Introducing the Moog Etherwave Theremini Miniature Theremin – a re-imagined version of one of the oldest electronic music instruments in history. This instrument offers a unique experience, as it is controlled through gestural movements rather than touch. The Etherwave Theremini allows you to control pitch and volume by simply moving your hands through the air, making it one of the world’s strangest and spookiest musical instruments.
The Theremini features a range of performance-enhancing features to assist the user in playing every note in a selected scale perfectly. This includes assistive pitch correction, which can be adjusted to different levels of difficulty, and a built-in tuner that provides real-time visual feedback of each note played.
Additionally, the Theremini boasts a sound engine with 32 sound presets, each providing a distinctly different tonality or timbre, allowing users to explore and play with different sounds. The built-in stereo ping-pong delay allows for the creation of spooky and spacey effects, perfect for sci-fi movies and games.
The Etherwave Theremini can be used as a live performance instrument or in the studio. It features a built-in speaker and headphone port for private rehearsals anywhere, as well as a USB MIDI connection for transmitting and receiving MIDI data between the Theremini and a compatible computer or MIDI device.
