Soul&Jazzy Composer/Arranger

Frédéric Vauthier on SoundBetter

I will make it a full song for you from A to Z. I am a composer/ arranger and I got skills, experience and gear. Whereas you got any lyrical idea, or a small top line in your head, whereas you got some chords progression ideas, or any theme or genre you want to dive in, I am here to help. I can also mix your music and edit/ correct your tracks.

Any musical idea? I will complete it. No idea? I can create it for you. Whereas you begin with chords, melody, lyrics, or nothing at all it doesn't matter, I can help you here to achieve your song. I am very prolific when to comes to find good ideas, and I can give you the thing that will inspire you. But wait, that's not all.

I am also good at arranging, editing, and I own here the good tools to make it right. I'm working with some fine UAD plugins, compose on Komplete 12 ultimate and Maschine MK3 for making my beats. My principal DAW is Logic Pro X on Mac. I have what you need for comping, quantizing, pitch or time stretching and also mixing. So I can help you to solves all the small details.

If you need an arrangement, I play piano and I have access to a great variety of sounds via my vstis and sample banks. I work with Splice, Eastwest, Kontakt and Komplete from Native Intsruments. I am also working with Arturia, Vienna symphonic Library and I update my gear every month with some new goodies.

I can make the whole picture sounds pretty good, but feel free to refine the very last details of your song afterwards, with other specialists. Having the whole song, being able to press the play button and hear everything from the start to the end with the musical model is a real pleasure! Let's collaborate, let's make music together.
