2. what is it self Osc ???

3. what are the differences between particular modes?

4. and what is drive??? i thing that it is signal amplifier before filtering so my than my question sounds : how can i set up rate of influence that filter on my signal????

ENVELOPES:

5. mod ENV is env for chorus and delay , thats all?nothing else ?

6. is Global ENv usefull i tried do something with it but without changes of sound...


7. on what and what are AM and BW faders on left side of THor?

8. how is diferences between polyphony and release polyphony


OSC:


9. what is x-fade and position in wawe table osc?

think you need to get in touch with basics of sound design before you start asking them questions, half of those are about how any synth works

then watch this

Cynik is right, some of these questions are very general about synths. I have never worked with Thor but can answer some of these questions as they are similar in other synths. I just looked at a part of the video and Thor is a very advanced synthesizer - it's better if you start with a simpler synthesizer first, something like the Subtractor. If you understand how this works, you will be able to easier understand and use Thor, and most other synthesizers as well Smile

Don't know but it probably has something to do with the keyboard. Maybe it changes the filter frequency according to the note played on the keyboard, so you could filter the high notes less than the low notes.

Self oscillation is a function that makes a filter "whistle". It is a sort of feedback. It is usually something that occurs when you put the resonance to maximum. You will hear it whistle when you activate it and you can change the frequency of it by turning the filter frequency cutoff knob. Fun fact is that this is something that happened in certain old analog synths (eg Moog) and it is now emulated in softsynths.

You're right, it is a signal amplifier. It can also be called Gain. When they call it Drive you can usually crank it up to get some distortion and grunge in the sound. You have to set it up carefully, as high as possible while achieving the sound you want. If it distorts too much you take it down. If it's too clean you turn it up.
A good trick is to turn the filter completely open (take a LPF and put the frequency cutoff to the max), then crank up the drive until it is very distorted and fuzzy sounding, then take down the frequency cutoff so you take off the sharp "edge" off. You will get a very nice and thick grungy sound.

With the Tune function you can slightly change the frequency of the notes played. You can put the oscillators (sound sources) slightly out of tune with each other. Like tuning the different strings of a guitar. This will give you a richer and livelier sound, similar to a chorus effect. It is very popular in dnb, things like the Reece bass are dependent on Tune. If you have multiple oscillators running, try turning one up and one down and you'll hear what I mean Wink

I skipped the questions I can't answer, haven't got Reason unfortunately Wink

@Question1:

From the manual of some random VST...

1. CUTOFF controlling the threshold cutoff frequency.
2. RESO controlling the resonance.
3. KBD controls the filter's response to the keyboard.


@Question7:

You may have noticed in the figure that the BW (bandwidth) fader beneath the Osc2 sync button is set to its maximum. Unlike the AM slider (which controls the depth of the modulation) this controls how 'hard' the synchronisation is.

from http://www.propellerheads.se

@Question 8:http://books.google.be

I have never seen THOR, but I have some basic synth knowledge and a little tool called GOOGLE. Try to get your hands onto google (Here's a link to a highly illegal cracked version of google, it gives you access to all kinds of great info).
