The Retrowave for Xfer Records Serum & Cthulhu is the ultimate resource for all your neon-drenched and nostalgic needs. This collection features 60 Serum presets, 40 Cthulhu presets, loops, oneshots, and MIDI files, all created using the latest production techniques for a modern twist on a vintage theme.

Drawing inspiration from the soundtracks of John Carpenter, Blade Runner, Drive, and contemporary artists such as Com Truise, Trevor Something, and The Midnight, we've created a genuine retro-flavored production toolkit. Whether you work in genres such as Synthwave, Outrun, Chillwave, Cyberpunk, or Cinematic, this collection has everything you need to get that Retro-Future vibe grooving along nicely.

The Serum presets are loaded with 4 Macro controls each, enabling you to tailor your sound on the fly without getting bogged down in the production process. With Basses, Chords, Leads, Pads, and Plucks, the scope for tweaking and customizing your sounds is almost endless.

Our Cthulhu presets feature our favorite chord progressions from back in the day, as well as plenty of tasty contemporary ones, all across all 12 Major and Minor keys. Everything is in key, so you don't have to worry about any awkward notes disrupting your process. Explore the progressions and mix them up to your liking - we've taken care of the theory so you can take care of making the music.

We've also included all diatonic Triads and Sevenths in multiple inversions across all 12 keys to serve as a handy reference and chord palette for any genre of music. For the true sonic explorers, check out our Mixtape Mixup presets where anything goes!

Finally, we've included a wealth of riffs and progressions created using the Serum presets, along with MIDI files for even more creative potential. We've 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.

Take your next Retrowave production to the next level with this inspiring collection!
