Tutorial: How to Polysonic Synthesize in Thor

After yesterday's surprise release of Thor, Propellerhead Product Manager Kalle Paulsson reminded me that it is my fault. With the weight of responsibility, and a really cool trick, I set out to record my first tutorial in a very long time. It occurred to me after recording this that there are already many excellent Thor tutorials for the Reason rack, but I think this does a good job of addressing the specific uses and needs of iPad users.

In this video I'll show you how to make use of the "Polysonic" synth to sequence drums, bass and lead in one instance of Thor!

Buy Thor Polysonic Synthesizer on iTunes: $14.99

Thanks for letting me know! YouTube changed a minor little backend thing on publishing automation, it is public now.

NICE!!! I love your ios synth reviews and tutorials! I was hoping for this. ENCORE!

I do like doing these, but time is a huge factor. The site sinks many hours in the day, everyday, and with what I have left I've got to do my day job, some beta testing, and hopefully have time left over to make some of my own music.

Yesterday offered me the time I needed, but also was particularly challenging. I spent most of the day breathing in new and interesting chemicals and avoiding loud noises during a custom kitchen delivery. Then when I finally had edited this all together I had a series of colossal fuck ups with Premiere that nearly delayed this until next week; while I spent the weekend crying in a corner.

the effort behind these videos and reports are so much appreciated by this reader, Tim. No good deed goes unpunished, as Twain said. If thats so, your site, and each deed needed to keep it rolling has earned you a whole lot of punishment! Greetings from LA (from a former chicagoland/western suburbs boy), thanks and keep it up!

I'm so glad you made this! Congrats! I'm ***so*** not watching it though. If I watch it, I will buy it and god damn, I do not need another synth.

Thanks for taking the time to put it together and here is my public apology for bugging you to do more of these and then having the nerve to not click play.

Custom kitchen delivery? Knopfler would be proud :)

Thanks for this. I always pick up something new from your tutorials. I know a lot of effort goes into making them, and you make it look easy.
