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

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

pitch field with a rich sound. Solid state tuning.
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.

more than a plain digital whistle!
foolish will tell you it is the way the theremin is played that
develops the interesting voice...
