Are you interested in making trance music? The good news is that you don’t need a lot of equipment to make something that will be memorable. So let’s read more about Make Trance Music! We’re going to go over the basic equipment and software you need to get started. Before you know it, you’re going to spinning tracks that you created on your own. If you ever dreamed of being the king of trance music, there’s never been a better time to be a burgeoning musician.

How to Make Trance Music

Here’s a closer look at the specific equipment you’re going to want to have handy if you’re thinking about making trance music. If you’re new to making music, this list is going to be very helpful.

  • Computer – This may or may not be obvious, but you’re going to need a newer computer that has a lot of RAM and storage space. Good speakers so you can hear your creations is another good idea. For storage space, you’ll want to get a hard drive with at least 1 terabyte to store your music files – which can get huge.

  • Sound Card – Speaking of the computer setup you go with, you’ll want to make sure you spend a little extra money to get a decent sound card. Don’t just go with the ones that are included with most computer purchases – especially if you want to make great trance music.

  • Software – If you’re using a PC, you might want to try Ableton Live or Reason, two software music programs that make it easy to get started. If you use a Mac, you’re going to want to try GarageBand or EasyBeat. Whatever you decide to buy, make sure you read all the manuals and directions so that you can get the most out of any software you choose.

  • Instruments – While you can use digital sounds to make your music, it’s going to be a lot better if you have actual instruments to play and record so you can mix them together to make trance music. If nothing else, you’re at least going to want to get an electronic keyboard – a good one – so that you can simulate a lot of different instruments.

As you can see from the list above, you don’t really need a ton of equipment or software in order to make trance music. The biggest thing you need to remember is that you’re going to need to practice. Unless you’re really good, your first musical creations aren’t going to be perfect. However, you should use this as a chance to gradually get better as you practice and make new songs.
