Frédéric Vauthier on SoundBetter

Hey everyone. My name Is Frederic. I'm really fond in composing music, that's the best thing I can do for you. Whenever you need an Idea, I can create something for you, with a little arrangement in the style that you want. Please contact me !

Greetings, I can speak English, hablo tambien espanol et je parle Francais aussi!

My main purpose is to find a musical idea for you, or complete your idea. Whereas you begin with chords, melody, lyrics, or nothing at all it doesn't matter, I can help you to achieve your song. I am very prolific when to comes to find good ideas, and I can give you ideas 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 Komplete 12 ultimate and Maschine MK3. My principal DAW is Logic Pro X on Mac. I have everything needed here for comping, quantizing, pitch or time stretching and also mixing. So I can help you to solves 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 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 quite something! Then that is what I can offer to you.
