Thereminist Lydia Kavina, first taught by Léon Theremin himself, gives us great tips and tricks for playing the wonderful new Moog Theremini. If you’re just getting started with the Theremini, make sure to check it out! Want more info? See below!
The Moog Theremini is an affordable modern re-imagination of the classic Theremin, which anyone can learn to play – it has:
• User friendly pitch assist correction with selectable scales and root note, so you can’t play a wrong note! You can also turn this off for classical theremin glissando sounds, or just dial it back for partial correction as you improve your technique.
• 32 different sounds on-board, covering a range of basses, lead sounds, classical theremin tones and much more.
• Adjustable stereo ping-pong delay built right in, for wonderful ethereal sounds right out of the box!
• Built in tuner gives live visual feedback of currently playing note, showing how close you are to hitting the note to help learn pitch and scales.
• Built in speaker for instant playback anywhere.
• Headphone output (which mutes the speaker) for practising!
• Stereo 1/4″ audio outputs to connect Theremini to audio interfaces, looping pedals, stereo systems, multitrack recorders or anything you like!
• Single Pitch CV output w/ selectable range, so you can connect it to analogue synthesizers and use the Theremini as a wild CV modulation source.
• 21 user selectable scales and user-adjustable root note selection (including chromatic)
• User selectable note range: choose the highest note and lowest note (stored per preset), so it can be set up as you prefer
• Removable pitch antenna – built in storage compartment on bottom-side for easy storage and transportation (carry bag sold separately)
• Built in 3/8” Mic stand and Camera stand adaptor.
• High quality rubberised feet so it can be placed on a table.

All original patches. Mostly bass, arpeggio and some sound FX stuff. The only sound is the Sub37 and sometimes the Volca Beats (off camera) mixed on an Alesis Multimix8. No effects added to the synth recording.

This is the power of modularity with the immediacy of a self contained instrument. Detailing the underlying philosophies and design goals that culminated in the realization of the Sub 37 Bob Moog Tribute Edition paraphonic analog synthesizer, this video explores the vast modulation possibilities and sequencing options available via the front panel.
This video contains complex harmonic content that may be difficult for your computer speakers or phone to reproduce.
We recommend using a high quality set of headphones for the proper listening experience.
Moog’s new affordable mono seems to be the bee’s knees. We take a look at the SUB 37 Tribute edition.
For review notes: http://www.sonicstate.com/news/2014/1…
“The Sub 37 feels like a properly grown up synthesizer,” notes Batt, “with really musical parameter scaling – and is well worth the asking price.”
The Sub 37 Tribute Edition is a limited edition (2-note) paraphonic analog synthesizer. It’s built on the Sub Phatty sound engine, but its panel features 40 knobs, 74 switches and has a dedicated LCD display.

In this tutorial we will be adding a button controlled vibrato effect using a photoresistor, LED, and Arduino microcontroller. By using an external circuit for vibrato we are able to free up our LFO for other forms of modulation.

In this project we will use a 555 timer to create a second square wave LFO. By adding a second LFO we can create much richer textures and more complex sounds.
In this project we will be integrating an accelerometer to measure movement in three dimensions with our Werkstatt using an Arduino microcontroller. An accelerometer is a device that measures acceleration in three dimensions and outputs a corresponding voltage.

At the 2014 NAMM Show, Moog introduced the Theremini – a new take on the theremin that offers traditional analog control, combined with an advanced synthesis engine. Now they have added an editor for it, details below:
Unlock your Theremini’s previously unseen world of sonic features with The Moog Theremini Advanced Software Editor. This editor puts the power of sound design in your hands by allowing you to access new layers of the Theremini’s synthesis engine. Easily craft new and exciting sounds for your Moog Theremini, re-sculpt existing presets, and share your sonic creations with others. The Moog Theremini Advanced Software Editor also includes an exclusive library of new presets to kick-start your creative process.
NOTE: This application does not make sound by itself. It is an editor librarian app for the Moog Theremini. To use this app, the user must have a Lightning to USB host adapter (for iPads with Lightning connector) or the Apple Camera Connection Kit (for iPads with 30pin connector) and a mini USB cable.

Gear used: Waldorf Blofeld and MicroQ, Arturia Microbrute through Eventide H9, Elektron Machinedrum, Akai mpc500 as main sequencer, Korg Ms2000, Clavia Nord Modular G2 and DSI Tetr4. Hardwire DL7 and RV8 were used on the Tetra.
A funky moog jam. Drums are 100% Tempest, I also added a moog bass line, some rhodes sounds off the nord, and a clav type patch off the prophet 08. The main moog lead is going through an MXR carbon copy.

I don’t wanted to show wich one is better – but how good they play together
this was a special wish from someone of the german forum for better comparing the two…
