The definitive guide to produce orchestral mockups

Confidently orchestrate, mix & master your music. Produce professional sounding orchestral mockups.

Become efficient at composing. Imagine musical ideas and produce them quickly with samples, without the overwhelming, paralyzing, “what-sample-should-I-load-for-this-to-sound-realistic?” feeling…  even if you’re starting from scratch.

Learn the synthestration techniques that will make your samples sound like the real orchestra. 
Set up your perfect orchestral template, that will make you stay in the creative flow and be efficient at producing orchestral mockups.

Learn the mixing techniques that apply to orchestral music and that will make your music sound clear and gain definition, especially for those trailer, epic arrangements, where you need a punchy, solid, cinematic sound.

Finally, discover the mastering tools that actually make a difference in orchestral arrangements. Set up an efficient go-to mastering chain so that your orchestral music traduces well in any playback system.

What is inside SVO


The system behind this course has been perfected over the last 9 years, ever since I started using orchestral samples.

You’ll learn specific steps and exact professional techniques, such as how to pick the right patches and mix samples.

You’ll not only know what you’re doing, but you’ll also know exactly HOW to do it. This is your practical guide.


BONUS

3 Grammys


Clint Eastwood, Tim Burton, Brian Tyler, etc.

The course includes a masterclass with Bobby Fernandez. You’ll have a chance to speak directly with him and ask mixing questions.

*Included in the PRO and EXPERT versions of the course

Masterclass with Christopher Young*


Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell, The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Ok, now you know how to produce professional sounding orchestral mockups. Now what?

Connect with Chris in a 1-hour live video-chat where he’ll answer your questions and give you advice on how to get started in the industry as a film composer.


Weekly live video-chats

Every week, we’re hosting a live video-chat, where we gather to talk about orchestration, sample libraries, templates, composing techniques, etc.

This is a great tool that allows us to meet each other and makes the online experience more alive.

All chats are recorded so you can watch them later if you can’t attend the session.


And to make sure you’ve got continued support

 

The private Symphonic Virtual Orchestration group


A Facebook group of ambitious composers committed to building their mockup production skills. We are a tight-knit bunch who constantly encourage each other and help strategize our unique situations in a safe and positive environment.
 
The Facebook group is a great place to ask questions if you get stuck. It’s where you’ll get lots of extra help and encouragement, especially from other composers who can speak to your exact issues.

Use this private Facebook group to: 

  • Brainstorm with hundreds of other experienced musicians who are on the same journey 
  • Troubleshoot any problem, big or small, and get answers quickly 
  • Ask for feedback on your music, mixes, and projects 
  • Create lasting friendships (and collaborations?) with people just like you!

The Symphonic Virtual Orchestration Course

Your strategic step-by-step action plan to help you
Compose, Arrange, Mix, and Master your orchestral music
and produce professional-sounding midi mockups.


Join today and...

#1 – You’ll become an expert at the fundamentals of synthestration, and will learn how to make your mockups sound outstanding.

#2 – You’ll discover the power of effective templates. You’ll learn about big vs. modular templates and will build your own template, which will almost guarantee you the best results right from the start. 

#3 – You’ll discover the Go-To synthestration techniques (also referred to as arranging for samples), and how these techniques differ from traditional orchestration. You’ll save tons of time and boost your production abilities, making your orchestral music sound stellar. 

These techniques apply across the board, no matter what sample libraries you’re using. 

#4 – You’ll discover the mixing secrets that apply to orchestral music. These include secrets I’ve learned personally from top mixing engineers that I’ve had the privilege of meeting after years working in the industry. Now I’ll be sharing them with you, so you don’t have to spend hundreds of frustrating hours reading mixing books, visiting forums, or buying tutorials, and then trying to decide which techniques actually work with orchestral music. 

This module includes one section about the secrets of Mastering orchestral music so that your music sounds great no matter what system, speakers, or headphones are used for the playback. 

#5 – In the “Pro” version of this course, you’ll have access to 4 amazing case studies where you’ll see behind the scenes as I produce 4 tracks in totally different styles. 

