As an undergraduate Berklee student majoring in Film Scoring, the required software listed below will be essential to your success.
The Cubase Pro e365 License is a subscription for one year and includes upgrades during the subscription period. After one year, students need to renew their subscription by purchasing a renewal license from Berklee. If you do not renew the Cubase Pro e365 License Subscription, the Cubase Pro application will not run. You can purchase a one-year license renewal for $99 via the Technology Service Desk (login required).
The Film Scoring Department does not have any hardware requirements.
Upon successfully declaring film scoring as your major, you will receive a bundle of software, which will be billed to your account along with all other college charges, necessary for excellence in modern music composing and scoring, recording, arranging, editing, mixing, and more.

Film scoring students in FS-203 or beyond are required to own all bundle components. Students can only opt out of purchasing bundle components through Berklee by submitting individual receipts for each bundle component for which they are requesting waivers. Please send any receipts or questions to email@example.com.
In addition to the major bundle, students enrolled in FS-203 (Summer 2022) or SCRN-202 will be required to purchase the Berklee Orchestral Tools library separately. You will be prompted to log in using your OnePass credentials.
