  • Wow: great bread and butter synth!

    by m2
    I wasn’t really expecting much, as instruments have never been Plugin Alliance’s thing, but this is an awesome synth! It’s always a pleasure to scroll through the presets, and hear one usable sound after another: growling basses, leads that cut, rich pads, and some extremely musical and funky arp/sequence presets. I look forward to exploring Thorn in depth, but my first (and second) impressions are that this synth is a keeper.

    Terrific sounding synth, no complaints and the patches that you get with it are top-shelf.
  • Great Sounds

    At first I was a little bummed out by Thorn because of an installation issue involving resource.bin. I was able to get tech support and get the issue resolved. Now that I've tried it out I can say the quality of the sounds are very nice and rich. The combination of the parameters, built in Arp and Glitch effects make this a very versatile synth to add to anyone's collection.
  • Wooow!

    Wow, I extremly like the glitch and arp. Very modular with the harmonic filter. Superbe inovative thing to fix glitch, arp, effects and mod matrix for preset change!

    I'm primarily a guitar player / engineer. I don't know much about synth programming and have always struggled to get good sounds quickly out of other synth plugins. I'm not an EDM guy. I typically focus on pop, rock, indie, and country.
    This is the first of many software synths I've purchased that actually has a ton of GOOD / mix ready presets out of the box. The pads and leads are great and offer a lot of inspiration with almost zero effort. I also found this plugin very easy to use. It took me very little time to get comfortable tweaking the stock presets, and I found it very easy and intuitive to accomplish the sounds I was looking for. The effects section is great.
    Very impressed with this synth. It's definitely my new go-to.

  • Thorn synthesizer

    by Dan Corkery
    The name "DS Audio" is synonymous with hi-quality and attention to detail..and Thorn is yet an fine example of the fact. It sounds amazing, looks stunning and is as deep or as easy as you want or need it to be. It's incredibly versatile and will find a place in your music toolbox, regardless of which genre you produce. It's great, too, to see DS Audio are now part of the PA..which is also a testament to its quality.
    If you're in the market ofr a new Synth, then look no the demo and see for yourself.
  • Thorn in my side

    by Denizen
    I was a little sceptical as I hadn't heard that much about it and surely the most well known synth's are the best right?
    Not even Owww as we say in New Zealand sometimes. This is awesome. I loaded up one of the pad presets and got lost in heavenly tweakery for hours.
    I usually get bored with a new synth vst after a short while as they're mostly pretty much what you expect.
    Not this one. I can't wait to finish work and start playing.
