Xfer Records' groundbreaking virtual synth plug-in Serum sets the bar incredibly high for wavetable synthesis. Studio / producer guru Kenny Gioia injects total Serum knowledge directly into your brain in this meticulous and complete series, making it the most comprehensive exploration into Serum available!
Kenny starts by introducing you to Serum and taking you through its Oscillators and Unison Settings. After exploring Wavetable Positions, the Phase, Pan, and Level Controls, Kenny digs into the Warp Menu Modes, the Sub-Harmonic and Noise Oscillators.
Next, Kenny discusses the Filter Module, Effects, Modulation Options, and Mid Matrix Window. That leads into the Envelopes, LFOs, Voicing, and Portamento Options. After detailing the Global Page Settings, Kenny teaches you about Chaos and other Miscellaneous Modulation Sources, the Wavetable Editor, and how to use Macros in Serum. Finally, Kenny puts it all together by taking some popular Preset Sounds and Deconstructing them and Rebuilding them from the ground up.

Excellent as always
Although Kenny has some kind of strange pronunciation he is an excellent tutor. And once you get used to his phrasing it is even helping to understand things better. In this video series he is covering all there is to know about serum. Great!

Solid tutorial, but the way he talks is distracting. Reminds me of the kid in Malcom in the Middle.

Thorough and Clear
I bought Serum knowing that this tutorial was going to be here so my first toe in the water after trying a few presets was to watch "Serum Explained" while I followed along. The pacing and clarity and completeness of this tutorial series is nothing short of stelar. I started knowing absolutely nothing and now feel I can both edit the factory patches and create my own from scratch. This isn't my first rodeo, but it is my first time playing in this particular arena. Bottom line, I feel like I've been using Serum for years and feel competent and confident using it. Fantastic job!
