I love the raw, gritty vibe that Thorn adds to my sonic arsenal. It contrasts nicely against the sea of analog-modelled VSTs out there and has some unique features, like the Glitch Sequencer. Definitely a keeper.
After 4 clicks of a button i fell in love with this synth, it will be a staple piece of kit used in my productions over the coming years, its a simple as that.... absolutely solid!!
After working with Thorn for just under 5 minutes, I immediately found myself in one of those rare moments where the sound of this synth had me racing to record and capture down all the ideas that the sound of this synth was inspiring me with. And then I started to work with the Glitch feature, and things went to an entirely new level. The ability to mix in the glitch effect so easily, means that I can have subtle little nuances flowing underneath things... this allows the glitch effect to be something that is subtle, tasteful, and you can use in creative ways that makes your track feel so deep...absolutely amazing sounds, and with very little effort...this is one of those rare instruments that will augment your creativity and take it to places you would have never imagined, simply because it sounds so good, and the features are so easy to work with, that iit becomes exactly what an instrument should be, an extension of your creativity. Another thing worth pointing out, is the GUI is so easy on the eyes. It's laid out in a way that makes sense, and allows me to focus on the tone, the sounds and most importantly, the notes i need to choose for my track. This thing is a treasure box of inspiration. 5 stars, all day long.
