Moog Music today introduced the Etherwave Theremin, a updated version of their classic Etherwave design.
The Etherwave fills out Moog’s theremin line with a powerful mid-tier design, complementing their more affordable Theremini and their flagship Claravox.
The new Etherwave Theremin builds on Bob Moog’s legendary theremin designs, with a wide range of new features:
- Improved bass response and stability in the lowest registers
- Updated antenna connections to enable quick assembly and easy removal for travel
- Quick-release mic stand adapter for attaching and detaching the instrument from mic stands
- Mute control for setting the instrument into a standby mode or used for “pitch preview” via headphones
- CV output integration from Etherwave Plus (Gate Out, Pitch Out, Vol. Out) for connecting with other modular, Eurorack, and CV-controlled instruments
Here’s a live performance by Austin-based electronica group The Octopus Project, performing their original track I Saw the Bright Shinies in the Moog Sound Lab:
Yvonne Lambert, Spencer Stephenson, Toto Miranda, and Josh Lambert reimagine their 2007 song using vintage and modern Moog synthesizers: Moog One, Prodigy, Matriarch, Grandmother, Mother-32, DFAM, Subharmonicon. The Etherwave Theremin is used both as a lead instrument and a CV controller for the Moog Matriarch paraphonic semi-modular analog synth.
Moog has also released an EP, Lost in the Ether, composed and performed by French thereminist Grégoire Blanc, that showcases Etherwave Theremin:
Moog also plans a series of interactive online workshops, for registered Etherwave Theremin owners, featuring theremin superstar Dorit Chrysler.
