You’re probably here, because you finally made the very good decision to get yourself a license of Xfer’s flagship synth Serum. You played around with the stock presets for a while (which honestly aren’t that good) and now you’re looking for something better, right?
In this list you’ll find thousands of free Serum presets for a variety of different genres, so no matter if you’re producing Trap, Hip Hop, Dubstep, Future Bass or House: I’m confident that you’ll find something useful 😉
Btw, if this is the first time you’re downloading Serum presets and you just can’t find the right folder on your drive I’d suggest to check out this post here.
Free Hip Hop Serum Presets
Wall-shaking 808s, dark reese basses or keys. The following presets are perfect for everything related to Hip Hop or Trap, but can certainly be used for other styles as well.

Free LoFi and Retro Serum Presets
Somehow old and retro sounding music is more popular than ever before. There’s something about distortion, pitch modulations and vinyl crackles that makes us feel melancholic or nostalgic. If this is the Vibe you’re going for you’ll love the following stuff.

Free Techno Serum Presets
Somehow there aren’t that many presets for Techno producers available. The ones I found, however, are from the highest quality (especially the ones by Diode Eins).
Free Dubstep Serum Presets
Dubstep and Hybrid Trap are definitely among the hardest genres to produce. Luckily there are some talented sound designers, sharing growls and screeches with us.

The Best Premium Packs
Although this post is mainly about free stuff I want to introduce you to some of my favorite paid packs. Most of the freebies only come with a few patches, so if you really want to get your hands on some complete packs that cover a lot of different sounds you should think about spending a few bucks.
- 120 Trap Presets for Xfer Serum + Bonus Content
- 700+ Serum 808 Presets, Samples, Loops & MIDIs
- My Synth / Retro Wave Samples (download comes with 80 Serum presets)
And if you really want to invest in a huge library of high-quality Serum presets, you should consider to take a look at the Cheops Serum Bundle. It comes with a total of 428 presets and 188 wavetables, suitable for a wide range of genres, including Trap, Hip Hop, Future Bass, Pop or Synthwave.
I know that if you’re new to Serum all the features and functions can be quite overwhelming.. but if you’re willing to invest some time you’ll quickly learn that it actually isn’t that complicated and knowing how to adjust presets can drastically improve your mixes.
That said, here are some addition Serum resources:
- The Ultimate List of Serum Tutorials
- The 6 Best Xfer Serum Skins
- 100 Free Serum Tables (Analog, FM, Growl)
