Moog EW-THEREMINI-01-01 overview

  • 1Description

The MOOG Theremini is designed for practice, studio recording, and live performance. The instrument is played without physical contact by using hand gestures to change volume and pitch by controlling the distance to the device's antennas.

To assist in learning to play the instrument, the Theremini features a built-in tuner that allows you to see what note you are playing and whether the note is sharp, flat, or in tune. A 0 to 100% assistive pitch correction knob allows you to adjust the playing difficulty level of the device by automatically keeping the sound in pitch to a user-defined scale or root note. At 100%, the assistive pitch correction will make it impossible to play a wrong note. At 0%, no pitch correction will be applied. The tuner and assistive pitch correction functions can be used in conjunction to educate the performer on the range of the instrument and develop proper playing technique.

Additional controls include a preset knob that provides 32 wavetable-based sounds, root and scale buttons for selecting a scale and root note, controls for setting and recalling a playing range, and a variable stereo ping-pong delay for individual presets.

For listening, the unit includes a front-panel 1/8" stereo headphone jack with a volume control, as well as a built-in speaker that is muted when the headphone jack is engaged. Two 1/4" audio outputs enable connection to an audio interface, mixer, or other equipment for studio recording or live performance. A single-pitch CV output with selectable range enables external connection to a sequencer or synthesizer using a control voltage signal, and a mini-USB port allows the device to communicate with other devices over MIDI.

The unit's pitch antenna can be removed and placed in a built-in storage compartment on the bottom of the device. Integrated rubberized feet prevent the unit from slipping on the playing surface, and a built-in 3/8" microphone stand connector allows you to put the instrument on a stand. Alternatively, you can use the included camera stand adaptor for placing the unit on a tripod. An amplifier, case, and stand are available and sold separately.

    Moog EW-THEREMINI-01-01 reviews

    Theremini is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Versatile Instrument I have to preface remarks by saying I am a potential Theremin player; not yet an actual player. The Theremini looks like it will be the perfect learning tool in that regard. Setup is easy and it worked right out of the box. The 20+ different voices are an excellent addition to the traditional Theremin sounds; for learning I think I will like the setting that plays discrete notes until I get to the point where I can control the sounds more accurately. The one thing I would suggest to Moog or B&H would be to include a 3/8 to 5/8 adapter for a mike stand. The device has a 3/8 female connection but virtually all mike stands have 5/8 male connections. Getting a converter was easy but it really should be included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a revolutionary product. i have to scratch my head when i read some of the reviews about this product. some theremin purest's think this is a lesser theremin ? the old theremin's have one sound and one sound only.the theremini has 32.the old theremin's have to be calibrated by hand tools .the theramini is calibrated electronically. it has all the tools to tweak your sound to you own desired effect ..comparing the theremini to the old theremin is like� a model A ford to a modern sports car. there's already a girl on line who's gained much success and tours the country playing her theramini so if you want to believe the nay sayers you go right ahead and get a one

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most fun you can have without touch! Another quality moog instrument. The choice of voices adds to the fun and the capability to choose scale, root note and amount of pitch correction makes it playable out of the box, and allows the player to hone their technique without frustration. Internal speaker makes it fun and available to play without much set up. It could have been housed in a simple box, but instead it is in a spaceship housing that is theremin appropriate. I ordered mine in the winter after seeing reviews from NAMM, and it's been worth the wait.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift I bought this for my friend because we saw it on a show and thought it was great. It seemed like a great way to relax. It was ready to use right out of the box!! I would recommend this to anyone. Even as a beginner, my friend was able to enjoy himself. Yes, it will require some practice, but well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fast learning curve This is a very versatile instrument. I had not had it two weeks yet when I used it to premiere a new work which I wrote, featuring particular settings of the instrument and my strengths as a new user of it. The premiere was very successful, and I anticipate being inspired to create more original music on it as I get more familiar and proficient. A word to the wise, however: note that outputs are line-level and it will not go directly into an instrument amplifier. Get the necessary transformers up-front if you plan to plug into an amp on location.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Came From Outer Space Wow, what can I say. Ever since this thing shot out of the sky onto my front porch, leaving a flaming streak that could be seen from miles away, I haven't been able to step away from it. My girlfriend and I had our first fight over who got to play it next. At first we were concerned that it might hatch a small alien baby that would then eat and/or spawn with our cat but its friendly, warm, vintage tone quickly lulled us into a celestial trance of security. In all seriousness though... having never touched a theremin before, I can't imagine having a positive experience had I ordered any other model. Playing it traditionally is HARD, but all of the extra effects and features Moog threw into this shiny white escape pod make it a purely blissful experience from the moment you power it on. Some things I wish it had: - ability to be powered through USB - a little more weight to it (lighter than expected, slightly cheap feel) - ability to save patches natively (you need the app) - a way to modify settings more fluently, in a live setting Leave it to Moog to take a sound that's been around since the 20's and take it to the next 5 levels. Can't wait to start implementing this into my live performance. Highly recommended, for any musical talent levels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! I've always been interested in Theremins, so I decided to get the Theremini. I've read many articles stating how difficult they are to play, I'm glad this unit is very newbie friendly. You can control how the pitch antenna reads your hand position. You can choose to lock the pitch detection to a scale, with not much pitch drift in between notes, all the way up to the authentic Theremin experience of being able to glide through the notes in a scale. Set up and calibration of the unit was easy, the user manual is superbly written. There was a glitch in upgrading the firmware, even after following the directions to a T, but turning off the unit and turning it back on put me at the next step of the update process. It's like the Theremini is made for dummies like me! There is an iPad editor, and now a Mac/PC editor. Just plug in a mini USB cable, and you're set. I've not been able to DL the Mac version yet, so I'm just speaking about the iPad version. There are only a few patch locations on board, so the editor is essential if you want to load in your own sounds. The sound engine is based off of the Animoog, so it sounds very nice. There is a built in speaker so you can listen to what you are playing right away. Also there are built in FX, which help sweeten up the sound and makes this useful for sound design. There is a CV output, but I don't own any other equipment with CV inputs, so I cannot speak to the usefulmess of this. The unit is built nice, but it is VERY light, and I would be afraid to drop it for fear of breaking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastical Killer sounds and amazing options. You can instantly create wild, otherwordly sounds. MIDI allows you too control, embellish other tones. CV gives you access to sound and you can download the editor to save tones on your PC/MAC. It takes a bit of practice to really milk melodies but w/pitch correction and scale modes - you can still be creating in a flash.
