How about pimping your Serum a bit ?
Although we still love Serum default skin after all these years, sometimes change is good and it shakes things up a little bit:
If you missed it, check out this article in which we already listed some of the coolest free skins that were available at this time for Steve Duda’s monster synth XFER Serum .
Let’s dive in, and first let’s quickly check how to install and change new skins.
First,make sure your Serum is up to date: Simply check your account interface on XFer’s website to see if an update is available.
Then locate the skin folder to add new skins.
- On Windows the folder is: Documents/Xfer Serum/Presets/Skins
- On Mac, the folder is: Library/Audio/Presets/Xfer Records/Serum Presets/Skins
You should find the “Default” folder for the default skin, be careful with that and don’t touch it.
The skins you download will usually come in a folder, just place those next to the “Default” folder. Inside of each skin folder, there will be 4 assets:
-1x: All digital assets at normal scaling when at 100%
-2x: All digital assets at doubled scaling for anything above 100%
-Fonts: Included fonts with the skin
-colormap.png: The color map for LFO’s, envelopes, and other reactive modulations
