Stefan Goldmann – Presets - Digital Shortcuts To Sound

from The Tapeworm

The Bookworm – TBW#02

220pp paperback book, 110mm x 171mm. Third edition: industrially-sized, with a white-on-black cover (editions one and two with the lary fluorescent green cover are now sold out.)

For his first book, “Presets – Digital Shortcuts to Sound”, Stefan Goldmann has talked to industry leaders, programmers, producers, musicians and fine artists to collect a comprehensive description of the world of preset audio: from synthesis to sample libraries, from instrument emulations and gear cloning to automated composition and performance – short cuts in electronic music, classical and traditional musics, guitar rock & fine arts are covered. Disruptive gear and iconic presets, their background and impact – from Korg’s M1, Yamaha’s DX7 and Roland’s 909 to Ableton Live, Native Instruments Reaktor, Sidechain compression and Auto-Tune – are discussed with unprecedented depth and clarity.
