From listening to the last day of class, I've learned a lot about the genres of electronic music. I've learned about the process that goes into creating electronic music and the principles behind creating synthesizers and drum beats and the like. I've learned about the endless amount of effects that are added to instruments like flanging and compression and reverb and EQing.
