Since I bought Serum I've felt like I could have a go at making everything from scratch, not because Serum is necessarily set up for that, but just because it's one of those vst's that I just clicked onto, it makes sense. Mostly I just use the standard wave shapes and modulation. I have rendered most things to audio (Serum is a hog) and added other processing like time stretching, compression, eq, transient shaping and reverb. Serums fx section is limited in regard to that sort of precise processing you sometimes need to finish off a sound. Anyway, here's a few of my early attempts, mainly focused on trying to learn how to make drums, just wip clips so mixdown is non-existent Every sound in the clip is started from an initialised Serum patch Who else makes all their sounds from scratch? Post up some things you want to show off, or give some pointers on how to make a sound. Do you think it's worth it making your own stuff?
