Hear what the community says about PML
We are very happy and don’t take it for granted to have such a great community spread across all these different channels. We love how you guys help each other out, review tracks and release killer tracks. Let’s hear from some of you.
Johannes Menzel - Techno Producer from Berlin Germany His song "Retaliate" got played by no one else than AMELIE LENS, UMEK, and many other top Techno DJs right now.
"When I heard the samples from the Deep Premium Pack II back in the day I was instantly hooked and knew I have never heard better sounding and better fitting drum samples for the sound I wanted to do, but could not quite get together. After I bought the first samples I fell in love with some synth presets, before I took all classes on sound design to make my own sounds. In the meantime we started cooperating and I have access to all sounds and samples (which is great), but I also contribute a lot of templates and samples myself. I am very happy for the opportunity to present my sounds to the big PML community and hope everybody out there now feel about my packs how I once felt."
“Hope you are doing well. I just finished your intro course on PML and the lesson was just great. I spent over 1000€ about 2 years ago at “XXX” and I came out with nothing. With 50€ that I paid for the course on PML I have 2 finished tracks within 2 days, something I have been trying to do for years. Thank you!”
“For anyone wondering if buying the full PML package is worth it.. It is!! Incredible. You guys are the best. Thanks!”
“Bought the full bundle. Never bought anything before, but decided to widen/deepen my Ableton horizons, especially in more melodic techno styles. The courses are really STEP BY STEP. Looked everywhere to get me started in this genre: only PML offers it. I’m not being sponsored or anything: it’s worth every dollar as inspiration (and “Savoir faire”) is paramount.”

Tracks Made with These Packs
Producer (Radikon)On Organica:

Producer & Live Act (Stil vor Talent, YION)On Organica:
“When I produce a new track I spend hours recording little fillers and organic grooves or phrases that make a song unique. With Organica you have a professionally recorded and great sounding library of natural sounds at your fingertips. Congrats to my friends Yannek & Brascon for this great sound pack!”
Producer & DJOn Nils Hoffmann Production Pack:
“This is a very versatile pack that is not only limited to producing melodic techno - as you can hear in my demo track. The pack contains a lot of original samples & Diva presets you know from Nils last album plus 2 fully arranged Ableton project files. Go check it out!”
Bound to Divide
Producer & PML TutorOn Nils Hoffmann Production Pack:
“Very organic sounds and full of character. I especially got a ton of use out of the hat loops and Diva bass patches and I am sure you will, too. Overall great pack to make rich and full sounding Melodic House tunes!”
Singer & ProducerOn Nils Hoffmann Production Pack:
“I really enjoyed working with this pack and accidentally produced this demo track 100% from presets & samples from the pack - I just recorded some vocals and was done super quick. This collection is a real time saver!”
Techno producer (drumcode, wave)On Percussive Afro House:
“This pack is super versatile and crosses many genres. I usually produce harder techno, but there is a lot I can use in here. Go check it out!”
Yannek Maunz & Brascon
