Irritate? Don't play those harsh patches. This is a single preset from my soundset, no outboard fx to make it warm and smooth. The color changes coming from the built in controllers.

I can make a nice pad by sampling a running car engine when applying reverb and chorus afterwards. So i don't see the point of you example. Make a short AMP env bass sound with a filter without any effects (provide the patch too) and then let's compare it to some others synths.

P.S: I never use patches.

So maybe you should? Maybe others can make better patches than yourself? Because now you contradict your own argument.

I just spend one month and a half tagging all my presets for VIP, just to see what other people came up with. There are hundres of wild electro-dubstep basses I woudl never come up with, however there's also Cosmic Trigger bank which sounds just like vintage synths (Korg wavetable?) and I would never expect to hera that in Serum. Also, here were some ambient banks but I don't have it.
The point is, people have already made every sound possible with Serum.

And most of them I don't like because they sound hard and sterile to me...

This was Analog_BD_Sin, through High 24 filter self-resonating (settings are still in the patch but it's disabled), resampled back to Osc A, with windowed sync and 3-voice unison. No effects. No modulation. Envelope is just the default gate with the release turned up.

It took about 2 minutes to make this.

Is that something you would call "hard and sterile?" Serious question, because I've never once understood this accusation leveled against any synth in the history of KvR.

This mode audio pack of presets shows how it can go into 80s territory:

Made this patch for fun using the now defunct Z3TA2 Wavetables. As a bonus it uses some of the arpeggiator midi files for the sequences.

Cool! I had been wondering if z3ta's wavetables could be used in Serum.

Will all of z3ta's wavetable files import properly into Serum?

Did you have to do anything special to the files to get them to import properly into Serum?

No problems at all, I just dragged and dropped the folder of wave files into Serum and it loaded them. I did add a morph to the entire selection though so they would smoothly cycle when you sweep the index.

That demo was just a single patch too with some DAW automation for the Macro knobs on Serum.
