To use the patch, you simply have to copy the .fxp-file to your Serum Preset folder. If you haven’t changed the default preset path, you can find the preset folder under:

C:UsersYourNameDocumentsXferSerum PresetsPresets…

There you can paste the .fxp-file wherever you like.
We suggest creating a new folder “Sapphire Sounds” and a subfolder “Bass Vol. I” and paste it there.

Sapphire Sounds
Serum Bass Vol. I

This patch is part of a preset pack.
