How to import the wavetables into Serum?
Once you downloaded your wavetable package you might need to unzip it. When you have done that you should have a folder with a lot of .wav files inside. Put that folder in a place where you can find it like the desktop or keep it in your downloads folder.
Now you want to open Serum inside of your DAW. Now click on the “Menu” button in the top right corner and choose “Show Serum Presets folder”.
Now you will be presented with a folder. Copy the folder with your downloaded .wav files and paste it into the “Tables” folder inside of the opened window.
Now you are done. You might need to restart Serum and/or your DAW for it to load the new wavetables. Have fun with your newly acquired wavetables!
