Mike Hawkins Presets For Serum Volume 1

Hi there! I’m happy to give you my brand new preset pack for Serum! Steve Duda did an amazing job with this synth, and it’s one of the all-round most flexible ones I can think of, so it only felt natural for me to use it to recreate the vibes that I feel make records fantastic. In this pack you’ll find 64 original synth presets built from the ground up. Some of them might sound “weird” at first listen (or in your particular track), however you can be sure that they all have been carefully crafted with a particular idea in mind. The “Knice Party” preset might sound strange on higher notes, but bring it down low and, boy, does that patch kill. “Streets” has something absolutely mad to it when played as a quick drop-pattern, “This One Loves Chords” sounds really sad alone – however strike up a great minor chord and listen to the after-effects of the sound. So good! And what about “Spacetime”? Perhaps not your typical arp, but play a few notes after each other and hear it come to life. And a patch like “Istanbul” changes significantly depending on how quickly you press the note. You get what I’m trying to say here. Go make some amazing records with these sounds! A good part of them have been used on/off in my own records when I need that “unique” layer – that has been more important to me with this pack than just putting together a folder of “Electro Leads 101”. Some of the sounds work great outside their range (“BA Beast” is a cool lead too!) and some of them you should keep in their intended range (“BA Clash” is a great low-player but a whimsy, horrible lead). And check out “BA State of EDM 2015” – a monstrous wobbly bass, but sounds like a fisher-price flute in the high notes. And then a big shout out to my friends 7 Skies, Toby Green and Futuristic Polar Bears who added a few sounds each and really helped the pack come to life. All the best! Mike Hawkins
