This theremine is incredibly easy to use and it is easy to get a good sound out of it. The controls allow for a good deal of variety in terms of the sound you can make and it is easy to explore what it can do. I don't have a manual for this but it is easy enough to use that I didn't need it.
The overall sound quality of this theremin is great and is one of the best theremins I have heard. You can get a variety of sounds on this, while on most theremins you can probably only get one tone. If you know what you are doing with a theremin, you can definitley get a full sound out of this. While I admit that I am a sucker for both Moog products and the theremin as an instrument, this is truly built well and has a great tone quality.
I first used this theremin about four years ago. I got really interested in the sound these make and wanted to explore it for myself. I have found that while not as cheap as a home made theremin, this is a high quality product with a variety of options. Having both the volume and pitch rod is really cool as it allows for further experimentation. The only other theremin out there that is better than this is the Etherwave Pro, but that will cost you three times the amount this will! While this isn't all that cheap for those just looking to play around, if you are really interested it is probably worth it because of the rich tone and the variety of controls that are present.
Doctor Feelgood's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple but moog oscillator!"
Like all Theremins it is not super easy to learn but against level ergonomics and trimmings, Moog has thought the trick.
This is a Moog oscillator and it shows. In any case much better than all that cheap theremin can be found.
Clearly it's worth it to have this type of instrument for Moog theremin perfectly redesigned the original and has developed a great tool without any frills. Typically the instrument that will be searched in 10, 20, 30 years.

saturax08's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple and effective."
Ultra simple. One branch is played.
It is very stable for a theremin. Once it is hot it does not move in agreement.
the best current sounds are produced by moog theremin and therefore this product.
In addition to the beautiful sounds (sawtooth or square) the finish is perfect and it is beautiful wood. It's a beautiful instrument and really what pleasure and magic of play. This is the most important after all.

Menestrel de malheur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" price to pay."
laborious at first, then we arrive at sympas.C out stuff is what a theremin, anything is possible, but it is the galley.
Sounds .... I think it's difficult to speak of it ... basically it is a "beep" that grinds at will.
Spellbinding, shrill, ghostly, drunk ....
First I found the body disproportionate even though it is very beautiful instrument, not taking MIDI on this model, the handling is difficult and sessions twist the brain, either during setup or while playing.
Basically this is not an instrument for me, even if it amused me for 5 minutes I do not feel able to spend hours sending me false notes of analog waves into the vessel.
But it is clearly a matter of taste, because the machine it, and very well made and has a good mouth.
So think carefully before buying, because it is still 385 euros the theremin, I almost immediately regretted me, I think it is expensive for what it is, then return the product and I'll pick up a good old synthesizer. It

very easy to install.
It is plugged into a mixer and you're done!!
I use it for 3 months .... it's still really galley mtriser ........ it takes patience !!!!!
Each makes its own sound ... it's a musical instrument from Entire!
I plug in a moog vocoder to change the sound .... has been very good sound!!

9703michel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
it is a beautiful object of curiosities I got a kit upstream, very simple to assemble.
It is a difficult instrument to play trs, but with a little patience and ears, we come to do great things. Of course it takes of the ear, not the instrument n'tant tempra.
In my case I use it in classical music, I master a few titles. I had a great time making me accompany my piano accompaniments numrique via midi.
Similar to the musical saw, it has the sound of Thrmin is undeniable! Let's play with the pots to get closer to what you seek. It's going to "bulk" of the cello has the musical saw, from no human voice, or the cat's throat after vidos, we just find the sound of the theremin clara rockemore to rule it a little like a cello, or that of Lidya Kavina that looks more like a musical saw (his most deaf). Unlike chris angel, I find it easy to vary the sound with the last 2 pots.
Great "toy" for pater friends, even at attention when not abused, at risk of earthquake, and to RVer night. If you become a virtuoso (as in the video that came with) you can do begins CF career, there are indeed some good thereminist trs!

Chris.angel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a 100% analog instrument (changes are also possible and even presented in the documentation of the manufacturer). It has 4 knobs (see below), a mono audio output and a connection type for the former DIN transformer (not universal).
The case, quite impossible, is black lacquered wood. Antennas, removable and fixed with nuts, are elegant in their chrome.
This model does not have MIDI.
In general, it comes with two video tapes useful.
The Theremin is an instrument in itself!
No way to say we'll make music by moving their hands in all directions after 1 hour of use. NO! It requires some learning, real learning. You move the right hand of a hair of a millimeter and you're next to the note. Worse than a violin
IT CAN BE USED addition of the instrument, its settings are very simple: one button for volume, one for pitch, one for the waveform and one for the tone (brightness). The latter two knobs are however not very effective. The waveform varies too significantly, the starting of the sinusoid, we approach the square without actually reaching it. In addition, the tone does not play its role more or less depending on the waveform (which is also logical).
Found with this instrument, the warmth of analog sound. Logic! Since this is such an instrument.
As noted above, the buttons do not have a drastic effect on the wave. It is sufficient enough to make subtle changes and adapt to the frequencies of other instruments for a better presence.
However, the sound of the Etherwave approach really that of the original Theremin. Beautiful, clear, warm. It is even more of a pleasure as it uitiliser Quer sending in different effects and simulators.
I fell, I confess!
I love this instrument, unique in its kind ... the instrument that puts the player (read: one that is currently using it) in the heart of the sound space. The music that emerges is the invisible, non-palpable. It is resent to arise in the soul of his musician.
After this note spiritually as subjective as constructive, let's get serious. As stated above: The Theremin is an instrument in itself that requires real learning. Although I have acquired in order to create sound and visual effects for concerts, just for that, it already implies a handling serious and rigorous.
But what a pleasure to use, drag the note to hear in the air as and when our hands are traveling in space! This instrument creates an inimitable pleasure to play!
