Propellerhead’s Thor synthesizer for the iPad is a virtual synth that works just like the popular Thor synth found in Propellerhead’s virtual studio, Reason. Thor is powerful, pro-level instrument that combines several types of synthesis, including wavetable, FM synthesis, and subtractive synthesis. Now, in this power-packed e-book tutorial, G.W. Childs shows you how to get the most out of Thor, including how to build stunning patches and sequences that will add to any performance or composition you’re creating. By following in G.W.’s footsteps, you will build sounds, experiment with routings, filters, oscillators, LFOs and more, and gain a greater understanding of this great virtual synth.
