### Third edition (black cover) ###
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.

Robert Henke, co-founder - Ableton
Mike Daliot, senior audio developer - Native Instruments
Michael Wagener, producer – Metallica, Janet Jackson, Ozzy Osbourne, Queen
Cory Arcangel, fine artist
Junichi Ikeuchi & Tomoko Itoh, members of the original Korg M1 developer team
