Xfer Records updates Serum synth plugin to v1.01

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Oct 22, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Xfer Records has updated its Serum wavetable synthesizer instrument to version 1.01, introducing new features, enhancements and various fixes and improvements.

Xfer Records Serum

The dream synthesizer did not seem to exist: a wavetable synthesizer with a truly high-quality sound, visual and creative workflow-oriented interface to make creating and altering sounds fun instead of tedious, and the ability to “go deep” when desired – to create / import / edit / morph wavetables, and manipulate these on playback in real-time.

Changes in Serum v1.01

  • added: reduced memory footprint by over 200 MB per instance.
  • added: Export 16-bit wav option to the Export menu.
  • added: pitch-bend will now send and receive automation.
  • added: user-loaded wavetables will now display the original custom WT file name in re-opened patches.
  • added: alt-clicking an FX “bypass” button (right edge of FX rack) will set all enabled FX to that state.
  • added: modified/save-able wavetables now draw a faint-blue in the background of table name, to help indicate edited state.
  • added: text parameter displays (e.g. Octave, delay time, etc) respond to mouse wheel events.
  • added: Aftertouch is now smoothed to prevent quick discrete jumps (zippering).
  • added: A default MIDI controller map is now supported: a map saved as ‘efault.mmp” will autoload and persist preset loading.
  • added: mouse-down on controls displays parameter value (no longer requires ‘knob’ movement for value ‘tooltip’ display).
  • added: CPU reduction for Windows VST_x64 + AAX versions.
  • fixed: OS X: a potential crash opening the GUI in Logic X.
  • fixed: OS X: ctrl-click (right-click substitute) on LFO or FFT context menu was not working on 64-bit hosts.
  • fixed: WIN: GUI Fix for mouse cursor changing to a ‘wait’ cursor when leaving.
  • fixed: WIN: Serum Presets folder automatically selected in default location.
  • fixed: WIN: Cancelling a file dialog was resulting in MACRO1 name getting selected for text entry.
  • fixed: WIN: keyboard focus for text entry was impossible in FL Studio.
  • fixed: GUI: needed to re-select noise tool for noise to reference current frame.
  • fixed: GUI: issues with location of ‘value tips’ drawing.
  • fixed: GUI: context menu pop-up location for FX controls was offset from click location.
  • fixed: GUI: animation would not continue when a voice was stolen in b4.
  • fixed: GUI: FFT bin values when drawing the the mouse were incorrect in b3.
  • fixed: GUI: poly/mono shader was not always updating state in b3.
  • fixed: GUI: additional multiple-checkmark bugs in menus.
  • fixed: GUI: expanded mouse-click area on FX switches (E.G ‘BPM’ Switches) to include more mouseable area on the label.
  • fixed: GUI: multi band comp metering would not always display on some hosts.
  • fixed: GUI: shift-alt-click to toggle Uni/Bi on lower knobs which are valid mod destinations (ADHSR, LFO rate) were not functioning correctly.
  • fixed: GUI: checkmark bugs in menus (multiple checked items or checkmark not updating with <> advance buttons).
  • fixed: GUI: Asym+ and – were represented as the opposite in 2d waveform (compared to audio).
  • fixed: GUI: last LFO line segment could become a ‘phantom segment’ if multiselected and double-clicking to remove the right-most removable point.
  • fixed: GUI: undo buffer was allowing undo when it shouldn’t have been possible on windows.
  • fixed: DSP: enabling mono with more than one note sounding could lead to a stuck note.
  • fixed: DSP: LFO Rate was still not acting polyphonic with a lot of mod sources.
  • fixed: DSP: wet/dry mix on filters had no effect on L6 and H6.
  • fixed: DSP: crash protection for changing warp mode with notes playing.
  • fixed: DSP: crash protection for adding/removing modulation assignments with notes playing.
  • fixed: DSP: potential stuck notes when exceeding patch polyphony w/ “allow one of any given note number” preference enabled.
  • fixed: DSP: a problem with the phaser Freq at highest frequency settings causing potential DSP overload.
  • fixed: DSP: WTPos being set to maximum value via modulation assignments could crash on first note on.
  • fixed: DSP: FX filters were not completely initializing on preset changes which could lead to audio dropout or a crash on preset change.
  • fixed: DSP: a problem with formulas with ‘rint’ not working (rounded integer).
  • fixed: DSP: threading issue could lead to garbled sound on the playing note or a crash when add/removing tables from the WT editor with a note held.
  • fixed: DSP: LFO rate as a mod destination would only process on the most recent note.
  • fixed: DSP: linking note number or velocity to Warp amount could crash in some situations.
  • fixed: DSP: potential crash relating to new notes and LFO/Env modulation.
  • fixed: DSP: potential crash after saving a MIDI map.
  • fixed: DSP: potential crash with mono toggle button while notes are playing.

Serum for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase at a 33% discount until October 31st, 2014. The update is free to existing Serum users.

Patchpool intros Sonic Tabulator for Serum (pre-order)

Related: , , Posted in news on Oct 02, 2014 - comment 0 comments
Patchpool Sonic Tabulator

Patchpool has announced Sonic Tabulator, an upcoming soundset for Xfer Serum featuring 100 patches covering a wide range of atmospheric sounds, warm pads, huge drones, tinkling bells, snappy plucks, otherworldly noises and animated sequences.

Cold digitalness and darker soundworlds unite with warm, emotionally appealing sonic goodness.

All waveforms in this set are new and fresh, often created by using samples from acoustic instruments from the gigantic pool of patchpool samples as sound sources for the generation of wavetables.

Each patch has up to 4 Macros and the Modwheel assigned, many also use Aftertouch. As Serum also allows for sample playback in it’s noise oscillator, a folder with wav samples (44.1 Khz/16 Bit) is also included in this library.

The soundset is scheduled for release in early November, priced at 28 EUR. A pre-order is available at 22 EUR (over 20% off).

  • ‘Analogue’ styled Sub Oscillator.
  • Noise Oscillator (.wav based with HQ resampling, one shot ‘attack’ option).

You can import single-cycle wavetables of course, as well as many at once (with in-built sorting options, or manual re-ordering).
  • Draw directly on the waveform, with optional grid-size snapping and a variety of shape tools.
  • Generate or modify/process waveforms using FFT (additive).
  • Create or even process waveforms using formula functions.
  • Morph between various wavetables using standard linear interpolation (crossfading) or via harmonic/spectral morphing.
  • Processing menus allow you to do the other tasks you would want, such as apply fades, crossfades, normalize, export, and much more.
  • Ultra-clean/low-aliasing, aggressively optimized SSE2 oscillators.
  • Manipulate the waveforms in realtime in a variety of ways (including FM/RM/AM/Osc Sync/custom warp modes/user-definable remaps).
  • Mod Matrix and drag-drop mod sources directly to destination knobs/controls.
  • 89 filter types (Flangers/phasers/ladder/svf/zdf/combs/morphing/dual types, and more).
  • Integrated effects rack with 10 re-orderable / modulator effects.
  • Advanced unison parameters for custom tuning/stack/warp/depth/spread and more.
  • Hundreds of factory presets and default wavetables made by many industry-acclaimed sound designers.
  • Flexible break-point style LFOs.
  • Visual feedback for modulator depths directly on knob destinations.

Serum is available for purchase for the introductory price of $129 USD through October 31st, 2014.
