Day 7 is here!   I’ve concluded the 7 day song trance tutorial with an explanation of how to mix and master trance music and also put the final 7 day song up for you to listen to!

This has been a slog and a half – the 7 day song ended up having 15 videos (If my A level maths is still up to scratch), but it looks to have been useful so it’s all gravy! :)

Thanks for watching the tutorials, guys!   I’ll keep making them if you keep watching :)

Hope you enjoy it!

Wow, this Trance thing sure does use a lot of techniques!   I’ve had to work like 3 times as hard on this 7 day song since there’s just so much in there!

This time you get to make the track sound more professional with some cool fx, I’ll teach you how to internally route sounds in thor for a cool wooshy noise sound and you’ll get the epic orchestral and choral elements in there too!

PS. Apologies for this going out late – my screen capture software kept being gay!

Here’s a 3 in one for you!   A massive trance lead for those epic breakouts, a plucked trance lead for those buildups and a plinky plonky trance lead for those moments when you just close your eyes and feel the music!

It’s all about those moments :)
