This week proudly welcomes back Swedish born 138 Trance legend Bjorn Akesson for a brand new course in How To Make Tech Trance. We’re also excited as for the first time here at Sonic Academy this awesome monster of a track is created in Presonus Studio One. Bjorn builds this entirely new tune from the ground up starting with a blank slate firstly creating the drums before moving on to the layered sub and mid bass. We then arrange the basic layout to give the foundation of the track before adding effects, creating the drop and main theme, adding atmosphere, along with a dope acid line and stabs. Throughout this course we check out Bjorn’s easy-to-follow, methodical approach to workflow and organisation along with his clever use of automation lines to create tension and move through the transitions of the breakdown and drop.
The end result is a 138 Tech Trance track worthy of any club that’s guaranteed to get your heart racing!
And don’t worry if you don’t use Studio One, this course and the resources included are designed to be followed and used in any DAW so what are you waiting for?
Go check it out and learn from a true Trance master!
