WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In this course I will guide you through the complete process on how I produce my Techno tracks. We will do it chronologically from Start to Finish and revisit certain parts, exactly how I would do it when I produce. Music production is not always streamlined, but there are patterns and guidelines. I will show you what helped me to finish more tracks and how I improved my workflow and productivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

Do I need to own specific Software / Plugins / Packs?

Nothing is needed for watching the course. If you want to follow along step-by-step, you might need to have specific software installed. You’ll find a section called "Whats required?" on this page, indicating the specific requirements for this course. Make sure you have the mentioned necessary software, packs and plugins installed on your system. Our Harmony Course doesn't require any software. If you're not completely sure, hit us with a quick email.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 48 hours and we will give you a full refund - due to the digital download nature of the optional sound packs, we can only refund the course part. No refund on bulk / pack orders. One refund per person.

How do I access course files, if any are included?

If you're getting the basic course option, a download link will be provided above or below the video of the first or second lecture of the course (usually named 'Setup & Downloads'). In case you're getting the course with one of the pack options, the additional packs will be delivered to you via email.

Where will I be able to log into my course?

The courses are hosted on another server. Once you've bought a course, you'll be getting a mail saying "Redeem your copy of "Course …"". Follow the "Confirm your account" link in that mail and you will end up on the course-platform. There, you'll need to pick your password and log in. Your profile info will be already prepared for you. You can then always log in here:

PML Courses Login.

If you already have a courses account, the new course will be added to your profile (assuming you buy it using the same email address associated with that account). If you have an account but buy a new course using a different email, get in touch and we will manually add it to your existing account.

Can I save money by getting one of the bundles?

Yes absolutely. The offered bundles give the best value by far with an extra discount of at least 30% on the usual shop prices. Including more sound packs, you'll get a perfect start to dive deeper. You'll be able to reverse engineer the project files and discover how to improve your own productions.

His song "Retaliate" got played by no one else than AMELIE LENS, UMEK, and many other top Techno DJs right now.

  • "Hi,
  • I am Johannes, a Berlin born and raised Techno producer.
  • I grew up with all the legendary clubs and parties in the East and West part of town and want to share my knowledge and the Berlin vibes with the whole PML community.
  • Techno is not only music. It is a way of life.
  • Clubs like Berghain, Panorama Bar, Bar 25, Tresor, Watergate, Kater Blau and many more represent this lifestyle - and Berlin is the epicentre of this movement.
  • In my Masterclass I am happy to share a condensed view on how I feel and live Techno. I will unveil my secrets and show you why this is more to me than just music.
  • Welcome!"
