Curator Spotlight: Serum Presets

Steve Duda's groundbreaking wavetable synthesizer, Serum, is one of the most popular VST instruments around and a valuable, if not essential, addition to any producer's sonic arsenal. Created in 2013 and released through Xfer Records, Serum has received numerous accolades from the computer music press as well as shoutouts from some of the industry's finest producers.

Notably popular with producers in the EDM scene, Serum is certainly not limited to the genre and is just as impressive when used for cinematic ambiences as it is for Dubstep leads or gnarly Electro basslines.

With a highly intuitive interface and workflow, dual wavetable capabilities, multiple routing options, and an impressive array of handy effects, Serum has set the standard in wavetable synthesis. Not forgetting to mention the most important aspect of the synth... it simply sounds incredible!
