How to Install Serum Skins?
Installing Serum Skins is super simple, just follow these steps!

- Extract the zipped folder in your computer
- Open a new instance of Serum in your DAW
- Click at the dropdown menu from Serum and and select “Show Serum Presets Folder“
- Locate the desired “Skins” folder from the list
- Grab the whole unzipped “Serum Skin” and drag it into the “Skins” folder

As you have learned from this blog, Serum can pretty much look like anything you want!
So, if you want to make it look minimalistic, easy to navigate around virtual instruments, don’t look further and get SERUM 98. You will feel back in the ’90s with the simplicity that characterized the era!
Now, what if you come from a “Massive” environment? Easy! Go download the Massive Skin from Entity & Zaneth. Once you activate it, you will think you are in fact using Massive when you are actually using Serum. Perfect mixture.
And, for my Ableton Live friends, no worries, I got you. If your Serum VI does not look as you would like it to appear, simply load the Ableton Skin by Nasko, and automatically you will believe Serum is one of your Ableton stock instruments.
