Based in Austin, Texas, Symplesound was founded in 2015 by producer/sound designer Francis Prève – best known for his groundbreaking collaborations with artists like Wolfgang Gartner, Gabriel & Dresden, Matt Lange, Aquaviva/Giacomotto, and Jan van Lier – with the intent to create an entirely new approach to sample libraries and preset collections.
As one of the tech industry's most in-demand sound designers for over a decade, Preve has created hundreds of presets for products from Ableton, Korg, Xfer Records, Dave Smith Instruments, Propellerhead, Roland, iZotope, Avid, and Auxy.
It’s this combination of award-winning production and expertise in music technology that defines Symplesound's instruments and libraries for Ableton Live and Push.
In addition, Preve’s work as a college professor provides insight into how musicians of all skill levels actually use synthesizers, while his career as a technology journalist gives him a deep appreciation for what makes a genuinely great product.
As Preve explains in our blog, Symplesound is the culmination of three decades of experience in every aspect of electronic music – and our products reflect that.
