Knowing Your Modular Synth: 23.499 Minutes to Understanding Thor

Check out Propellerhead (or the creator of Reason’s) description of Thor… If this doesn’t compel you to use it, I don’t know what will:

Thor sounds like no synthesizer you’ve ever heard before – and every single one of them. Where other synths use one specific form of synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six different oscillator types and four unique filters. What does this give you? Simply the most powerful synth ever created; an unstoppable monster of a sound generator that utilises synthesizer technology from the last 40 years.

If you’re interested in advancing your proficiency in the modular synth, Thor, and fine-tuning your work, check out this video.

 

This is one of the more comprehensive Thor tutorials available on the Internet: Reason Basics – Complete Thor Tutorial. Then, Thor Demystified 1 is the start of a series by Propellerhead that elaborates into why and how Thor–and all modular synths–work.

 

Watch the movies and comprehensive breakdowns, and you, too, may understand Thor in no time.

 

“We can’t win a game that we don’t understand” (Pagan, Eben in Self-Made WEALTH when talking about the monetary system… applies to all).  Let’s understand Thor–and Reason.

 

Talk soon, Friend!
