John Wiliams - Theme from Schindler's List (Mockup)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I finished this mockup of one of my favourite soundtracks today. Thought I'd share it with you. It's the main theme from the film Schindler's List composed by John Wiliams. I did it mainly to work on my midi mockup and mixing skills. I aimed for a sound as realistic to a real orchestra as possible. I also tried to make the sound a little "vintage" and not so hyped as you can hear in a lot of today's film music. Hope you'll enjoy. Any feedback is appreciated!

This mockup is amazing. It does sound like a real orchestra to me.

Also, I like that you went for a more true-to-life sound instead of what we now call "cinematic". I think this is a much more pleasing aesthetic to seek.

Great job!

Thank you! 

@Jean Szulc yeah we often like the cinematic sound 'cause it's so fat, wide ande hyped but it's not always the appropriate aesthetic. 

@Luis Hernández I was not perfectly satisfied with the vibrato so I hope to improve that in the future. Regarding reverb, did you think of the solo violin or the section?

Dude i love it. Nothing feels overpowering and it feels mixed and balanced just right. The whole thing feels really high quality, good job! What sound libraries are you using and what are you using for the violin it sounds really great.

Thank you Ben! I used Berlin Woodwinds and Berlin strings. Solo violin from cinestrings solo. Cineharp. 

I used eq, a little bit of compression and tape saturation and a vinyl emulator to make the sound more "vintage". And reverb of course.
