My 3rd set for Serum is here:

Image

The third patchpool set for Serum explores this unique synthesizer to the bone, using conventional and more often unconventional sound design techniques. There are no restrictions, the goal was to create creative, inspiring and musical sounds with the best possible sound quality for each patch.

The palette of timbres in this set addresses and will inspire composers from many genres who are searching for smooth animated pads, complex soundscapes, intricate and minimal sequences, mellow and expressive leads, sparkling bells, percussive impacts, otherworldly noises, cinematic textures and gloomy drones.

Dozens of wavetables were extracted from the vast pool of patchpool samples, others were created inside the Serum waveform editor, images were wave-tabled/re-synthesized, many patches layer two wavetable oscillators and also incorporate the sample and sub oscillator. Numerous samples were created exclusively for this set, others were borrowed from various patchpool libraries. Each patch has four Macros and the modulation wheel assigned, velocity is used as an important modulator - not only for volume - many presets also use aftertouch, giving the Serumist deep control to shape the sounds and adapt them to a given musical context.

You can view/download the PDF for this set including the licence agreement, more info and a detalled patchlist here.

Specs:
  • 101 patches (91.2 MB)
    364.5 MB of samples, 29 wavs / 44.1 Khz / 24 Bit / stereo
    119 wavetables (85 MB)
    Library size in total: 540.7 MB
    All patches have velocity, aftertouch, modulation wheel and four Macros assigned.

I needed some epic-ness this afternoon ->
Cinematic track featuring three fresh Serum patches from Free Style - some Macro/modhwheel/aftertouch automation in two of the patches and a limiter on the master output.

After having tested Avenger I still think, Serum is one of the finest wavetable synths out there...
