Sounds You'll Actually Use Vol. 2 for XFER Serum

This is Volume 2 of my "Sounds You'll Actually Use" series of presets for XFER's Serum software synthesizer.  I've compiled a combination of classic sound recreations and more modern sounds for electronic musicians of all genres.  Some of my personal favorites in this pack include a Yamaha DX7 e.piano recreation, Juno-6 style strings, and a "future bass supersaw" sequence intended to be played with chord progressions.  Thank you for all of your support and great feedback on the first pack!  I'm very excited for this second one!  Story behind the packs below...

Let's give MUSIC PRODUCERS sounds that they can ACTUALLY USE in their music production!  The Sounds You'll Actually Use series was created for XFER Serum with this philosophy in mind.  Several of the sounds in this pack are recreations of essential, classic dance sounds I have heard (and used) on countless house, techno, and dance tracks for many years.  Others are recreations of more modern sounds heard in future house, bass music, dubstep, and trap.  In my humble opinion, all 20 of the included sounds are usable in a broad variety of electronic dance music.  Almost all of the patches have made use of Serum's Macro Controls, the Mod Wheel, the Pitch Wheel, and internal effects to give YOU control over the sound in the context of your music.  Most of the patches are admittedly a bit raw, but can be easily spiced up with Serum's effects rack, or your own DAW or plugin effects.  All sounds (except drums) in the demo song are included in the pack.  The demo sounds are not using any external processing.  Enjoy, and keep your eyes (and ears) open for Sounds You'll Actually Use Vol. 3!

With love,
