The Mind of a Killer Preset
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dave Fore and I have been an audio engineer for 30 years with 7 Billboard-charting projects and 1 RIAA Gold-Certified Record (soon to be Platinum). I have credits on more than 500,000,000 streams and have worked with hundreds of artists and producers just like you. I also happen to be a synthesizer enthusiast and gear junkie, having bought my first synth (Roland Alpha Juno) in the 80's before I was old enough to drive. I love synths and effects pedals!
While I am musically trained, having played saxophone, piano, drums and performed as a vocalist, my strength is in the technical side of music. After attending Musician's Institute for 6 months in their Keyboard Institute of Technology, I realized my destiny was not in being a performer, but being the guy behind the scenes making the performer sound the absolute best they can. So I jumped to the LA Recording Workshop and it was then my career began to take off.
I created Killer Presets not just as a way to share my passion for sound design but to do so in a way that utilized the audio engineering techniques I've used and relied on for numerous client projects. My goal is to create sounds that are both creatively inspiring and producer-friendly so that they fit very well into a mix without much EQ, compression or leveling. This allows you to focus solely on the music without getting distracted when you're in a state of flow. When you're auditioning sounds, I want you to immediately hear the potential of preset so that you can work faster in getting your art to the finish line.
Making Killer Presets is what I do when I am not engineering audio for my clients. I price my presets fairly so they are available to a wide range of musicians, from beginners to seasoned pros. My hope is that they will inspire you to make amazing records to share with the world.
I appreciate every one of you who supports my mission and purchases my products. It's not taken for granted and I am grateful for the opportunity.
