The Open.Theremin is a real, playable theremin music instrument with a big, active community. The theremin instrument is played with two antennas (included in this bundle), one to control the pitch and one for volume. The electronic design is based on two heterodyne oscillators, same principle as the original Theremin invented by Lev Theremin back in 1920. In this newest version 4.5 of the OpenTheremin, the Arduino compatible micro-controller is built in, pre-programmed and no soldering is required. The on board auto-calibration, linearisation and high quality digital to analog audio converter make this a real playable instrument (stand alone, does not require a computer to play). Four knob to adjust the antennas, sensitivity (Register) and wave form (Timbre).
The more than 10 years of experience in building good quality theremins lead to this new and improved design. Excellent linearity makes it a good instrument for learning how to play the theremin.
- One board design, pre-programmed, no soldering required
- 3D printed back cover makes this a stunning instrument
- Pitch and volume antenna with excellent linearity and digital auto-tuning (one button press)
- State of the art USB-C cable for powering, easy access side mounted connectors
- Sensor Button for mute and automatic calibration.
- 8 preprogrammed audio wave forms and 3 registers can be selected
- Two control voltage (CV) outputs for pitch and volume to connect to other devices
- Full size, removable antennas
- Very portable, can be powered by battery
- Tripod adjustable for ideal playing position
- Breakout connector for expansions.
Design by Danish designer Peter van der Beek (Design Academy Eindhoven)
