What Makes Serum Jumpstart Different?
Our goal is to have sound design become your new SUPERPOWER, so we spent months researching the best way to learn this difficult, but essential skill. You see, it wasn’t enough for us to make “just another course” on Serum. This needed to be an absolute masterpiece, and anything less was unacceptable.
We studied how people best learn new languages and complex skills. Our research took us 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 us 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.

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”.
In Serum Jumpstart, we use 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, we wanted the Masterclass to be an incredibly valuable reference tool as you go forward with your sound design. We have 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 our 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 heatseeker 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 we built the Serum Jumpstart Sound Design Masterclass. It’s so much more than an “online course”. It’s a complete system to transform your skills as a sound designer.
