Based in Austin, Texas, Symplesound was founded in 2015 by producer/sound designer Francis Prève, whose design work can be found in many of today's most popular synths and software, including Ableton Live 10, Xfer Serum, Dave Smith’s Prophet X and REV2, Korg Prologue, Korg Gadget, and Propellerhead Reason. Other clients include Roland, iZotope, Avid, and Auxy.
In addition to sound design, Preve’s music production has topped the Beatport charts, thanks to his groundbreaking collaborations with artists like Wolfgang Gartner, Gabriel & Dresden, Matt Lange, Aquaviva/Giacomotto, and Jan van Lier.
It’s this combination of award-winning production and expertise in music technology that defines Symplesound's instruments and libraries.
Preve is also a college professor, which gives him 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 he explains in our blog, Symplesound is the culmination of three decades of experience in every aspect of electronic music – and our products reflect that.
