What Students Are Saying About ZERMELO Courses:
Since launching last year, over 485+ students (and growing) have joined and benefitted from ZERMELO's courses and templates. Here are some (hopefully) relatable stories for you:
Zach "Shellz" Sheldon: "I've had a few tracks signed to 4 different labels but there are some things separating me from the big dogs. After going through ZERMELO’s courses, I can already tell the difference in my tracks.
I'm really starting to feel like I'm bringing out the finer details in the mix and I have a much more stable approach to how I'm going to finish the track. I now feel more comfortable sending my tracks to some of the bigger labels, it’s a great feeling!
I still have more to learn and I will continue to use these courses, making a big difference!"
UPDATE: Zach has since scored a top 100 release on Beatport and a feature on Blanc's YouTube channel! And there's more to come, I'm sure!
Ben "Benjermain" Brown: "ZERMELO's course also taught me how to be extremely efficient in the mixing process by introducing me to the “flow stage” - this helped me to know what exactly I needed to do with my track step by step in order to achieve that professional sound.
The track I made directly after watching the course was my favourite track to date and I’ve signed it to my favourite label: Kulture Records and will be out in their ADE sampler."
And I always get emails from students telling me about their incredible results.
Like ANTHONY — who got signed for the first time. He's super stoked! (Sorry...this might be hard to see on your phone.)
And DENNIS — who's killing it right now! There's too much to say here, so check out the email:
UPDATE: Dennis has also scored a release on Mihalis Safras' label Material Series and a feature on Tech It Deep!
What Students are saying about ZERMELO templates:
Arrangement and soundwise, it's the best template so far that i came across. The song sounds smart and elegant; simple but not sparse. It's inspiring that you get this sound with stock plugins and don't rely on buss or master processing to warm up the sound or give it an edge. — Ozan Ülke
I like how simple the template was. It was easy to understand and I was able to quickly work out where the key elements for the track sat and how they worked in the arrangement. — Carl Chestworth
Everything was so balanced and clear. I was impressed by the simplicity of all the channels and plugins used. Still trying to figure out how you got that kick to sounds so fat. 😅 I like organization so the color coding was great. — Jay Morales
I really liked having a visual guide to gain staging all of the different elements of a pro style track, specifically in the low end. This is something I think we all struggle with and this template has made me way more confident in my ability to dial in a quality mix. — James Pires

How is this better than YouTube?
Well...how's YouTube working out for you now? 😉
You're probably no stranger to the dark side of YouTube...
YouTube only offers you random tips -- most of which are conflicting, rambling, incoherent, or unhelpful.
Worse, it doesn't provide a single, clear, unified learning path or step-by-step process for you to follow.
But there are deeper problems...
First --- When teaching yourself music, there are things you NEED to know that you're simply unaware of -- and you can't search for what you don't know, right...?
Second --- You're human. So you're probably searching for the "sexy" tops you WANT to learn rather than the "unsexy" topics you NEED to learn.
(You can't argue with that one.)
Bottom Line: With YouTube, you're just left with hidden gaps in your skill set that hold your music back.
And these are the EXACT problems that the Tech House Production System solves:
- It gives you a coherent production system -- instead of random tips
- It reveals everything you WANT to learn and everything you NEED to learn
- It shows you exactly WHAT to do and WHEN to do it
- It reveals those "hidden" techniques you'd never have discovered on your own
- It saves you years -- or decades -- of trial and error, and endless YouTube searches
Why do the courses focus on PAWSA and Solardo?
The combination of these two courses is powerful because the PAWSA and Solardo sound are popular, but different.
The PAWSA approach — including Michael Bibi, FISHER, Cloonee, and Solid Grooves producers — is minimalistic. You have to get the most out of the small number of sounds and hooks in the arrangement and mix.
The Solardo approach — including Toolroom — is more about creating a rich and layered texture, a strong drive, and a huge bass. The skill I teach you is how to get everything to work together.
Together, you’ll learn what it takes to master two different and far-reaching approaches to making house music.
What happens after I sign up?
After you sign up and complete your payment, you’ll receive an email from "ZERMELO" with your login information for the members area.
You'll be able to access your courses and download your templates inside the members area.
How long to I have access for?
You'll have lifetime access to the your courses and free updates for life.
Unless, of course, you request a refund. Then your course access will be revoked.
Do I need specific plugins to follow along?
No. Ableton's plugins are totally fine.
You’ll see me use different 3rd party plugins but I use them because I used to switch between DAWs (Logic and Ableton) and using 3rd party plugins made switching back and forth easier.
These days (mid 2019), I'm mostly Ableton with a few exceptions:
- LFO Tool from Xfer Records
- Pro Q from Fab Filter
- Pro L from Fab Filter
These plugins are NOT necessary for you to follow along in the course — nor are they necessary for you to achieve a professional sound. I just like them.
What version of Ableton do I need for the templates?
Most of the templates are made in Ableton 10.
So if you have the up-to-date version of Ableton, then you will have no problem.
If you're using Ableton 9, I do have templates for this version, although you will have to purchase them individually — HERE.
Ableton 9 Templates:
What if I don't use Ableton?
If you don't use Ableton, then I don't recommend this package.
I do have a separate Black Friday deal for you.
Just email me at email@example.com if you're interested.
How do I download my templates?
As soon as you purchase, you'll receive an email giving you access to the ZERMELO members area.
Here, you'll be able to download all your templates. And you have unlimited downloads.
You'll find your free bonuses in the members area too:
- Start To Finish - Freaky Shit
- Track Deconstructions & Artist Breakdowns
What if I have a template request?
Future templates are not guaranteed.
The price you paid is reflective of the value of the product at the date of your purchase.
That being said, I do often add templates -- maybe 3 to 4 per year. And you'll get free access to all future templates.
As a member of the Tech House Template Bundle, your template requests are my priority.
Simply request a template anywhere in the members area.
Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please email me with your ZERMELO account email. If you attach your receipt to the email, even better! These are ways to flag the priority of your email!
What if I don't like the courses?
Email email@example.com and request a refund within 60-days of your initial purchase.
No questions. No hassle. No big deal.
What if I don't like the templates?
If you don't like the templates, you have a 60-day money back guarantee.
Just email me with 60 days of your initial purchase and I'll offer you a prompt refund.
Keep in mind that you get to keep the templates after I issue your refund -- but I'll revoke access to the ZERMELO members area.
In so doing, I'm completely reversing the risk from you to me. I lose $319 worth of templates and hundreds of hours of work.
I trust that you'll make an honest purchase -- just as you're trusting me to deliver on my promise to help you make awesome music.
Are the templates royalty free?
The templates are 100% royalty free -- EXCEPT THE VOCALS.
I cannot give you the rights to release copyrighted material. You have to request the right from the copyright holder.
What I'm about to say is NOT legal advice, but rather my interpretation of the "attitude" surrounding sampled material in the electronic music industry:
"It's better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission."
You CANNOT construe this as a license to release copyrighted material. If you choose to act in a way that's consistent with this "attitude" then you do so at your own risk.
Also, it's assumed that you're not going to release the template 'as is'. You need to change the ideas and melodies in the template in a substantial way.
I won't personally "come after you" if you simply release the templates as they are.
However, producers have done this in the past. And the labels that released the track immediately took the track down after receiving emails, messages, and comments from other producers about the track.
I have another question...
Please email any questions you have to:
