Here are just some of our customers testimonials.
"I'm a subscriber of ADSR courses (should cancel my subscription), have taken courses from Groove3, Sonic Academy and many others. Honestly - nothing is close to DMP. Others might have better video cutters, better post production and a nicer design - but when it comes to the content, nothing beats the DMP courses. And I think it has to do with the attitude. Many courses out there are made by ex-students who just repeat what they've learned while studying. It ends up being a step-by-step instruction of "how you can do what I did".
DMP on the other side is different. The goal is not to make the viewer produce the same boring track. It's not about showing him how some tools work. It's about reading between the lines, about transmitting the ideas behind the work Rick does. And he does it really well. Other tutorials are made like if someone filmed a class in a school; the DMP courses are made if you've just joined a producer in the studio and have a nice talk. And - honestly, that's just what you can learn the most from. I've learned most of the technical stuff I know from my study, but the creative stuff all comes from talking, watching the process, asking questions and finding my own answers. It's what many other tutorials miss. DMP transfer the idea, not only the instructions." - FromBerlinWithLove
"DMP has completely revolutionised the way I think about and make music. In under 12 months I’ve had 8 tunes signed up and had tracks played out by the likes of Hernan Catteneo and Guy Mantzer. This stuff is the f*cking nuts" - Richard Bailey
"I’ve been trying to get signed for 2 years, after watching lots of videos and reading a couple of books my skills did not improve rather declined because I got confused by all those commercial videos and books which just wasted my money and time.
Then by accident I saw DMM 2nd edition on web and I bought it, after reading it i bought 5 tutorials. I bought all the tools you used, I opened my sequencer and made 2 tracks. I sent them to the record label which didn’t even answer me before for my previouse demos, they answered in less than 24hours, they were so surprised they couldn't believe I was a newcomer, they signed me for my release plus 3 of my future releases with a good royalty fee and 50 percent of all the earnings." - Majid.R
"Deep house tutorial is rich, including materials. You will find Gigas of How to and techniques from scratch to the arrangement. DMP know their job. Techno tutorial is a piece of art on how a single bar can be optimized. The reverb tutorial and delay also a must without counting the fundamentals, creative juices." - Adrien.T
"The tutorials that I have purchased are of an incredible quality and I would like to thank you for putting these tutorials together. I am currently studying music production at university and am finding that some of the concepts that are covered in your tutorials have not been taught that well in our lectures.
I am a subscriber to Macpro video.com and also whilst I find that there are one or two OK tutorials on there, the vast majority turn out to be very vague, a bit of a waste of valuable time and they don't go in to the level of detail that your tutorials delve in to. I stumbled across your website and after seeing some example clips and checking over the testimonials I decided to take a gamble on them because higher education, despite the now increased tuition fees, is not giving me the full picture and I am beginning to feel very short changed for the time, money and investment that I have already put in to learning about this stuff.
Your EQ and compression sessions that I have studied so far have really helped me to comprehend these tools immensely and have certainly been well worth the money spent. Every tutorial that I watch has to be beneficial, every penny has to count and thankfully so far, your tutorials have proved to be well worth it. I look forward to your future releases and am especially interested in getting my hands on the dimensional mixing tutorial when it becomes available. You have a fantastic way of explaining some of the complex principles and theories behind music production and sound engineering, simplifying them enough for someone like me to be able to grasp, understand and apply them in my own situations, so again many thanks!" - Alex.P
"DMP filled in all the blanks, shed light on everything I was missing, took me from “impatient and eager”, to more “relaxed and chilled”, paying attention to details, making the very best of my ideas, always second guessing, thinking of ways to make things better or more exciting. I got rid of my readophobia, all thanks to DMP, now I’m always reading, experimenting, getting a better grasp of things, DMP’s made a significant impact in my life, I sound like I’m on Oprah , all jokes aside, I’d still be lost production wise if it weren’t for DMP, and for that I’m grateful, it’s opened paths for me music wise and given me a hunger for knowledge, I’m looking forward to the road ahead, bumpy or smooth as it may be." - Spill
"…That to me is a sign of a real master class – top notch highly non-trivial knowledge explained extremely well that even I can understand it – combined with a great deal of humor. Everyone who is in learning theory or psychology will confirm that there is no better way for the brain to learn complex things. If a teacher can’t explain a topic well – then there is one single reason – because the teacher hasn’t understood it really himself.
