Xfer Records has introduced Serum Toolkit Volume 2, a new collection of Serum patches created by sound designer Francis Preve.
Serum Toolkit Volume 2 puts the emphasis on iconic sounds, built around a variety of synthesis techniques, including analog, FM, vector and LA synthesis.
In addition to recreations of classic synth patches that are perfect for synthwave and retronica applications, Volume 2 includes 40 analog-style sounds, based on samples from Preve’s collection of vintage gear. The sounds of synths like the SH101, SEM and MS20 are included, bringing an analog element to the sound of Serum.
Here’s what they have to say about the new sound library:
Punchy basses, smooth pads, crystalline bells and fat leads are all present in this pack of 100 presets, along with an array of rhythmic elements and vintage percussion effects to round out the package. As with the original, the main macros offer versatile control of elements like Spectrum, Subs, Filter, Envelope and Effects.
There are also specialized macros for FM and vector synthesis that allow for quick edits – regardless of skill level – so if you’re already a fan of Volume 1, you’ll be right at home with the new edition.
Pricing and Availability
Serum Toolkit Volume 2 is available now for US $29.
