The Unfinished has announced the release of a brand new two-volume soundset featuring a total of 300 patches for the popular Serum wavetable synthesizer by Xfer Records.

Serum Nova is designed to encapsulate the musical and artistic aesthetic of cyberpunk and sci-fi: synth sounds for dystopian, futuristic cities, bathed in the neon noir glow of high tech and low lives.

Inspired by the music, sound design and world-building of film, TV and anime franchises such as Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Star Wars (Andor and The Mandalorian), Akira, Deus Ex, Metal Gear, The Matrix, Aeon Flux, Wipeout, and, of course, Cyberpunk 2077; in all their gritty, glitchy, gorgeous and ground-breaking glory.

Serum Nova is also influenced by diverse artists such as Hyper, Michael McCann, Le Castlevania, Ben Frost, Juno Reactor, Jean-Michel Jarre, Clock DVA, Power Glove, Gunship and, Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury.

Both volumes ripple with scorching basses, diaphanous pads, dynamic sequences, and evocative synths; all dripping with a deft fusion of digital and analogue synthesis.

Serum Nova I and Serum Nova II contain 150 patches each, priced £19.99 GBP each. The limited edition Bundle version is £29.99 GBP. Prices ex. VAT where applicable. All versions also contain two new Serum skins, designed by The Unfinished.
