Steve Duda’s Serum is a beast of a synth. I am scouring the interwebs for all the free serum presets so no one else has to.
As always, the free stuff is usually not the best but can be a good start; although, recently, the free presets have been getting better and better. The best free presets usually come from free sounds/demos, like in the Titan-1 below.
How TO INSTALL SERUM PRESETS AND WAVETABLES:
Drag and drop preset folders into the Serum /presets folder. Drag and drop Serum wavetable folders into Serum /wavetable folder.