The case studies include insights and tips for the following styles: 

  • Trailer emotional orchestral 
  • Action, high intensity 
  • Romantic, love 
  • Thriller, mystery 

#6 – In the “Expert” version of the course, you’ll even get a chance to sit down with me, live, one-on-one on Skype for 1 hour to walk through and review your template, so you end up with the most effective setup. If there’s time, I’ll also review one of your tracks so that you know for sure that you understood the course lessons and applied them the right way. 

As a bonus, you will get one extra one-on-one coaching call with a Class A film or video game composer based in Hollywood and actively working in the industry.

What our students say about the course

William – February 15, 2017:

Either if you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, Cinematic Composing is a great place to build on that knowledge and continue learning about music production.

Alan – May 17, 2017:

If you’ve been looking for real world, workable answers and solutions on how to setup and structure an effective film composition recording and production environment this is the course for you. The modern composer has to fill many roles beyond just coming up with the music. You’re also expected to provide score mockups, be the arranger, music editor, sound designer and pretty much anything else that involves the music side of a movie or TV show. Marc Jovani cuts to the chase on setting up workable templating, the pros and cons of many popular sound libraries, best practices for mixing and mastering along with tips on how to handle the variety and complexity of requests you will encounter this business. Marc’s passion for film scoring is only surpassed by his desire to educate both aspiring and established composers to be the best and most competitive music professionals they can be.

Medhat – March 05, 2017:

Whether it’s a film, TV show, video game or music production, the information you will learn in this class is very valuable and will be useful for the rest of your career.

Steve – March 17, 2017:

These courses have been a fantastic experience thus far. I'm already learning more than I ever could. It's far superior than just searching for online tuts. This course is all a hit!

Thomas – July 17, 2017:

I am only into day 2, I am so impressed! The chat/interactive video chat, the assignments, and the customer service is WAY more than I thought this experience was going to be.

How long will it take me to get through the course?

Week one starts with module one. Every week opens a new module. The course takes 8-10 weeks if you’re doing one week per module.

Can I get behind? Do I have to follow the course’s pace or can I go my own?

You can take as long as you want to complete the course. You can go at your own pace or follow the course’s schedule of approximately 8-10 weeks. Whatever you choose, the materials are always there and you can submit the assignments whenever you want. They will always get reviewed, no matter how late you submit them.

The course materials do not expire and you’ll have access to them for life, including future course updates and improvements!

How long will I have access to the course materials?

You’ll have access to the course materials for life, as well as to the Facebook group AND the weekly chats included in you course. You can join any weekly chat that you want, even if your course has finished. And the chat sessions are recorded, so you can watch them at any time.

I have a busy life. Will I have the time to do this?

You can’t get behind in this course. Even though we go through a new module every week, it’s there for you whenever you’re ready and is accessible on any mobile device.

How much time per week is necessary if I want to follow your schedule?

It depends on the week. Some weeks you’ll be done in 50 minutes, some weeks you’ll have to spend some hours.

Also, if you decide to do the assignments (which we encourage since it’s the best way to learn), then it’s going to take a bit longer since you’ll be producing an orchestral cue that will be reviewed.

But if you’re late submitting an assignment, that’s ok. Your teacher will always review the assignments, no matter when you submit them, even if you’re done sometime after the course closes. This course is designed to accommodate your personal and professional life, allowing you to use the course materials and do the assignments when you can while allowing you to keep the course materials forever.

I cannot read music and have never taken orchestration classes or anything like that. I have learned everything by ear. Will I still be able to successfully complete the course?

Honestly, we have lots of fun and engaging conversations with students who don’t have formal training. Sometimes, when you’ve got a lot of training you can develop complexes or insecurities about what is right or wrong, what you should or shouldn’t do when composing, and so forth.

If you’re one of those with little or no traditional formal training, you’ll still gain loads of practical, useful information and experience in this course. We’d love to have you on board!

Do you have a refund policy?

Yes. We are giving you a full 30 DAYS to go through the training, do the assignments, implement what you learn, and watch your production skills begin to grow.

If you reach out within 30 days to show us that you’ve kept up with all the work (you have to show us proof!*), and for some reason still haven’t seen any progress, then we’ll be happy to return the investment.

*Conditions apply. Please read Terms and conditions.
