  • Theremin World - Topic: What is the final verdict on the Theremini now that firmware 1.1.1 and the iPad app has been out in the wild for almost a year?
    recently in one of her theremin videos when she said that the Moog THEREMINI is great for simple melodies and to take to parties because it is fun and has a built in speaker Speaking as president of the Old Dead Composers Theremin Association I neither like it nor dislike it All I can say is that it is of no use for the kind of music I play dead guy stuff because of its latency problem This is something that is inherent in the hardware and that no amount of firmware updating is going to be able to fix something Thierry Frenkel pointed out when the theremini was first introduced This is probably why Carolina said the instrument is great for simple melodies If you attempt faster more difficult precision passages with larger intervals the instrument s digital sampling rate can t keep up with the speed of your gestures It s the same feeling you get when you want to pass someone on the highway and you ve got the pedal to the floor but your car is just barely chuggin along The instrument is probably fine for FX experimental avant garde and other genres that do not require the kind of precision control that the works of old dead composers demand The most important thing for a beginner thereminist is to know exactly where you want to end up before you start out Clara Rockmore link Report Post Posted 1 1 2016 5 31 27 PM 4 rkram53 From Northern NJ USA Joined 7 29 2014 threads posts I think everyone would agree that the best thing anyone can do is simply try them before you buy if you can If you have no music store that has them near you in this day and age all anyone has to do is web order from a reputable company that takes it back For those that do not use www Sweetwater com you should check them out I only order from them for 15 years now They assign a sales person to you so you get personal service and they get to know your history they take things back without hassle and you can arrange for a credit card that lets you pay interest free over 6 months on most everything and frequently they extend that for a lot of things to 24 or even 36 months I admit I ve bought a lot more stuff than I might otherwise have because of this so be careful So if you want a true theremin with full CV functionality and you buy a Theremini because it is 100 150 less than what you want I would definitely say save up for what you want I am really hoping that Thierry s new creation will have CV outs In any case I m starting to save up for that What Carolina should do is put out a video that shows her playing the Etherwave and the Theremini as best she

  • Theremin World - Topic: Theremin vs. Haken Continuum
    EaganMatrix engine I do believe this can be a very interesting way of using the Theremini Right hand can be playing while the sound is routed through the AES input of the Continuum and then the fingerboard can be set up to send MIDI volume and other theremini control parameters while playing I bet you I can get a wider and more natural volume profile this way I finally tried connecting the Continuum to Omnisphere tonight Having some issues getting the Continuum s MIDI connection for the Editor working simultaneously with the MIDI connection required to drive Cubase running Omnisphere plugins Ed Eagan has a very nice video that shows how to do it with Logic Pro but I need to use Cubase I ll post how to do that when I figure it out But I found that I can use the editor to set a continuum patch to play Omisphere then disconnect the editor and run the Continuum through the MIDI interface I use to connect to Cubase and it works fine What fun The most important thing is to match the pitch bend of the continuum to Omnisphere have to limit it to 24 for Omnisphere Then set Y and Z to CCs or controller values that you want to map things to in Omnisphere as the video illustrates Finally you need to load up the Omnisphere patches you want up to 8 channels worth so set the Continuum up to Polyphony 8 But I find it s a bit confusing to map so many channels to fingers though you can get some interesting things going on when every finger plays a different sound and changing ordering as your finger s polyphony change though there are different settings for finger polyphony priority Better to just clone all 8 channels to channel 1 in Omnisphere to start so you can easily play polyphonically on the same sound to get used to playing and testing Omnisphere sounds Then you can split the keyboard and play Omnisphere with Continuum sounds etc Very flexible controller This opens up a whole new sonic world for the Continuum that I can see is going to let me create some very interesting backgrounds and let me do a lot of experimenting as well Of course you can connect the continuum to any MIDI source you want as well Here s just a bit of noodling using a continuum playing Omnisphere lines along with the Etherwave running through a PSP N2O Vocal format patch theremin is the vocal sound you hear I can see I m going to lose a lot of sleep playing around with all this https soundcloud com rk53 1 continuumomnisphere theremin test link Report Post Posted 1 1 2016 5 52 35 PM 15 rkram53 From Northern NJ USA Joined 7 29 2014 threads posts By the way another nice thing you can do here because every Omnisphere patch can have an A and B sound component both totally configurable not
