My tribute to Pirates of the Caribbean

Recommended Posts

Hello composer friends ! 

A friend of mine challenged me to make a cover of Pirates of the Caribbean, but I didn't want to limit myself to the main theme "He's a pirate" haha

So here is my tribute to the amazing soundtrack of Pirates of the Caribbean, in whitch I put some of my ideas. This was my biggest work so far ! Hope you will like it !

Feel free to give any feedback about the mixing or the arrangement ! 🙂 

Happy new year to all !

Melodically, rhythmically, stylistically - you've done a fabulous job! Any way for you to add in some more soloistic instruments, particularly in the strings/woodwinds/brass?  Even if they just get layered in top of the existing ensemble sounds, it'd make a huge difference, I think, in matching the cover sound to the original sound.I'm not familiar with the DAW you're using (looks like FL studio to me...? Based on the video at the beginning), so I have no idea if that'd be a huge step. Your own original ideas are good as well! With your vocal sounds, I'd alter the vowel shape to an "ah" more often, if possible. Great job with the Davy Jones' lullaby theme!!!!!! Find spots to bring the percussion up in the mix, as well as moments when all sounds could be more "attacked" and articulated.

A very good cover! Can't wait to hear more!

Fantastic!!! Very convincing! This must have taken you a very long time to do. Bet you had many sleepless nights. I’m assuming this was all done with virtual instruments and if so, those are some incredible samples! The mix and arrangement are world class. The reverb is wonderful and really makes it sound like a live performance. Just incredible! I hope you are trying to get the attention of people that could use your talents. This is a level of proficiency that few command. Great work!

Thank you so much for your comment Gustav ! 

I don't have solo library for woodwinds nor brass yet, but I think you are right, it could stenghen the melodie ! It's absolutely not a huge step, I just got to find good libraries that I can afford, but I' going to wait a bit more to buy new libraries. The ones I already have almost cost me an arm haha ! 😛
