Serum Trance Essentials Volume 1

Serum Trance Essentials Volume 1

Serum. It’s been named software synthesizer of the year by many, and for good reason. The synth is incredibly powerful, complex, and versatile. But as with any synth it can be difficult and time-consuming to create the sounds that you want and need in your productions.

This is part of the reason why we put together Serum Trance Essentials Volume 1 in collaboration with Grega Cucnik. As our first ever Serum sound set, we wanted to make sure it sounded fantastic, but also that it would be usable straight out-of-the-box, and as you can hear – the demo reflects this well.

Serum Trance Essentials Volume 1 contains 256-presets. You’ll find remakes of sounds from artists such as Armin van Buuren, Daniel Kandi, Mark Sixma, and Andy Moor along with many others. But you’ll also find original sounds: anthemic leads, warm progressive plucks, smooth arpeggios, gritty basses, acids, and a lot more.

The best thing about this sound set? It can be used by anyone. Whether you’re after an uplifting trance lead, a soft progressive pluck, or a heavily distorted bass, you’ll find it here. This sound set is aimed at trance producers of all kinds, and is also a valuable tool for those who produce genres outside of trance.
