Layering isn’t just a case of stacking a bunch of sounds on top of each other and hoping it sounds bigger and better. Doing this will only create more mixing issues and can cause sounds to cancel each other out. We don’t want that.
We want layering done correctly, whether that’s layering your Trance leads, Percussion or Bass line, so that when done correctly you will transform your track from an amateur sound to a professional one while also adding heaps of depth to your mix.
Those label A&Rs will hear if your track is lacking depth and is appropriately layered. So it’s your call on if you want to minimise those rejection emails.
The methods and techniques taught in this in-depth Trance tutorial changed my whole way of mixing and massively improved my overall sound. You will be kicking yourself once you watch this wondering why you never thought of it.

Another great tutorial from Allan Morrow Studios which is very informative and helpful not only for a seasoned pro but for a beginner as well.
Keep inspiring the world over!!!
The techniques presented here resulted in me producing a beautiful lead patch, something I could never have done before. This tutorial teaches you how to make your sounds 3D. Bass, leads, pads, percussion, all packed into a relatively short time frame. Grab it.
I've dealt with Allan on a personal level and his professionalism that he brings to his videos and tutorials are the same level you can expect from his videos. Having said that, Allan is a real pro when it comes to music production. His techniques you will not find elsewhere. However, I would recommend watching Allan's videos and other highly acclaimed producers' videos because you see different ways to accomplish the same goals. I would recommend Allan to anyone who is serious about upping their production game
