This 'lite' version will either satisfy that need, or eventually become indispensable enough that I jump for the real deal
When I originally demo'ed Thorn, being a fairly minimal kind of guy, I found the simpler patches were what interested me most, a lot of the full-fat ones seemed OTT to me. So I don't think the missing oscillator etc is a showstopper for me, it's the glitch seq and general sound that got my attention. So, thanks CM/Dmitry.
One thing I noticed with ThornCM; I know there was considerable debate about the GUI when Thorn came out (...) so nice to see scale options as well as the 'normal', 'large' etc options (maybe in full Thorn by now too). ThornCM at 110% looks great on my 1366*768 laptop screen.
I remember having problems like everyone else with the initial sizing options i.e the large would not fit on my laptop screen. Now, if i minimise Logics plugin framework, and taking into account the missing oscillator, I can use it on 'Large'. With my newer 27" 1080 screen, the gui is a thing of beauty.
I actually initially really liked the sound. And seeing as I have don't really have anything with such a cutting (like, literally) -edge sound, I thought it would be a great addition. I remember spending ages just jamming with the 'Lead' bank, which contained so many fantastic patches, that were suitable for much more than just leads. Also, being an amateur at sound design, I found Thorn to offer many ways of radically altering the sound of patches with very little effort.
An all-round winner
