Reader Project: A Theremin Built With Theremino

Theremino-based theremin

Here's a cool project submitted by reader Lello La Barbera.  What you see here is a theremin based on Theremino, a modular system for connecting multiple sensing and output devices together with real time communication.  Theremino actually stands for "The Real Modular In Out". 

This theremin uses the Theremino's CapSensorHQ module for capacitive sensing.  The body was created with a 3D printer.  Click the picture above for a higher resolution version of the photo.

Interested in building a Theremino-based system yourself?  Check out Theremino's website, and especially this page with more info on building a theremin, schematics, and the 3D model for the case.

New Hybrid Theremin from Moog

Announced at NAMM, Moog has release a new hybrid theremin combining heterodyne pitch generation and an analog synthesizer sound generator.  The Theremini.


Features include built in pitch correction, tuner, a speaker, and USB MIDI connectivity among several others.  With the pitch correction feature "making it impossible to play a wrong note", and the ability to set the pitch range of the instrument, this should be an interesting addition to the theremin community.  Listed at $319.00 it's already available for less from some authorized Moog dealers. Hopefully we'll get some "hands off" feed back from our members soon!
