Seems weird that it’s not here. I sparked it up today and tossed some PPG wavetables into it and had a blast. It’s been a while, but I instantly fell back into it as if I’d used it yesterday. So intuitive, and it still sounds great. I thought it deserved a “wishlist” thread. What would you want to see in Serum 2? Here’s a few small things I felt could be added.
  • Some audio rate modulation. Filter FM, some basic FM. Could be great if they were available in the mod matrix, but a few things would be nice.
  • A few more analog filter models. Maybe a SH-101 or 303. Those haven’t been done to death.
  • A second filter slot with modulatable blend.
  • A third full oscillator. The samples in the noise osc are nice, but a full on third oscillator would rule.
That’s what I can think of at the moment. Post your ideas.

Arpeggiator, sequencer is the one feature missing the most. MSEGs don't make up for it.

...basically, I can't think of any possible feature that's not already in Arturia Pigments ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

3rd osc. Granular, additive, sample playback. Another filter, arp and sequencer.

second slot for warp on each osc is really needed the most to open new sonic universe ( wiht option to at least 8x oversampling, 16 or 32x for render ), just that i update wihtout thinking , new filter slot parrallel / serial and more filter, more zdf one with audiorate modulation.
also more options to create wavetable.
what ever is there it will be good and i will update anyway..using this synth since first version the programing experience is nice and fun and he added so many new features for free already

3rd OSC + granular + fm
2nd filter + more analog modes + parallel + serial + more drive/distortion options on filters
Arp
Better CPU optimization when playing any chords and/or sounds with longer release time
Render oversampling options

Yeah... Like Sylenth2 or Spire 2 as well. Well, software development takes a lot of time, I guess.

price is not a problem it s well worth the price and if you count all the update for free, it s kinda not super expensive synth.. lot of companies would charge for these updates

I’d like to see a radio tuner on it.

It is for me. Price is why I've never purchased Serum. Maybe it's because I've got a folder full of other synths and Serum is only a 2 Osc synth. :shrug:
