I've taken what I have learned since volume two, and pushed myself to explore new areas of synthesis and Serum's complete capabilities. The addition of the the scream filter and sine-shaper to Serum allow Halcyon Vol.3 to be broader in scope than previous volumes. Distortion, when used carefully, can lead to rich and expressive sounds. The sine-shaper in particular, when combined with pre-filtering, yields an abundance of character. The 101 sounds here have been designed stand their ground in a busy mix, or provide a rich foundation in more minimal compositions. Rather than focus on a genre, the sounds in this bank vary more by sound design technique. Wavetable synthesis provides moody, swirly pads, pitch drift and saturation provide the flavor of vintage synths, and careful filter/distortion combinations allow for the up-front and pushy modern sounds. The precision offered by Serum’s engine ensures a clear, defined sound. Changes can be introduced to the presets, from subtle to extreme with the assigned Macro controls.
