The community demanded it, and we’re proud to announce it’s here! The Serum Jumpstart Sound Design Masterclass is the most epic and insane project Warp Academy has ever embarked on.
The whole team has been working furiously on this Masterclass for over a year now and the result is something UNPRECEDENTED. They did months of research into advanced learning hacks and built this technology into Serum Jumpstart.
All these hacks accelerate learning, increase understanding, and activate new neural pathways in your brain. You’ll learn more about sound design in Serum, faster, and more completely than any other course.
You’ll also know with confidence that you’ll remember what you’re learning and be able to apply it when it counts in the studio. After taking this course you’ll be able to:

  • Master Serum and become a legit power user
  • Confidently make the sounds you hear in your head
  • Carve out your own signature sound as a producer
  • Reach your full potential and make music you’re truly proud of

What Makes Serum Jumpstart Different?

The goal of Serum Jumpstart is to have sound design become your new SUPERPOWER, so Warp Academy spent months researching the best way to learn this difficult, but essential skill. You see, it wasn’t enough for them to make “just another course” on Serum. This needed to be an absolute masterpiece, and anything less was unacceptable. They studied how people best learn new languages and complex skills.  Their research took them on a wild journey! It revealed special techniques to hack the learning curve and ensure that what you’re learning is stored in long-term memory. It’s not what you learn, but what you can REMEMBER, that matters. It wasn’t easy building a Masterclass to these standards. Serum Jumpstart took over 4 times longer to build than a regular course.

Why? Read on friend…


Serum Jumpstart uses a cutting-edge format called “micro-learning” where each video is a bite-sized chunk (5 minutes or less) and only on a single, focused topic. This means you can easily crush a couple of videos and make real progress towards your goal – even when you only have a few moments.

Spaced Repetition

This Masterclass uses another special ninja-technique called “spaced repetition”. Key information is given to you not once, but FOUR times. This means that going through the course only once gives you as much knowledge as going through another regular course four times over. It helps the information sink in faster and more deeply for long-term recall.

All 3 Styles of Learning

We also discovered that your brain stores memories in three ways: seeing something, hearing something, and then doing it. When you integrate all three of these learning styles, you maximize the number of neural pathways you’re building and the memory is “stickier”.

Serum Jumpstart uses a special combination of video instruction, audio examples, and – most importantly – specific and structured practice exercises. This activates all three styles of learning and builds the strongest memories.

Find Exactly What You’re Looking for with “Search this Course”

Finally, Warp Academy wanted the Masterclass to be an incredibly valuable reference tool as you go forward with your sound design. It has a special search function that goes through the videos in Serum Jumpstart to find EXACTLY what you need. Videos aren’t normally searchable, and you usually have to wade through a bunch of rambling and buffering to find what you want. In this system, each video is on a single topic, and is specially tagged so the search locks in on what you’re looking for like a heat seeker missile!

Learn Faster & Remember More

Bottom line? All these hacks accelerate learning, increase understanding, and activate new neural pathways in your brain.  You’ll learn more about sound design in Serum, faster, and more completely than any other course.

You’ll also know with confidence that you’ll remember what you’re learning and be able to apply it when it counts in the studio. We’re so sure of this that we guarantee it. If you don’t get these results within 60 days, we’ll fully refund you.

Is Serum Jumpstart Right for You?

Let us ask you this…

  • Have you spent WAY too much time spinning your wheels, not being able to make music you’re proud of?
  • Does your music lack a “signature sound” like other producers seem to have?
  • Do you hear killer sounds in your head, but struggle to make them in the studio?
  • Do you lack confidence in your sound design or find it frustrating?
  • Are you ready to get serious about production and close the gap between you and your favorite producers?
  • Are you ready to finally become the quality of producer you know you’re capable of and reach your full potential?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then this is EXACTLY why Serum Jumpstart was built. It’s so much more than an “online course”. It’s a complete system to transform your skills as a sound designer.

Exactly What’s Included

  • More than 40 included Serum presets, wavetables & noises.
  • 5 Ableton Project files
  • Over 15 hours of expert video instruction from 2 professional sound designers.
  • Over 140 searchable videos.

~ Jason Figg

Warp Academy’s Serum Jumpstart course was exactly the introduction I needed to fully take advantage of this powerful synth, and the short videos made it really easy to apply what I had learned. Definitely recommend this course for anyone looking to level up their sound design skills!


I have always struggled with modulation and really making the sounds move. This course has made it all make sense. I was barely scratching the surface with it! I will definitely recommend this course to all my friends. It’s the perfect intro to serum.
