TUTORIAL | How To Install Serum Wavetables & Presets
What’s up everybody! This is just gonna be
a quick video on how to install presets and wavetables into Serum. It’s really really
easy to do. There was a time when I needed this information and it was not as easily
available or as easy to find as I had hoped, so i just wanted to make a quick and short
video about how to do that. So first of all you’re gonna need the latest
version of Serum. You can find it on the Xfer records website under “Your Account” and then
the downloads section will be available and you will see the latest updates. Right now
I believe its 1.07 beta. That is the latest version as of December 8th, 2015. So, download
that and of course you can find online tons of free preset packs and wavetable packs.
Ill be using this Biomorphic pack for this example. So, once you unzip that you’ll have these
folders “presets” and “tables”. And there will just be these .fxp files for the presets
and tables for the wavetables. So, then you’re gonna wanna go to your Documents
which is most likely where your presets will be installed by Default when you install Serum.
So that will be of course under “This PC” then under ‘Documents” then “Xfer”. And here
you have the Serum presets folder. You have tables, and presets and noise and LFO shapes.
Of course you can import all kinds of different things but we’ll just be focusing on presets
and tables. If you open this up you’ll see the default
folders that Serum comes with including the user folder. If you click that you’ll see
this little text document saying “place your wavetables here”. So, simple enough! All you must do is take
this folder that you downloaded and drag and drop it into this folder. Go back to your
presets, go to “User”. And same thing… Drag and drop it and there you go. Easy enough, right? So now we can “X” out of this, go into FL
studio, open up SEEERUMMM. Uhm.. right up here. So now, when we go to “USER” our wavetables
are installed. So that’s just a single cycle -well not single
cycle, uhm, it’s not really a wavetable, it’s just a waveshape, this example. But if you go to presets and user you will
also have these different presets if everything went correctly. And you also have this little cool tab which
allows us to browse through it. That is pretty much it, its as simple as that. It is really
easy and I just wanted to make this video so people can avoid browsing through every
single thing like I did. I searched under “program files” I searched everyhting I couldnt
find it. And of course it was right there under documents and as easy as that. At least
this way the information is there and easily searchable, hopefully. So i hope you guys
found this helpful and have a great day!
