Swiss thereminist Coralie Ehinger (aka Therminal C) shared this theremin demo of the les diffYUseurs – a device that emulates the sound & effect of the diffusers (loudspeakers) created by Maurice Martenot for the Ondes Martenot.
The effect was designed by Yves Usson, aka Yusynth.
Here’s what Ehinger has to say about the unique effect:
I have been testing a prototype Yves sent me with my theremin. Yves did add some additional effects to this pedal – i am only showing a few in the video:
D1 – principal diffuser
D2 – resonance diffuser
D3 – metallic diffuser
D4 – Palme diffuser
Tremolo & reverb Bell
Additional effects are: chorus, flanger, pitch shift, pitch echo, transpose, a second palme diffuser, a second metallic diffuser.
A few other people also got a diffYUseurs and after our feedback, Yves will make some adjustments and offer a totally “theremin friendly” diffYUseurs.
les diffYUseurs will be available at the next Theremin Academy in Lausanne in February 2019.
