2009 Winter NAMM Show: Moog Music introduced the Etherwave Plus – an instrument that lets you control synthesizers and effects while playing the Theremin. It’s also a stand-alone CV (Control Voltage) controller.
The Etherwave Plus’ CV control signals are proportional to the pitch and volume of the Theremin’s audio signal and can be connected to the pitch and volume CV inputs of a Little Phatty or other analog synthesizer for a new way to interact with a synth.
The Etherwave Plus has all the features and tone of Moog’s standard Etherwave Theremin and is housed in a naturally finished hardwood cabinet.
The “Plus” features include:
- Pitch & Volume CV Outputs – control a different CV parameter with each hand
- Gate Output – trigger envelopes and other events
- Pitch Preview/Headphone Output – with separate volume control, lets you hear your note before the audience does.
- Power LED – instant visual power status on dark stages
“The Etherwave Plus’ CV signals are not limited to pitch and volume control, so they can be routed to any CV destination for a new world of expression,” said Moog Marketing Manager Chris Stack. “Use it to control anything from the cutoff frequency of the Moog Guitar Ladder Filter to the LFO Amount on a Moogerfooger Ring Modulator to the stereo panning on a Minimoog Voyager.”
