and instructions are the best source of knowledge and inspiration that I have ever come across. Much of the information he shares can also be used in other styles of EDM genres.
When it comes to EDM, Alllan's Trance Bundle is my one and only go to reference that sits on my Desktop.
