Learn how to make this Progressive Trance track…

 

Welcome to the Progressive Trance Start To Finish Production Course

Want to learn how to make professional-sounding Progressive Trance but don’t know where to start? Are Youtube tutorials not giving you the answers you want? Tired of your tracks not sounding good next to the pros?

It’s all here in this 14.5+ hour course where I will go over everything from the ground up! You will see my full creative process, and learn my full thought process behind every sound that is designed or chosen in real-time.

Why is this course different?

Nothing is pre-planned so that you get to see everything that works and doesn’t (just like when you are in the studio). This allows you to learn from each step of the process.

There are no pre-planned sounds that just fall into place so that you can understand why something is working, and why it’s not. This provides a much better learning experience for you when you then come to tackle issues that you face when producing your tracks.

My goal with every tutorial is to give as much detail as possible (hence why it’s 14.5+ hours) and not just quickly skim over parts. See below for a full list of the subjects that are covered (full page description links included also)

8 x Episodes  [Duration 14.5+ hours]

14.5+ Hours for a reason.

Unlike other courses that may show you a full track in just a few hours, this course goes through the full track and thought process behind every decision in extreme detail. The thought process of why something is done is one of the most vital bits of information. Nothing is just skimmed over and I believe in this course you truly get what you pay for.

Essential help for Mixdowns

I would recommend this tutorial series to every producer, mix downs can be a highly complicated process, this series takes the anxiety and guess work out of the equation. Its very difficult to remember every single part of what is expected of us during a mix down. The to do list that Allan provides with the mixdown guides, is a genius way of checking off all the nitty gritty things that can go wrong with a mix down. Allans explanations during the videos, helps give real world examples of the issues that arise in a mixdown- phase issues, etc, and the solutions for those problems. A brilliant series, dont hesitate on getting this, do yourself a favour, thank me later.

The most detailed tutorial about automation.

I'm really glad I found this tutorial, because this is the most detailed and well explained tutorial about automation I've seen online. And I suffered enough trying to understand automation from youtube channels and still I was not there. Allan explains everything really good and easy to understand. A great tutorial in depth, really recommended! Knowledge is priceless.
And special thanks to Allan , who helped me a lot with my download issues in a short time.

Best Automation Tutorial Yet

Not sure if it is because of the style being made, but this has for me been the best automation tutorial on the site to date. Something about the pace of this and the simplicity to get the desired results just clicked! Really well explained in great detail of loads of new information and pointers. The boss has done it again. Really loving this series a lot.
