There is not much to say about Thorn that has not already been said...

Everything about this synth is top shelf...

This is coded by a very smart cookie who knows a thing or two about DSP and the importance of having a clear and functional layout...

Because everything is basically on one page, the workflow of Thorn is fast and efficient...

This synth is capable of producing so many different sounds - from warm analog to harsh digital - and it has it's own "character" which blends well with other instruments in the mix...

Because of it's unique nature, when you are tweaking things to sit it in the mix, you can find so many nice surprises and that makes this not only an enjoyable, practical tool but a fun toy as well :).

The glitch sequencer is extremely cool and you can really dial up some rhythmic goodness there...

I am a fan of Tantra, so to basically get Tantra built into a synth is a serious bonus...

One of the smart features is that you can save the presets for the sections separately, so importing those into other patches is really easy and so helpful...

This is a desert island synth for me...

I have some solid soft synths that I use and most of them have been with me for some time, but Thorn has quickly become a real workhorse and part of the handful of synths that I consider indispensable....

5 Stars to Dimitry for coding such a wonderfully inspiring piece of software...

Thank you...it is greatly appreciated....

Just got the latest Computer Music mag today. In it, under Next Issue, they show next issue's downloadable vst, and it's... Thorn CM :)

I have to say this one had passed me by, but from a quick eyeball it looks like it gets 2 oscillators instead of 3 and 1 filter instead of 2, and the noise section is missing a couple of routing options; but for the cost of an issue of CM, it looks superb.

Thorn CM is now available, and it's *extremely* nice. It had me at the first preset - I turned the Arpeggio option on and modified a couple of settings at random, and fell in love. Will definitely be buying the full product :)

my new favorite.

Bought it a few days ago, after reading that it would be in CM, getting excited and trying the demo. Had to have it. Using it in everything now. Has such a great clear sound.....really pristine. Sounds like some NI synths, such is the level of quality.

Sounds excellent! Very few types of sound it can't turn it's hand to. And doesn't just do some types OK, and some great - everything sounds great. Love the glitch seq too, didn't think I would. Thanks Dmitry.
