Thor this and Thor that (it's not a miricle cure)
Synth -> Maximiser/compressor -> Filter -> EQ -> Chorus -> Distortion -> Reverb -> Delay -> Filter -> Compressor -> Distortion -> Reverb
(people ask me how I get such a warm sound out of reason, this is how)
Example .rps so you can see for yourself that i'm not just making this up
Now modulate the delay wet/dry with an LFO
and filter cutoff with another LFO
and second filter's cutoff with another LFO
Lets also put a another mild LFO on the drive for the distortion.
Sometimes I even modulate my Eq's with an LFO.
Lets see how this looks when using Thor:
Thor -> Maximiser/compressor -> Thor -> EQ -> Thor -> Distortion -> Reverb -> Thor-> Compressor -> Distortion -> Reverb
Thor to modulate distortion
Another Thor to modulate the Eq.
And I haven't even started on splitting the audio signal.
Now how much space am I wasting using needless Thor units. Also you now have to relabel the Thor uints Filter1, Filter2, LFO1, LFO2etc etc how much extra time have I wasted. Now repeat this process for the next 12 synths in your track using different configurations. Confused yet, would it not just be easier to have a dedicated unit to handle these types of setups, one that you look at and think "I know that is an LFO and it's been auto label for me"
and oh yeah what about samplers is there a thor sampler that has 3 filters plus chorus and delay built in to it (No.) What about drum machines?
If you think Thor is the answer to all your problems then you have limited imagination and you obviously don't have projects that reach 200 modules like I do.
Don't get me wrong I think Thor is very much a benefit to the software even if the panel is a bit crowded
When I say I want things to be simple it's because my projects are so complex that they scream for a simpler solution.
