If Roland can reinvent their classic drum machines and mono synths and Behrringer can clone the famous Minimoog, then why wouldn't Xfer records create a hardware version of Serum, their popular software synth?
In a recent Tweet by DeadMau5, the EDM producer appears to be showing some kind of hardware version of Serum and informs us to "keep your skins :P". The interface looks very much like that of the wavetable synth plugin. But we can't confirm whether DeadMau5 has in his studio a bonafide hardware Serum-based synthesizer that will make it to sale in the future, or has created something customised himself.
Here's the tweet:
Here's a closer, zoomed in, look at this "Serum hardware synth":
There is another option. If this piece of hardware in DeadMau5's studio does indeed display Serum on it... it could be a controller of sorts. It doesn't appear to be plugged in to a computer, so we could be looking at a machine in the style of an Akai MPC Live. Basically, machine with a computer inside running the software version of Serum.
Would you like to see Serum as a hardware synth?
