Vintage Electro–Theremin, Onassis Martino style synth.
This app captures the magic of early classic slider controlled synthesisers such as the Ondes-Martenot (1928) Trautonium (1929) and Tannerin/electro-theremin (1950s)
The E Theremin has three oscillators that generate a rich fat analogue tone, with a choice of 4 waveforms (saw, square, triangle and sine) octave shift and amp control. The E Theremin can achieve portamento, vibrato and quarter-tones with precise control. 4 presets allow you to store your sounds and jump quickly between them during performance.
– Ideal for professionals looking for an alternative to the keyboard controlled synth.
– Great for anyone interested in synthesizers, particularly early analogue.
In 1928 Maurice Martenot created one of the first electronic musical instruments, entitled; the Ondes-Martenot, the prerunner to the theremin, similar in sound but with a very different type of user interaction, an inspiring slider on a cord was used. Later in the 1950s Paul Tanner invented the Tannerin a.k.a. Electro Theremin. The Tannerin used the same slider controls as the Ondes-Martenot to control pitch. The Tannerin went on to play a large role in records such as The Beach Boys “Good Vibrations”.
- Three oscillators (osc2 unison)
- 4 waveforms
- 3 octave slide control
- Fat analogue sound
- Jump between 4 user presets

S T E E L B E R R Y C L O N E S has been busy preparing for the release of their new full length album ‘Retrosonic Voices’ out in Q1-2013. As a teaser the band has now released their second single from the album on SoundCloud called Victims of fashion.
Just as with their previous single Sweet sexy virgin, Steelberry Clones continues to explore things that really matters, and this time around they are dissecting the world of fashion and the sometimes harsh working conditions these young people end up going through. The song is an uptempo electro pop song with strong synth bass beats and smooth synth sounds. Steelberry Clones has always tried to do a blend of music that deals with subjects that concerns us, paired with retrospective quests into things that intrigues them, such as space, 1950′s, technology advancements, historical events and personal experiences.
The new release “Victims of fashion” will be accompanied with a video in the coming weeks. The new album “Retrosonic Voices” is due next year and will combine the best of modern electronic pop music with old-school sounds from the past 30 years of electronic music.
