Serum is a wavetable synthesizer with a high-quality sound, visual and creative workflow-oriented interface, with an integrated wavetable editor for creating your own unique wavetable sets.


  • Two wavetable oscillators, consisting of up to 256 frames each.
  • 'Analogue' styled Sub Oscillator.
  • Noise Oscillator (.wav based with HQ resampling, one shot 'attack' option).
  • Comprehensive wavetable editor:
  • Import audio directly from audio files - Serum has a variety of methods and options for importing + analyzing audio (WAV or AIFF) for breaking it apart into individual waveforms. You can import single-cycle wavetables of course, as well as many at once (with in-built sorting options, or manual re-ordering).
  • Draw directly on the waveform, with optional grid-size snapping and a variety of shape tools.
  • Generate or modify/process waveforms using FFT (additive).
  • Create or even process waveforms using formula functions.
  • Morph between various wavetables using standard linear interpolation (crossfading) or via harmonic/spectral morphing.
  • Processing menus allow you to do the other tasks you would want, such as apply fades, crossfades, normalize, export, and much more.
  • Ultra-clean/low-aliasing, aggressively optimized SSE2 oscillators.
  • Manipulate the waveforms in realtime in a variety of ways (including FM/RM/AM/Osc Sync/custom warp modes/user-definable remaps).
  • Mod Matrix and drag-drop mod sources directly to destination knobs/controls.
  • 89 filter types (Flangers/phasers/ladder/svf/zdf/combs/morphing/dual types, and more).
  • Integrated effects rack with 10 re-orderable / modulator effects.
  • Advanced unison parameters for custom tuning/stack/warp/depth/spread and more.
  • Hundreds of factory presets and default wavetables made by many industry-acclaimed sound designers.
  • flexible break-point style LFOs.
  • visual feedback for modulator depths directly on knob destinations.

Based purely on synthesis, this is my favorite soft synth yet.
