Serum has firmly established itself as one of the best soft synths on the market today, with powerful wavetable synthesis capabilities and a stylish and intuitive user interface. On this course from Senior Tutor Rob Jones, you’ll be guided through every area of the instrument and shown numerous examples of how to design a wide variety of different patches, from basses and leads to pads and FX.
The tutorials begin by focussing on the unique aspects of each of the main synth sections, manipulating waveforms in the oscillator section, adding sub layers and boosting transients, applying dual-filtering, and giving examples of the numerous ways of modulating sounds. Rob then provides a thorough guide to the FX rack, including lessons on each of the individual effects.
After explaining what wavetable synthesis is and how exactly it’s implemented in Serum, as well as the different ways of creating your own wavetable, there are a series of patch design modules, constructing multiple leads, an acid bass and evolving FM pad. The course then ends with a realtime sound design and arrangement module, in which Serum is used to design all of the main sounds in a Neuro-style break, which is laid out in Ableton Live.
After signing up to the course, students get immediate access to the 4 hours of streamed tutorials, along with the presets made, the Ableton Live project and samples, plus a bonus pack of presets from Loopmasters.
