Using Thor to create a three part harmony song.

Here are some ways in which you can use Thor, a software synthesizer developed by Reason Studios, to create a three-part harmony piece of music.

  1. Set up a multi-timbral patch: In Thor, you can create a multi-timbral patch that allows you to play up to three different synth sounds simultaneously. Start by selecting the “multi” option in the “source” section of the Thor device.
  2. Choose your synth sounds: Select three different synth sounds that complement each other and create a harmonious blend. You can choose from a wide range of presets available in Thor or create your own synth sounds by adjusting the various parameters.
  3. Assign each synth sound to a different MIDI channel: In Thor’s “modulation bus routing” section, assign each synth sound to a different MIDI channel. This allows you to play each synth sound separately on your MIDI keyboard.
  4. Create a melody: Using your MIDI keyboard, create a melody on the first synth sound. Experiment with different note lengths, velocities, and articulations to create a dynamic and expressive melody.
  5. Add a second harmony: Once you have your melody, create a second harmony on the second synth sound. This harmony should complement the melody and create a sense of depth and richness.
  6. Add a third harmony: Finally, create a third harmony on the third synth sound. This harmony should fill in any gaps in the melody and create a full, rich sound.
  7. Mix and master: Once you have your three-part harmony piece of music, use Thor’s mixing and mastering tools to adjust the levels, add effects, and create a polished final product.

Remember, creating music is a creative process that requires experimentation and practice. Don’t be afraid to try different sounds, melodies, and harmonies until you find something that sounds great to you!
