When syn­the­sis­ing com­plex sounds, ef­fects are of­ten nec­es­sary to add an ex­tra di­men­sion of sonic fi­nesse. Luck­ily, then, Serum’s FX rack con­tains ten pow­er­ful ef­fects mod­ules, ac­cessed by click­ing FX at the top of the plugin win­dow. You can use up to all ten of the mod­ules at once, in any or­der you like. Us­ing Serum’s in­ter­nal mod­ules also saves on the CPU over­head of open­ing ex­tra in­di­vid­ual ef­fect plu­g­ins, and your FX set­tings are stored within your saved pre­sets.

For this video, we’ve come up with an ethe­real-sound­ing pad patch, which uses seven of Serum’s ten ef­fects mod­ules, so you can get an idea how a com­plex chain of ef­fects can rad­i­cally en­hance a ba­sic sound. In its raw form, the patch sounds pleas­ant, but no­tice­ably static. Turn on the full chain of ef­fects mod­ules and the pad comes to life with a rich tex­ture of or­ganic stereo move­ment.