I have seen this brilliant teaching style once – when I was reading the outstanding Richard P. Feynman Lectures on Physics during my university years – a lecture series dating back to the 1960s which has changed the way physics should be taught forever – and which is still on top of the reading list of every serious freshman in physics. Rick is in that league." - Trance Dreamer
"In my opinion this tutorial has been one of the greatest learning experiences I have ever had." - tcs439
"I just wanted to say thank you so much!!! As an in the box kind of guy this answered all the questions I had plus some. Seriously, this is great now I'm confident recording vocals and setting up treatment." - Mario.R
"I bought the DDM 1st edition & then joined the forum, waited a long time for the first tutorials to be produced but they were more than worth te wait. I am nowhere near pro standard ut with Ricks teachings I am more advanced than I ever could have been doing things on my own. The amount of time and effort put into the tutorials is far superior to anything else I’ve ever came across, Rick & the DMP team deserve so much credit & praise for this." - Bru
"I just have to say this for any one who don't own any of the DVD Production courses!! I orderd the Fundamental 1 and 2 (drums and bass) DVD discs recently (South Africa). Before I bought them I read the reviews by some clients and its true what they say. Its like sitting in on the projects with the pros! This is exactly what I was searching for, the only one problem I have is that I discovered it so late in my life!! Cant wait to get them all!! If and when I make my mark with Trance, I could only say, THANKS RICK SNOMAN and everyone who were involved!!!" - Ferdinand
"For anyone wondering whether or not this tutorial is for you, or if it is worth the price. Let me tell you that you will not find quality of this caliber anywhere else." - tcs439
"The tutorials are wicked and I'd like to thank the DMP team for putting these together and especially to Rick for presenting the techniques in a unique style that is streets ahead of any other tutorials that I’ve ever watched! I’ve been learning from friends, searching the internet and reading books about dance music production for a few years now but I’ve never really progressed at a great rate.
That’s until the tutorials from DMP were delivered to my door. I just happened to come across the first edition DMP manual that I bought years ago and realised that there was a website associated with the book. At first, I wasn’t expecting anything exciting. So I checked it out, noticed the shop, read the testimonials on the tutorials and decided to take the risk and part with my hard earned cash instead of buying that new synth.
Wow! They’re the best investment I could’ve ever made! I’m so glad I took the time to go to the website. I was sceptical at first and I’d thought I’d taken a pricey gamble, but that initial anxiety couldn’t be further from the truth. So thanks again guys and keep up the great work!" - Strawberry
"This tutorial is an invaluable source of information for any beginner or a pro. It has helped me A LOT in understanding now to properly arrange Trance music. It might be strange but “The Ideas” chapter was the most valuable to me, as I simply didn’t know where to start. I feel I will be going over and over it again. But there’s one thing for sure, there simply no other place where I can get this information from!" - DJ.Shocker
"I joined DMP in March last year (I think) bought most of the tutorials and not looked back. DMP has completely revolutionised the way I think about and make music. Not only do have vastly better technical skills but my creativity has been ignited. I now control my equipment, not the other way round. This stuff is the f*cking nuts." - Richard.B
"I would like to take the time as well to thank rick and his crew for putting out these AMAZING tutorials!" - Badass
"I so much agree to all what you guys have said here. I once posted here that what the nobel prize laureate Richard P Feynman did to take teaching physics to a whole new level Rick is doing for taking teaching production techniques to a complete new level." - Trance Dreamer
“I finished watching the bass fundamental tutorial and I just had to sign up to say how grateful I am to have the privilege to watch these videos! I’ve seen the synthesis and drum tutorials as well and I can really hear how much I’ve been improving. I graduated from university with a degree in music theory. I’ve yet to explore the harmony and melody tutorials (which I have right next to me) but the way master Snoman explains theory so far is really efficient and intuitive.” - Iron Blue
“I wanted to take a minute and express my appreciation. I just finished the DMP Fundamentals Pack (with a minor break to sneak in Sessions 2). Without delving to deep into my frustration of being a producer-hobbyist, I’ve put in a great deal of effort toward understanding music. To gain and seek this understanding (before finding DMP), I subscribed to forum boards, committed countless hours to web research, purchased an expensive magazine subscription, and of course read the DMM front to back (practically twice). I was at the end of rope, with no where else to turn.
Then one Sunday, I honestly don’t known what I Googled, but I found DMP. The tutorials are more than just tutorials to me. They are full of knowledge. At times, they are humorous. And most of all, they inspiring. That being said…thank you Rick and DMP crew for doing what you all have decided to do.” - Suspect
“Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you for all the work and information you have shared throughout the tutorial series. Each has been easy to follow and the results to my production levels have noticeably grown, so much that I was asked to remix a track for a label and they have accepted it!” - Nifty
“After watching Fundamentals 1-4 and the Trance tutorial, I have to say that all of the testimonials are really spot on. The one thing I can add is that these tutorials really demystify the entire process. Making professional tunes takes a lot of time and effort to get right, and there is no magic bullet for anything. I’ve watched several of the “In the Studio” videos and they are not much help. They give you the false impression that the track was whipped up like some kind of instant pudding, and that the producers are just dragging and dropping elements in with ease. I’ve learned that professional productions are all about the little details most people take for granted. I used to approach think of minute improvement as a form of failure, but seeing the videos helped me learn that a whole bunch of gradual improvements and attention to detail can make a big difference in the end.” - Beatflux
