Audiovapor recently released Future Flow, a new Reason ReFill containing 250 new, original patches for Thor. Every patch uses the Thor Pattern Sequencer and goes deep into the polysonic depths of this powerful instrument. Each patch has been built from the ground up using a variety of pattern scales, synthesis combinations, and complex yet musical modulations.
The melodies generated by the Pattern Sequencer can be used for a wide variety of musical styles including soundtrack, electro, house, pop, and more.
Every note step of the Pattern Sequencer is used in every patch to enable maximum flexibility and user customization options. For example, by assigning rests, reversing, changing pattern length, transposing up or down the MIDI keyboard, or changing the Pattern Sequencer rate the user can personalize and alter the melodies in many different ways.
The Thor Pattern Sequencer note pitch is routed to CV out, thus transforming Thor into an arpeggiator that can trigger any other Reason instrument. Future Flow could then be regarded as 250 new 16 bar arpeggiator patterns to trigger or stack other Reason instruments.
Every one of the 250 patches uses new, unique arpeggiated melodies and patches created specifically for this product by Alan Stuart. The sounds range from mellow bell tones, acid-style lines, raw detuned synth sounds, to analog-style melodies. Almost every patch uses the mod wheel and 2 Thor rotary knobs for increased expression possibilities.
Future Flow is now available for $19.99. Audio demo and a free demo ReFill of 25 patches is also available.
