Propellerhead has released Thor, a new mobile music application for iPad featuring a custom mobile interface, expressive playing features and the same great sound as in Reason.
Thor for iPad puts the mighty Thor synthesizer at your fingertips. Reason’s legendary flagship synth delivers a thunderous sound, god-like sound sculpting capabilities and an innovative, lighting-fast keyboard designed for iPad. Thor is a synthesis playground, a flexible sonic workhorse, but above all, an expressive musical instrument for the iPad.
Thor offers a deep and versatile synth app for your iPad. From its debut in Reason, Thor was designed as a synth geek’s dream synth. Combine its selection of oscillator types, filter designs flexible routing and above all: a sound like nothing else.
Thor isn’t just about sonic capabilities, but also about expressive playing. Its keyboard lets you play however you want. Use the regular, resizable chromatic keyboard, or set it to a key and a scale and use the Collapse function to create a keyboard with only the chord notes in it. To users of Figure, this approach is nothing new.
The sound sculpting is done in the Buttons and Routing modes. Buttons gives you exactly that: the main part of Thor’s interface with buttons, knobs, faders and what have you. Here is where you can access Thor’s three oscillator slots, ready for any of the six oscillator types: Analog, Wavetable, Phase Modulation, FM Pair, Multi Oscillator and noise. The three filter holds any of Thor’s four filter types: Low Pass Ladder, State Variable, Comb or Formant.
Thor is available in Apple’s App Store now for $15.99
