It’s worth noting that the FAST plugins don't include presets, however you can use the different profiles available to help the plugin learn the best parameters for your chosen sound.
Different profiles allow you to tell the FAST plugins what kind of instrument or voice the plug-in is dealing with. This ensures a perfect adaption of the processing to your audio material. Profiles are available from the drop-down below the "Learn" button.
