Glitchedtones has released Ambient Mode for Serum & Cthulhu featuring 60 Serum presets, 24 Cthulhu presets, loops, oneshots and MIDI files tailored towards ambient music production.
Each Serum preset comes with 4 Macro controls, enabling a user to tailor their sound on the fly. It features Basses, Drones, Pads, Leads and Textures.
For the Cthulhu presets, there are diatonic chords and progressions in all 24 Major and Minor keys to get ideas going, including triads, sus2, sus4, sixths, sevenths, ninths and other extended chords.
Also included are loops, drum oneshots, and MIDIs from the demo created by production wizard Van Derand, named according to the Serum preset used.
As a bonus, there are also 28 MIDI scales and their related modes in the key of C over one octave.
These MIDI files can simply be used as a quick scale reference or as a tool to help construct melodies and build unique chords in both common and exotic keys including Dorian, Lydian, Double Harmonic Major, Hungarian Minor and Phrygian Dominant. A user can highlight all the notes and move them up and down to different root notes for other keys and modes.
