Serum plugin now available Rent-to-Own

At Splice, we aim to help artists discover and reach their full musical potential. Over the past couple years, we have made tremendous strides in improving the music creation process, bringing the benefits of the cloud to the everyday tools that music producers have come to rely on. Today we embark on a new journey, setting a precedent for how we believe software should be released in this industry.

We are very excited to announce that we now offer Xfer’s award-winning synth, Serum, on a game-changing Rent-to-Own plan. This new approach lets you use the full version of Serum right away, paying off monthly installments of only $9.99 until you own the plugin outright.

Why Serum?

In less than two years, Serum has skyrocketed to the #2 slot on our top plugin ranking chart, a testament to its versatility among music producers. However, it’s $189 retail price is just out of reach for many producers worldwide. We believe in the power of Serum and are confident that it has the potential to empower producers everywhere as our flagship Rent-to-Own plugin.

How It Works


Our flexible plan lets you try Serum free for three days before you even make a payment. For only $9.99 each month, you can continue using the full version of Serum on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no extra costs or fees. Every payment you make works towards paying off the plugin’s retail cost, with your final payment granting you a lifetime license. Not using Serum as much as you had planned? You can stop payments at any time, and resume to pick up exactly where you left off whenever you’re ready.

Serum also integrates directly with the Splice desktop app to give you seamless updates to the latest versions. This means you won’t get stuck with an old, unsupported version of the synth. No longer will you try to collaborate and find yourself with frozen tracks and an outdated version. Splice will deliver the newest versions straight to you, with simple, one-click updates.

The Future of Plugins

With our Rent-to-Own plan, we believe we can empower producers of all levels by offering them the highest quality plugins in a much more accessible way. And this is only the beginning. We are continuing to work with Xfer Records to integrate Splice’s cloud-based offerings with their plugins, further simplifying the music creation process for producers everywhere.
