Francis Preve is a sound designer, journalist, and educator. He teaches synthesis and sound design at Austin Community College. Francis is one of the most in-demand synthesizer programmers in the world. He makes factory presets for companies like Roland, Sequential, Korg, and Ableton, just to name a few. His company, Symplesound, provides some of the finest sound libraries available. Francis' latest work is a collaboration of Serum presets with sound designer Tom Wolfe.

For our third conversation on the podcast, Francis and I covered quite a range of topics, including his many projects during the pandemic, memories of Dave Smith, and why you shouldn't listen to your tracks until they are finished. As usual, it was an honor to speak with Francis and learn from one of the masters of the field.
