Description

Let the Dream Synth Dream More.

“Analog Anthem” is a preset library featuring original UHM wavetables modeled after 10 legendary synths.

What is UHM?

UHM(U-He Math) is the wavetable scripting language developed by u-he, introduced in 2018.

UHM can generate very high quality wavetables expressed by math and logical formula. With its ability of very fine tuning, we replicated the analog vibes as much as possible.

We first made Analog Anthem for Hive. Now the wavetables are converted to Serum, and we made new presets for Serum.


10 of the Legends.

10 historic synths are chosen as models, and each wavetable is named after its model. Listen how wavetables can make a difference.

D
Mini D

Sound of Oldies. when its bright high is cut by resonant filter, “that sound” comes up.


Voyage
Mini Voyage

21st century’s king-like analog sound. Fat in low-mid and very smoothly sounding.


OB
Oberton

Punchy in middle. It shines when combined with loose 12dB filter.


OBM
Oberboss

Sound of gorgeous 80s analog. Bold and brilliant sounding.


JP
Jupitron

Sweet and rich sound of 80s. Stack this and go mellow.


JN
Juna

The most modest sound of all, uniquely cheap in a good way.


Pro Five
Professor V

Very much balanced, all purpose silky sound, with some elegance in it. It can be glaring as well, if desired.


Pro One
Professor I

Rich in treble, tuned for monophonic sounds. Its typical “sync” sounds are also packed as wavetables.


MS
K-20

Late 70s monophonic modular sound. Good for dirty aggressive patches.


nano
nanologue

21st century’s new iconic sound. Warm yet clear sound with unique shape morphing.


*All sounds shown here are included as presets. All morph performed in these demos are done by Modwheel or 4 Macros.

256 Shapes, Continuous.

All wavetables are Multi framed (256 frames). You can smoothly morph between waveforms, which also replicates the behavior of model synths.

Chart

True Crossfading

Most classic synths don’t have continuous shape morphing, only on/off switches. But you can create intermediate waveforms by combining two Oscillators. Some synths, depending on its phase position and direction, create really interesting sound when mixed.

Mixing

You can enjoy these mixed waveform, spending only 1 oscillator! Let’s go beyond what the classics can.

Good Sounds Come from Good UX.

WTpos of each WT are aligned as much as possible.

Basic Rule

This means that you can easily taste through all wavetables just by clicking “Next” button, with no necessity for tuning WT knobs.

Documentation

Wondering how wavetables can contribute to "analog" vibes? Please read the documentation.

  • How to Install Contents
  • How do wavetables contribute to analog sound?
  • Each character of our custom wavetables
  • About “PWM” files

Contents of Presets

  • 75 Basses
  • 45 Mono Leads
  • 10 Poly Leads
  • 26 Pads
  • 10 Plucks
  • 29 Keys
  • 14 Brasses
  • 8 Strings
  • 10 Templates*

227 presets in total. All presets are categorized, and mod-wheel / 4 macros ready.

*No percussion, sound effect or sequence patches.

*Templates... Very basic settings for each wavetable, which follow the structure of model synths. A good starting point for your own synthesis.

Organization

All presets are tagged. In addition, presets are sub-categorized by number from 1 to 4. Each number implies its basic sound character.

  • 1: Soft, gentle, closed filter.
  • 2: Warm, fat, semi-open filter.
  • 3: Bright, noisy, open filter.
  • 4: Modulated, inharmonic or pseudo-real instruments.

It means "Scroll down and go intensive". So if you want very soft pads, look for "PD1-" presets. If you want aggressive trans pads, look for "PD3-" presets.


Search by Wavetables

All presets have information about which wavetables they use. Say you specifically want the sound of "Mini D", just enter "[MG]" in search and all the presets using Mini D are listed up.

Q & A

What's specifically included in the package?
  • Serum Presets
  • 30 Wavetables (wav format)
  • 3 Noise files (recorded from minilogue)
  • 1 Skin (with 10 color variations)

You can find the full list of wavetables and noises in the documentation.

Wavetables may be loadable in other synths such as Vital, but we don't guarantee that. Please check compatibility with this test wavetable. If loaded correctly, this file draws "Sine-Tri-Saw-Sqr-Wide" waveforms.

*Original UHM scripts are not included in this package because UHM files are not compatible with Serum at all.

Are the wavetables created by direct recording from hardware?

No. All wavetables are generated by writing UHM program(u-he's wavetable scripting language).

Model hardwares are used as references, analyzed with oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer. But note that wavetables are not based on a single hardware (except nanologue), but recorded samples you can get through web. According to hardware conditions and recording environments, sound may vary. But when collected, tolerances are diminished and you can see the character of a synth. We took some average point among them to create wavetables.

As to the morphs and mixes, we mainly referred to software emulations. Some are based both on hardware + software, but some of the intermediate waves are based only on software.

Are the output sounds equal to the models?

No, because the other very important part -- the filter -- is different. So the main purpose of this product is not to recreate the full, perfectly equal old sound, but to expand the possibility of Serum. Serum by default is a cold digital synth, but you can add some colors to it with these wavetables.

But the demo tracks remind me of the model synths. How is that done?

Many presets follow the status of the model synths (the number of OSC, filter types and its routing...). So well replicated wavetables + the settings very close to the original = very close sounds.

Analog sounds in Serum... Who wants that?

This product is for people like the followings :

  • Those who don't own analog synth emulation plugins.
  • Those who want to cover more sound territory within Serum, instead of switching many different synths, or learning how to use them in the first place.
  • Those who want modern analog sounds that sit in the mix of digital electronic music.
  • Those who want to get waveforms of synths which are not yet emulated as a plugin (I mean "Mini Voyage" and "nanologue").

"Analog recreation in digital" is always a controversial topic. But the judgement you make is simple. If you love the demo sounds, you should buy!

LISA Skin

Main View

A bonus skin, "LISA" is included in this package. For details, please refer to the product page.

Crossgrade Discount

The wavetables included in this product are identical to the counterparts in Analog Anthem for Hive. So purchasing both products results in some contents overlapped.

Therefore, the owner of either will get $8 discount for another.

You need to log in to your account to be verified as an owner. If you didn't create an account on the purchase of A.A. for Hive, please create one with the same address as you used then. The purchase history will be linked to the account.

*There's a case where the discount is not applied due to some error. Please contact us if you get troubled!

Bundle Discount

And by the same logic, a new customer will also get $8 discount if both of the products are in the cart at the same time.

There's no bundle product. Just put both in your cart and the system will apply $8 discount on checkout (You can confirm it on the cart page).
