By popular demand, Patchman Music is proud to announce our all-new wind controller / breath controller soundbank for the Propellerhead THOR Polysonic Softsynth!! This amazing wind controller soundbank works with both the THOR iPad app and the THOR softsynth in Reason for Mac/PC.
You asked for a THOR wind controller soundbank from Patchman Music and now you've got it! Patchman Music, the leader in breath controlled sound design is pleased to announce the release of this brand new wind controller / breath controller soundbank for the Propellerhead THOR Polysonic softsynth. This all-new Patchman Music soundbank was specifically designed and expertly programmed by professional wind controller player / master wind controller sound designer Matt Traum for use with a wind controller such as the Akai EWI USB, Akai EWI4000s, Akai EWI5000, EVI, MIDI EVI, Yamaha
WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, MDT, or Softwind Synthophone. These highly expressive sounds
are also fantastic for keyboardists when used with a Yamaha BC1,
BC2, or BC3a or similar breath controller plugged into a keyboard equipped
with a breath controller input, or plugged into a device such
as the MIDI
Solutions Breath Controller Box or the Anatek Wind Machine
(out of production). These THOR sounds load into the THOR softsynth- these sounds DO NOT load inside a wind controller.
This specially designed THOR soundbank works superbly with either the Reason THOR softsynth or the THOR iPad app! THOR is an extremely versatile softsynth for Mac, PC, and iPad that works incredibly well with wind controllers and breath controllers when programmed properly for that purpose. We are extremely impressed with the range of sounds and the superb response we were able to get out of the THOR softsynth. If you thought high quality breath response was not possible in a digital soft synth- think again. These are the amongst the finest and most diversified wind controller sounds we have ever produced in a single soundbank. This soundbank includes everything from beautiful smooth analog leads, to digital DX/FM sounds, to massive Oberheim Xpander Rotator chord patches that were the trademark of Michael Brecker's EWI sound. You will be stunned at the variety of timbres that we have provided for you in this amazing breath controlled soundbank. Be sure to listen to the mp3 audio demo of this soundbank being played with a wind controller below.
Every sound in this THOR soundbank has been fully optimized for use with a wind controller or breath controller. No further editing is needed. Just load up this soundbank into THOR (THOR is not included) and start playing your wind controller or breath controller with the wonderful expression you have come to expect from Patchman Music- the world leader in wind controller sound design. Our clients include the best in the business- Michael Brecker, Bob Mintzer (Yellowjackets), Wix Wickens (Paul McCartney), Tom Scott, Jeff Kashiwa (Rippingtons), Bobby Read (Bruce Hornsby), Mike Phillips (Stevie Wonder), Judd Miller, and numerous others. Patchman Music has also been on the Akai design teams for the Akai EWI4000s, EWI USB, and EWI5000 as well as the MDT digital horn.
> > > IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS!!! All you need to use these sounds is Propellerhead's THOR synth (on your Mac, PC, or iPad) and a connected wind controller or breath controller. If you already own Propellerhead Reason then you already own THOR- it is included with Reason. If you have an Apple iPad, you can purchase and download the iPad THOR app for only a few dollars from the AppleStore. See below for more details. These sounds will NOT work with any other synth or soft synth. Apple Logic, MainStage, and the Propellerhead THOR softsynth are NOT included with this soundbank. We do not sell Apple Logic, MainStage, or the Propellerhead THOR softsynth. Email Matt at Patchman Music before ordering if you have any questions about using these sounds.
Note: These soundbanks have been specially designed for use with a
wind controller or breath controller and thus require one of these devices for proper use. These sounds require breath controller data (Midi continuous controller #2) in order to make
any sound. If you do not have a wind controller or breath controller
you will probably not be able to make use of these sounds.
Volume 1 (Wind Controller) for the Propellerhead THOR SoftSynth
Wind Controller #1 - Patchman Music Volume 1 soundbank for the Propellerhead THOR softsynth contains 100 all-new incredibly expressive sounds specially optimized to respond to a wind controller or breath controller with full breath response.

THOR Volume 1 contains a huge variety of classic analog timbres, amazing acoustic emulations, bright FM/DX type sounds, massive fat layers, huge chorded patches, as well as the amazing Rotator Chorded patches like Michael Brecker used with his Oberheim Xpander. iPad users take note- this soundbank changes everything! You simply will not believe that your iPad can sound this good! For keyboardists using a breath controller, we have included various expressive nuances controlled via the mod wheel in many of the patches. The legato implementation and overall breath response and dynamic range are superb making these sounds incredibly fun and satisfying to play. This Patchman Music Volume 1 soundbank for THOR is ready to be loaded into your THOR softsynth and played. No user tweaking is needed. We've done all the work for you!

Please note that in order to use these sounds you must already own the Propellerhead THOR Softsynth. This soundbank works with both the THOR iPad app and the Reason THOR softsynth. We do not sell Propellerhead THOR or Reason, so you need to buy that first if you do not already own it...

THOR Volume 1 Audio Demo (18megs) Click on the speaker to download
a high quality MP3 audio demo of this amazing new THOR wind controller / breath controller soundbank. Almost every sound in this soundbank is recorded in this extended 13 minute audio demo. Follow along as the sounds you hear start from the top of the list and go to the end in order. Only a few sounds are not in the demo. This demo
was recorded directly from an Apple iPad headphone jack into Logic from just one instance of the THOR softsynth with NO ADDED EFFECTS. Everything you hear in this audio demo is exactly what comes out of the output on your iPad- effects and all!! These clips were played live with a wind controller by Matt Traum. Audio Demo Help
"Hey Matt, I am once again BLOWN AWAY at what you have accomplished with your new THOR wind controller soundbank. I tried others and just about gave up having been really disappointed in the lack of breath response and lack of variety in the sounds. Not a problem here! OMG! This soundbank has it all. A very wide variety of timbres AND super-wide breath response. There is just no comparison when it comes to your programming skills and experience. Once again Patchman Music hit it out of the ballpark! Now I want more!"
"Hi Matt! Great sound design. Congratulations! All the best." - Martin Hurni - Softwind Instruments. Designer of the Synthophone
"Hey Matt! Thanks for the FAST service! I have already loaded the patches into my iPad and am just speechless at the responsiveness to breath! I was amazed back when the iM1 came out. I already had purchased both volumes of your M1 Legacy patches, and having read that the iM1 supported original M1 patches as well as the Legacy patches, I immediately had to figure out how to get them over to the iPad. Once I got them on the iPad, I was very impressed with response. But these THOR patches take it to an entirely new level. You probably already know this, but I realized that I can use Audiobus to load an instance of THOR AND iM1 simultaneously, and layer the two together! This is SMOKIN'! Thanks again for your superb products. All the best."
"Got them and they work fine, thanks! I love the [THOR] Sentimental Brecker and I mostly use the Arp saw synth trumpet as a flugelhorn style instrument. Both sound a lot more expressive to me than many official trumpet sounds. Best."
"Matt! Thank you for the THOR soundbank! I played the patches today with my MIDI EVI and I loved them all! Keep up the good work! All the best!"
"Hey Matt! Really enjoying the Thor and ES2 soundbanks. They sound incredible and are a lot of fun to play. Thank you."
"Matt, you've done it again !!! The Thor sound bank is excellent. It is so nice to have the familiar Patchman wind controller response and sound available in Thor. I've loaded into Reason/Thor for OSX. I'll try it tonight on the iPad."
"Hey Matt. Love those Thor sounds! Again great work! Highly recommended for all AKAI EWI players!"
