1. The pad is easy to duplicate in Thor, use 2 Multi Osc for your oscillators, that or 1 Analog Saw and 1 multi osc. Play with it, mix and match it with different octaves, Activate chorus in Thor. Play with the Frequencies. EQ some of the frequencies to make it Thin if it's too bassy for your liking. Reverb it a bit. That's it.

2. For that staccato type synth, he used an arpeggiator 2 of them I think and blended the pattern of those 2. he used delay on it with 1/8T steps... The staccato sounds is just Sawtooth, with the Delay(D) and Sustain(S) on both Filter Env and Amp Env dialed all the way down until you get that sound...
