With Fright Night: Darksynth for Xfer Records Serum & Cthulhu, we’ve put together a go-to resource of horror inspired nostalgia.
Featuring 60 Serum presets, 12 Cthulhu chord presets, 10 Cthulhu arp presets, loops, oneshots and MIDI files, this collection will have the creativity flowing the minute you start exploring.
We took inspiration from film and TV such as the soundtracks of John Carpenter and various 80s slasher flicks as well as contemporary artists including Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, Cyberthing! And Street Cleaner to bring you this retro horror flavoured production toolkit.
Whether you work in genres such as Darksynth, Synthwave, Outrun, Cyberpunk or Cinematic, there’s plenty of material here for you to get that Retro-Future vibe grooving along nicely.
Each Serum preset comes fully loaded with 4 Macro controls, enabling you to tailor your sound on the fly and not distract from the production process too much. Featuring Basses, Leads, Pads, Plucks, FX and Textures, you won’t be short on some incredible sounds for a while as the scope to tweak them is almost endless!
For the Cthulhu presets, we input some of our favourite minor chord progressions covering all 12 keys to get the ideas going instantly.
Explore the progressions and mix them up to your liking, everything is in key so you don’t have to worry about any awkward notes disrupting your process! You’ll find triads, sixths, sevenths, ninths and other extended chords.
We’ve taken care of the theory so you can take care of making the music.
We also included 50 MIDI files covering Arps, Bass and Chords ready to use as they are or for you to tailor to your liking for yet more creative potential.
Not only that, we also included all of the loops, drum oneshots, and MIDIs from the demo created by production wizard Van Derand, named according to the Serum preset used for your reference.
Level up your next Synthwave production with this inspiring collection!
