Vision the theremin was revealed as art. There were no
antennas, dangling wires or cords on the floor, just stand
alone simplicity revealing beauty. The pitch rumbles low,
yet sings with the angels. Arm and hand movements control
the range of volume, octave change and pitch. It is
interesting to me that a beautiful pitch is easier to play.
It is as if the theremin finds joy in expressing herself.
This theremin is reality and affordable for those who wish

promising possibilities for that thicker angelic bright sound. The same pcb used to get my TW Altermen
sound would readily adapt for this. It would be a bass
mod buffer with angelic wings.
Then switch back and forth for the EWS whistle or the
sound of Clara. If you are interested in this idea start a new
thread in the RS Chat
and title it EtherWave
Did you know you can buy a new stuffed EWS
Board for $96 and for another $100 you could have the
sound of Clara Rockmore. Don't reinvent what is already available. With
the introduction of the new Moog Theremini the EWS should
start showing up used at bargain prices. Avoid
the earlier Big Briar version.

Ideal Pitch Linearity found in the
analog theremin Altermen will one day be the only acceptable norm. All
theremins operating their pitch oscillators around 922 kHz will benefit from the
Thin Wire Antenna concept. Don't do this on your EtherWave Standard it
won't work. A properly tuned EWS has good linearity.
I bread boarded and am evolving an analog

When you have true pitch linearity
the very low notes play a crisp vibrato. Transistor theremin
oscillators can give you a comparable tube osc sound but not
exactly that of the original tube/valve theremins.

Research was done by Christopher over 10 years, the theremin is much
more than a plain digital whistle!
foolish will tell you it is the way the theremin is played that
develops the interesting voice...
without mentioning you need to have the proper sound first."
