What Kinds Of Results Can You Expect?

1146+ Students

With over 1146+ ZERMELO customers, we've seen some amazing results:

  • Finishing or signing a track for the first time...
  • Getting featured on YouTube channels like Blanc, Underground Deep-Tech Station, and more...
  • Gaining support from top DJs like Michael Bibi, Cloonee, Miguel Bastida, Jacky, and more...
  • Signing with top labels like Defected, Dirtybird, Toolroom, Repopulate Mars, and more...

Here's what some top students have to stay:

Zach "Shellz" Sheldon says:

"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!”

UPDATE: Zach has since scored a top 100 release and a feature on the popular Blanc YouTube Channel! And I’m sure there’s a lot more in the works…

Ben "Benjermain" Brown says:

"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 on the 17th of October.”

UPDATE: Ben has since signed a lot more track and has also scored a feature on Blanc’s YouTube channel! Again, with lots more to come…

More Student Love

The difference between my tracks before his course and after his course is insane. — Brad King

After taking ZERMELO’s courses my tracks started to improve, so I sent Techno Snobs song after song then they finally gave me a shot DJing a gig and after that they took me in! 🙂 I’m also the youngest on the team at 20 years old 🙂 They have booked me for a couple gigs so far and it’s been amazing! — Jaden "Daxxin" Sprinz

ZERMELO's courses have helped me develop my productions in a massive way. The lessons are easy to follow and detailed enough that everyone can get something out of it. The thing they've helped with most is definitely my end-to-end production process, and I've been laying ideas down and finishing tracks way faster having used it as a learning tool. Thanks! — Theon Bower

This course is the first course that goes into all the deep details you need to make your track stand out and tells you why you need them (or what to do that's similar)....I used some of the tips and insights to put into new tracks I played at Electric Forest and they crushed! — Sean Little

After downloading all of Zermelo's free material, I then gave a chance for the Solardo course, which just made me finish 2 tracks in a row, that was such an inspiring and motivating material to finish tracks, lots of cool tips to develop your sound, just amazing! — Guto Potter

ZERMELO's course has been instrumental in developing a workflow to arrange a track quickly once the initial idea has been established. [...] ZERMELO's mixing advice has been sound as well (pardon the pun) and allowed me to get my tracks sounding really good on both home systems and clubs. I highly recommend following along through the course. — Laksh Aithani


How is this better than YouTube?

Why do the courses focus on PAWSA and Solardo?

What happens after I sign up?

How long to I have access for?

Do I need specific plugins to follow along?

What version of Ableton do I need for the templates?

What if I don't use Ableton?

What if I don't like the courses?

Are the templates royalty free?
