E Theremin – Electro Theremin

DesignByPaul
Vintage Electro–Theremin, Onassis Martino style synth.

This app is inspired by early classic slider controlled synthesisers such as the Ondes-Martenot, Trautonium and Tannerin/electro-theremin.

The E Theremin has two oscillators that generate a rich fat analogue tone, with a choice of 5 waveforms (saw, square, triangle, sine and theremin wave) octave shift. The E Theremin can achieve portamento, vibrato and quarter-tones with precise control.

– 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”.
