So you’re a novice music producer and you’ve found yourself lost in the endless world of plugins, VSTs, and sample packs. Well, my friend, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’re going to tackle one of the most powerful tools in a producer’s arsenal, Serum – and specifically, how you can use free Serum presets to kick-start your journey into music production.

The Power of Serum

Before we dive into the exciting world of presets, let’s talk about Serum for a moment. Created by the talented Steve Duda, Serum is a wavetable synthesizer plugin that allows you to create, edit, and morph wavetables in real-time. Its intuitive interface and massive library of presets make it an absolute beast when it comes to sound design.

“Serum is the go-to synthesizer for countless music producers around the world, from novices to professionals.”

But let’s face it, as a novice, diving into Serum’s intricate world can be intimidating. This is where presets come into play.

Presets: Your Secret Weapon

A preset is a pre-made sound that you can load into Serum (or any other synthesizer). Instead of spending hours tweaking knobs and sliders, you can simply load a preset and start playing.

“Presets are your shortcut to achieving professional sounding tracks without the steep learning curve.”

In the world of Serum, presets are plentiful. But you might be wondering, where do I get these magic potions for my music production? Well, let me introduce you to the wonderful world of free Serum presets.

Finding Free Serum Presets

You might be surprised to find that the internet is teeming with free presets for Serum. Renowned music producers and sound designers often release free presets as a way to give back to the community. Here are a few reputable sources to get you started:

  1. Cymatics: A treasure trove of high-quality presets and samples.
  2. Reddit’s r/edmproduction: A vibrant community where producers often share free presets.
  3. Producer forums and Facebook groups: Another goldmine for presets shared by other producers.

But wait! Before you rush off to download all the free presets you can find, remember this:

“The goal is not to collect presets, but to learn and understand how they work.”

Learning From Presets

This might be the most important part of this whole article. Yes, presets are great for making quick and impressive music. But as a novice producer, your focus should be on learning. Load up a preset, analyze how it’s made, tweak parameters, and see what happens.

Remember, in music production, there are no rules. It’s all about experimentation and creativity. Use these presets as a stepping stone to create your own unique sounds.


Free Serum presets are a fantastic tool for novice music producers looking to elevate their music. They provide a shortcut to professional sounds, but most importantly, they serve as a learning resource.

As Mark Manson, the famous author, once said:

“You can’t be an important and life-changing presence to some people without also being a joke and an embarrassment to others.”

In the world of music production, don’t be afraid to be a joke or an embarrassment at first. Embrace the learning process, experiment with presets, and most importantly, have fun.

Happy producing!
