Halcyon For Serum by Aiyn Zahev is a brand new 128 patch sound-bank for Xfer Serum, using the hybrid engine to give you the edge and complexity of wavetable synthesis with the warmth of analog waveforms and filters all in one place. Halcyon covers warm and lush to digital and edgy but always remains musically useful.
Basses are heavily featured and cover Acid, FM, Analog and Complex wave styles. Trance plucks & Supersaws are plentiful, and keys & synth brass sounds are also featured. There are some beautiful & complex pads, inspired by famous 90’s digital keyboards while others are warmer and more analog sounding.
Halcyon is ideal for dance music, especially trance and house and will provide you with an inspiring palette of sounds for Serum that you can keep coming back to.
Also included are 8 basic MIDI construction kits as heard in the demo which can use in your own productions.
Each patch has modwheel and two macro assignments to give further tonal variation. Care has been taken to make sure the patch levels don’t clip internally or in your DAW.

Artist & Press Reviews
The power of Xfer’s Serum is undeniable and just gets even better with strong presets. Halcyon has put a lot of attention to detail with this package and it has certainly paid off – a really great soundset. While the package might be aimed a bit more towards the trancy side of EDM it will fit many other styles as well. Recommendable! Rating: 8/10
