Soundset with 240 Serum Pad Presets

Gathering together a large group of fourteen top-tier seasoned sound designers, Hey! That’s What We Call Pads, vol. 1contains 240 presets and is the first soundset in a series that explores a singular category of sound. In this volume, pads are in focus and the synth is Serum. 

Contained within is an expert blend of aesthetics imprinted with each sound designer’s unique sonic signature. Every preset is an expression of their own personal sensibilities and each designer’s unique take on pads is different from the other.

The impressive list of sound designers include: Arksun, The Unfinished, Venus Theory, Bigtone, S1gns of L1fe, Erot, Electric Himalaya, Airwave, Oblivion Sound Lab, Michael Oakley, Lauge, Sonic Underworld, Echo Season and Luftrum, featuring sound sculptors who have worked with leading synth companies such as Korg, Steinberg, Arturia and Waldorf and collaborating with the biggest names in the industry from Hans Zimmer to Armin van Buuren.

Hey! Pads
 stands among one of the largest ever ‘pads only’ collaborations on a single soundset, and with 240 pads for Serum, there is a veritable cornucopia of pads to choose from. Within you will find warm vintage 80s pads to crystallized frequencies pulled from the remnants of galaxies. Brooding cinematic pads will captivate your audience, and lush ear-tingling atmospheric pads will propel your listeners into orbit.

In addition, the soundset comes with 150 custom handcrafted wavetables created by Luftrum. These wavetables are all based on pads and augment Serum’s factory content with new timbres that come to life when slowly modulated over two or more bars. The wavetable pads are included with the set but can also be ordered separately (see below).

The set also comes with a new free Raven Black skin (see below), in dark grey colors and with black keys, designed by Luftrum. The skin alone is 100% free and can be downloaded below, but is also included with the purchase.

Every preset focuses heavily on playability and expressiveness and has assignments for Modwheel, Velocity, and Aftertouch (when appropriate) and has a few dB of headroom reserved for easy mixing. In addition, all 4 Macro knobs are utilized, which tease out new timbres, introduce subtle rhythmic elements, or completely warp and transform patches into something else entirely.

The soundset is 587MB and requires Serum v1.345 or later. There’s a PDF guide included, download it right here. If you don’t have Serum, but want to give it a try, you can rent it via Splice for $10 per month.
