Xfer Records has released v1.35b7 for its wavetable Serum Synthesizer adding VST3 support for macOS (Intel + Apple Silicon) and Windows.
A few years ago, Native Instruments’ Massive was the nonplus ultra in the field of wavetable Synthesizer plugins. The signs for equal success with their successor Massive X are rather unfavorable. This isn’t just due to the slow support for Massive X (no wavetable import, no patch import from the original Massive…).
Steve Duda’s aka Xfr Record’s Serum plugin has won the hearts of EDM producers. That was already at a time when NI’s plugin was still up to date and offered a lot that Massive couldn’t. And again with better sound quality.
Xfer Serum VST3
A lot of back information for tiny news. Xfer Records today released Serum update v1.35b7 that adds a VST3 version to your plugin folder on both macOS and Windows. No news, but as a reminder: Serum has been compatible with Apple Silicon for some time, which also makes the VST3 for macOS useful.
Besides the new VST3 compatibility, Steve Duda added pixel dimensions to the Zoom menu item found in the Serum logo, and a new export for the last played note with chord support. Then, you use a new formula parser and many bugs have been fixed.
Not a big update but one that everyone is happy about especially because of VST3 support. Here are some feature highlights of Serum:
- two super clean wavetable oscillators with linear interpolation or harmonic/spectral morphing
- sub-oscillator and noise generator with custom samples
- generate your own wavetables in different ways: generate waveforms using additive synthesis, from audio files or formula functions, or using the wave draw function.
- a plethora of filter types and effects
- drag- and drop modulations with three envelopes, four LFOs, and more
- tons of high-quality presets.
Xfer Records Serum v1.35b7 is available now as a free download for existing customers. Serum is available now for $189 USD or via Splice for $9,99 USD per month in a rent-to-own 19-month long subscription.
