I want to make trance music...
I know this is extremely generic, but I have looked, and it seems everyone knows more than me, so this is where I am...
I want to make techno/trance, and I'm extremely confused (total n00b). If anyone could even begin to answer these questions I would be greatly appreciated, as nobody I know makes music and Oklahoma is in the backwater of the USA, it would be my first drop of knowledge...
1) How do I get started making trance music?
2) Do I have to learn any music theory? (Be honest)
3) How do I eventually get to the quality that I hear from artists such as Paul Van Dyke, BT, Push and others? What am I facing here? Do I have to go record at a label?
Any answers will suffice...The frustration of coming up with songs but not being able to produce them is driving me insane.:confused:
