Need to learn these instruments now!
Any of the synths can be used for ambient stuff, it's all in the knob tweaking I'm partial to Thor, but that's probably because I've spent the most time with it. Your first concern on any of the synths for pads will be getting your amp envelope set to your liking.
Then there's the easy route: right click an empty area in the rack, create instrument, and browse through the factory soundbank for anything in folders labeled "pads."
