Is a wavetable synthesizer with a high-quality sound, visual and creative workflow-oriented interface, with an integrated wavetable editor for creating your own unique wavetable sets.
Two wavetable oscillators, consisting of up to 256 frames each.
'Analogue' styled Sub Oscillator.
Noise Oscillator (.wav based with HQ resampling, one shot 'attack' option).
Comprehensive wavetable editor:
Import audio directly from audio files - Serum has a variety of methods and options for importing + analyzing audio (WAV or AIFF) for breaking it apart into individual waveforms. You can import single-cycle wavetables of course, as well as many at once (with in-built sorting options, or manual re-ordering).
Draw directly on the waveform, with optional grid-size snapping and a variety of shape tools.
Generate or modify/process waveforms using FFT (additive).
Create or even process waveforms using formula functions.
Morph between various wavetables using standard linear interpolation (crossfading) or via harmonic/spectral morphing.
Processing menus allow you to do the other tasks you would want, such as apply fades, crossfades, normalize, export, and much more.
Ultra-clean/low-aliasing, aggressively optimized SSE2 oscillators.
Manipulate the waveforms in realtime in a variety of ways (including FM/RM/AM/Osc Sync/custom warp modes/user-definable remaps).
Mod Matrix and drag-drop mod sources directly to destination knobs/controls.
89 filter types (Flangers/phasers/ladder/svf/zdf/combs/morphing/dual types, and more).
Integrated effects rack with 10 re-orderable / modulator effects.
Advanced unison parameters for custom tuning/stack/warp/depth/spread and more.
Hundreds of factory presets and default wavetables made by many industry-acclaimed sound designers.
flexible break-point style LFOs.
visual feedback for modulator depths directly on knob destinations.
