Thor is the biggest, baddest synth in the Reason rack, and Thor’s sonic secrets are unveiled for the first time anywhere by veteran Thor sound designer G.W. Childs.
While Thor is an extremely advanced digital synthesizer, it is built looking back at basic analog synthesizer modules. G.W. takes you through Thor’s complex kingdom, knob by knob, diving beneath the GUI to uncover the sonic mysteries of this divine virtual synth.
If you're new to sound design, this couldn't be a better time to learn : as G.W. explores the mysteries of Thor you'll learn important sound design principles and see how synthesizer modules worktogether to create sound.
If you’re an experienced synthesist this tutorial will inspire you to dig deeper into the depths of this deep synth. So Join G.W. on an aural journey into the kingdom of the mythological Master of All Synths: Thor!
This tutorial, originally created in Reason 5, is forward-compatible with Reason 6 and beyond.

Amazing course. Covers a moderate amount of synth information, modulation routing, sequencing, and goes into further detail about shaping your own sounds. Great introduction to basic synth procedures.

This was an amazing review and tutorial on this beast of a synth.
I finally got how to tame this thing.
Forget using subtractor or malstom purely because its easier just to route cv and audio behind them.
If you don't know how to use this synth.... You will soon.
