In this video I show you the entire arrangement of my trance track "Spirit Within You."

The video explains:
* The intro
* How all instruments are introduced
* How transforming sounds are achieved
* How to build up the tension
* Adding a classic atmospheric trance breakdown
* Culmination of the track
* The outro

You may need to watch this video a few times because it'll go through some things fairly fast to keep the length of the video down. You can pause and look at the arrangement and see when certain instruments are playing, how they are introduced and manipulated.

I also suggest that you have a look at my video "How to make trance tutorial" because it focuses on the busiest of the 15 measures of the tracks and explains in detail what notes are played, what VST instruments that were used, and even which preset was used for every instrument.

The track in this tutorial video is "Spirit Within You" - it's available on http://www.imphenzia.com in 4 versions (original, chill out, club, and piano.) If you like my music and if you find this tutorial helpful - please consider buying one of my albums (on imphenzia.com or in digital stores like iTunes). You can also support imphenzia with the Full Access feature that gives you access to high quality 320kbps MP3 files and FLAC files when contributing an amount of your choice.

I use Cubase 5 and virtual instruments (VSTi) such Nexus, VanGuard, Sylenth1 - but the arrangement technique is universal to any music making software.

I also want to point out the following:
* This is NOT a club / DJ-friendly song - they have a steady beat intro and outro to simplify the job for the DJ to mix with other tracks. The reason why I rarely have DJ intros is that my music is generally listened to by Internet fans and not played in clubs.
* This is an EXAMPLE of a trance arrangement - it's how I arrange and it's not following any rules, just what I feel works well =)
