Classic Trance Leads & FX Review

I'm still learning the ropes regarding it all but Allan has made production and understanding much easier so I'm not wandering through such thick fog. I would strongly recommend the tutorials and future ones if you feel you are stuck with your music/how to begin. Allan, if you happen to see this review. I think it would be nice to have a Classic Trance song done within Ableton in the future as well. ;)
