Terminator Theme cover


Author Comments

In time for the release of Terminator Genisys, I made a cover of the classic Terminator theme.

Original music by Brad Fiedel.

I was gonna make a cover for the Terminator theme but nothing came to mind really :/ Regardless this is amazing! The start got me started up but then it suddenly just made me say why did it just go blank at mid structure. Finally epicness returned and I started to melt at how good this came out. The synths and strings are just phenomenal and just so much effort was put to make this. Don't know why you don't have a lot of plays on this it came out as expected. I'll be a fan of yours ;P You got my attention hehe ^.^ Oh god I'm doing it again aint I lol XD I should stop talking. Good work :O

Brilliant Jacob, as always :)

Thanks rugly! =)

Great sounds! What do you use as your sample library? Whatever it is, I should probably invest in it.

Jakey-San responds:

Thank you! I used a multitude of libraries - CineSamples, ProjectSAM, East West to name a few, as well as synth sounds from Omnisphere and Zebra.

Gave me chills at 1:07! Epic track! wish the the hits in the beginning were a bit more bass centered like in the movie and maybe the trombone at the beggining could have some kind of bass instrument reinforcing it but besides that everything was amazing in this. Keep making music buddy!
Oh and If you like trance/house check out my awesome new song :3

Jakey-San responds:

Thanks for the feedback! I see what you mean about the drums. What happened was that I started out with a lot of low end, but I may have stacked on too many layers and the compression squashed/drowned out the lows. Definitely something I'll keep track of in the future.
