How to Create Cinematic Music with Video Copilot Pro Scores
Video Copilot Pro Scores is a collection of professional music and sound elements for creating powerful soundtracks and scores for TV, film, gaming and more. It includes over 50 full length musical tracks, hundreds of music design elements, 5 tutorials and 5 soundtrack templates. In this article, we will show you how to use Video Copilot Pro Scores to create cinematic music for your projects.
Step 1: Choose a Music Track
Pro Scores offers a variety of music tracks that can be customized to fit your project's mood and style. You can browse the tracks by category, such as Action, Horror, Suspense, etc. Each track comes with a preview and a description of its tempo, length and key elements. You can also use the search function to find tracks by keywords.
Once you find a track that suits your needs, you can download it as a WAV file (24-bit/44.1kHz) and import it into your audio editing application. Pro Scores is compatible with most audio applications, such as Logic, Cubase, Premiere, Vegas and Final Cut Pro.
Step 2: Customize the Music Track
One of the great features of Pro Scores is that it provides layered versions of some of the music tracks, especially the more complex ones. This means that you can access the individual components of the track, such as percussion, orchestra, choir, etc. and mix them according to your preference. You can also mute or solo any layer, adjust the volume and pan, add effects and transitions, and create your own variations.
To access the layered versions of the music tracks, you need to download them separately from the main track. They are located in the same folder as the main track, but with an "_L" suffix. For example, if you download the track "Massive_01", you will also find "Massive_01_L" in the same folder. The layered tracks are also WAV files that can be imported into your audio editing application.
Step 3: Add Music Design Elements
Pro Scores also gives you a variety of music design elements that can be used to enhance the cinematic quality of your music track. These include atmospheres, strings, drums, crescendos, hits and more. You can use these elements to create tension, drama, suspense and emotion in your soundtrack.
To use the music design elements, you need to download them from the Pro Scores website. They are organized by category and subcategory, such as Tension Building FX > Atmospheres > Dark & Mysterious. Each element comes with a preview and a description of its length and key features. You can also use the search function to find elements by keywords.
Once you download an element, you can import it into your audio editing application and place it on a separate track. You can then adjust its position, volume and pan to match your music track. You can also layer multiple elements to create more complex sounds.
Step 4: Learn from Tutorials and Templates
If you need some inspiration or guidance on how to use Pro Scores effectively, you can watch the 5 in-depth tutorials that are included in the product. The tutorials cover topics such as mixing techniques, creating custom soundtracks, building tension and drama, using sound design elements and more. The tutorials are available on the Pro Scores website and on YouTube.
You can also use the 5 layered soundtrack templates that are included in the product. These are pre-made soundtracks that use Pro Scores music tracks and elements to create cinematic moods for different genres and scenarios. You can download the templates as ZIP files that contain all the WAV files and project files for After Effects. You can then open them in After Effects or your audio editing application and see how they are constructed and customized.
Step 5: Export Your Cinematic Music
Once you are happy with your cinematic music creation, you can export it as a WAV file or any other format that your audio editing application supports. You can then use it for your video project or any other purpose. Pro Scores is completely royalty-free for use in any production big or small.
