For over 60 years, Moog theremins have captured the imagination of players and audiences alike. Most recently over the last two decades, Moog's Etherwave Standard and Etherwave Plus have set the bar of performance theremin design. Now, the all-time highest selling theremin models get an update to become simply Etherwave Theremin.
- Improved bass response and stability in the lowest registers
- Updated antenna connections to enable quick assembly and easy removal for travel
- Quick-release mic stand adapter for attaching and detaching the instrument from mic stands
- Mute control for setting the instrument into a standby mode or for 'pitch preview' via headphones
- Control voltage integration (pitch CV out, volume CV out and gate out) for connecting with modular, semi-modular and eurorack synthesizers
With no reeds to blow, no keys to press and no strings to pluck, Etherwave Theremin defies all expectations of a musical instrument. It is instead played in a manner that seemingly conjures music from the ether, simply through the motion of the body when close to the instrument. Throughout history, performers have achieved unprecedented expression by mastering this unique connection between the hands, the body, the environment and the instrument.
The theremin's elegant simplicity and unparalleled expressivity fueled Bob Moog's lifelong love affair with the instrument, from building his first theremin at age 14 to completing his final design at age 70. Today, Etherwave Theremin carries on this legacy with a refined design for the modern theremin performer.
Combining analog playability with unprecedented performance potential, Moog Etherwave Theremin provides an accurate five-octave pitch range and balanced spacing between notes for a highly sophisticated degree of playability. Updated analog electronics have been used to create Bob Moog's classic theremin circuit design while improving bass response in the lower registers.
The refined cabinet features hand-finished hardwood and two quick-release plated-brass antennas. Additionally, rear-panel I/O connections and a detachable mic stand adapter ensure quick setup on the go.
Easily accessible front-panel controls allow for spontaneous changes in timbre, and the antennas' response can be adjusted to suit any player and their environment (advanced users can go a step further via the calibration access panel on top of the instrument).
A front panel headphone output with dedicated volume control pairs with the addition of a mute button that silences the main audio output while leaving the headphone output active for privately adjusting timbre and tuning.
In addition, Etherwave Theremin can connect directly to and control your other modular, semi-modular or eurorack synthesizer systems via control voltage. Control your synthesizers or effects while playing the theremin by patching into Etherwave Theremin's 1/8" pitch CV, volume CV and gate CV jacks for a completely new performance experience.
For the novice enthusiast or the seasoned professional player, Etherwave Theremin offers exceptional sonics, playability and control to take your sound into new dimensions.
