Video Duration – 3 hours 20 mins

Want to learn how to make a Hard Trance Melody & Breakdown?

Struggle to create a melody and pads?

Not sure what type of lead sounds to use?

Want to see how to create the melody and progression from scratch?

Struggle to layer properly for that big sound?

Want to see what elements go into a breakdown to keep it flowing?

Learn to build a Hard Trance Breakdown from scratch.

Welcome to this Hard Trance Melody & breakdown tutorial!

Want to create your own Hard Trance Breakdowns but don’t know where to even start?

In this tutorial, I will show you how I create a Hard trance Breakdown from nothing. I will show you how I create the musical elements first, such as the Hard Trance Melody, Pads, Percussion, Counter plucks etc. (Listen to the audio file above to hear what is created). I will then show you how I layer the sounds to create a big wall of sound and get a professional sound.

After this, I will be laying the breakdown out and creating the transitions with automation etc, for it to all flow properly.

Everything is also done in real-time with nothing pre-planned, so you get to see the full creation process from sound/sample choice, sound design, progressions, processing, layering, effects & mixing.

Check below for a full in-depth list of everything I go over. This is not an overview! This is every part of the Melody & Breakdown in great detail! 

The video covers:

Creating the melody, progressions, plucks, pads.

Understanding why I have approached the melody and progression the way I have.

Testing musical elements before starting to commit to sounds.

Sound selection & sound design.

Changing keys to see which works best.

Understanding what sounds will work and why for the Hard Trance sound.

Understanding the characteristics of the layers created and how they play their part in the break.

How processing such as distortion can change your sounds for that Hard Trance sound.

Layering the leads and getting them to sit right in the mix so they sound rich and full.

Creating the percussion section & snare transitions etc.

Using automation to help sounds evolve.

Making your counter pluck to work in multiple sections.

The shape, textures, processing and effects of each layer.

Each layer is created in real-time so you can see the full process, including any issues that may arise.

Mixing, EQ, FX, Levelling & Stereo Positioning.

A complete understanding of the thought process behind everything that I do and why.

Hard Trance Melody Breakdown - Absolute Class

I think everytime I leave feedback or message Allan on Instagram or on AM Studio webpage, I've been pretty much been nagging for more hard trance tutorials. Well the wait was definitely worth it!! This tutorial like the hard trance kick and bass tutorials has delivered the goods yet again. Over 3 hrs long with everything you need to create a proper HT melody breakdown with that classic breakbeat sound, plus all the percussion choices, effects and transitions. Outstanding tutorial yet again.
Allan, please make this into a series for all us hard trancers. Nice one
