Tom Pritchard Sound Design has announced ThorKit, a new ReFill for the Thor synthesizer in Propellerhead Software’s Reason.
Tom Pritchard Sound Design presents ThorKit – 200 patches that push Reason’s Thor synthesiser to its limits!
Compatible with versions 4.0 and above, this ReFill contains 20 juicy monosynths, 94 punchy percussion patches, 54 deep polysynths, and 32 massive sequence synths.
With a mix of clean, crisp sounds and mashed, gritty tones, these patches are programmed to inspire with their expressive playability and evocative timbres.
ThorKit for Reason is available to purchase for £15 GBP.
SoundCells has introduced something that I personally believe will be a classic: Thor Source Version 3 – the Moog Source ReFill
“Thor Source V3″ – when Thor first saw the light of day Soundcells couldn’t resist to test his strength by comparing him to a well known classic from Moog: the Source. Thor’s modular design gave them the chance to rebuild the Source’s details with great accuracy. Then Soundcells copied their favorite Source patches with great ease into Thor and after this they managed to take those sounds numerous steps further. The sounding results however stayed amazingly close to the Source’s character. In this ReFill’s documentary folder you’ll find proof of this. Thor makes the Source polyphonic and velocity sensitive as well. By now you’ll understand that this ReFill goes way beyond only emulating the past. Thor Source offers deep and fat basses, retro and nu style leads, wonderfull keyboard sounds, mouth watering pads, analog drums and more. Version 2 added four sampled raw oscillator settings from the original Moog Source, new combinator patches and new backdrops – with version 3 this ReFill comes with even more samples from the Source…
And let´s not forget to mention the 25 new version 3 combinator patches based on those new samples.Those will be there to give your music an extra greasy analog retro-Moog-bite.
Tweak the rebuild Source sounds in whatever direction using Thor´s tools or just “build” your own Moog Source while using the raw oscillator samples and/or the sampled Source sounds embedded within our NNXT patches. Please always take your time to try every button and knob as well as the Modwheel to get a good taste of all flavours these 214 fine combinator patches will present you with!

- The 25 original documentary patches as described above plus 25 contemporary velocity versions of these patches

Propellerhead guru James Bernard takes a look at Reason’s Thor step sequencer, in the latest of his weekly series of tips for Reason + Record:
Have you ever loaded up a really neat Thor Step Sequencer patch that sounds great? Have you then done all sorts of automation to make it behave the way you want it to in your track? Well in this week’s tip I’ll show you how to tame the Thor Step Sequencer so you can trigger it, transpose it, and use note on/off messages from a controller to “play” the pattern exactly how you want.
You can view the full series on Propellerhead’s YouTube channel.
Here’s what they are saying about it:
Pantheon takes Refill quality to a whole new level. There are no compromises. Each one of the 164 Combinators inside Pantheon is unique, with a widely varied signal path. Further, all Combinator rotaries and buttons are assigned to unique destinations. And finally, each Thor patch *inside* each Combinator has its rotaries and buttons fully mapped! We have even saved all Thor patches separately so you can more easily build them into your own Combinators. There has never before been a Refill with this many powerful, creative modulation possibilities at your fingertips.
Some of the patches you’ll find inside Pantheon range from physically-modelled drumkits; dirty filter FM basses; majestic pads; heavily sequenced chord patterns; pristine belltone layers; futuristic lead arpeggios and much more. Electronic musicians of all stripes will find Pantheon instantly inspiring, and infinitely tweakable. Details:
- 164 unique Combinators.
- 235 Thor patches.
- 28 Subtractor and Malstrom patches
- 9 .rps demo songs.
- All Combinator and Thor rotaries/buttons uniquely mapped.
- Detailed design documentation for each patch.
Dave909′s Thor Sounds Vol. 2
Dave909 has been hard at work expanding upon the quality Thor patches he provided for us a few months ago. In SB Thor Sounds Volume 2 he well more than doubles the number of patches to add a multitude of quality tones to bring out the best in your productions. I lost count at over 200 patches and that was just for Thor. Additionally he has thrown in many Combinator sounds to push this refill to the limit.
At Combinator HQ a new refill has been uploaded that surely will be an asset to your next tunes. Travis Huckins has always provided good stuff so make sure to check this one out fast.
High energy trance leads, arps, sequences(Run), drums, bass, and fx. Also has some DnB patches. Combinator, Thor, Subtractor, malstrom, NN-19, and ReDrum patches, with samples.
