Moog introduces the Etherwave PolyTheremin 01/04/11
Here's the details directly from Moog...
Introduced in 1928, the Theremin is one of the earliest and most widely known electronic instruments. Played by artists manipulating the pitch and volume of invisible sound waves radiated from a single antenna with their hands, Theremin music has distinguished hit records from such diverse artists as The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin Clara Rockmore and Linkin Park.
Today (April 1st), Moog Music engineers carrying on the legacy of visionary founder, Robert Moog have announced the first major technical Theremin design advance in over 40 years. The PolyTheremin™ incorporates bleeding edge IsoDirectional Inductive Oscillator Technology, to isolate space around five individual pitch antennas thus enabling each to be played simultaneously (finger-by-finger) without interference from it's companion antennas. This revolutionary concept breaks the long held belief that the Theremin could only be monophonic instrument.
The PolyTheremin ships with Dorit Chrysler's instructional video "Playing the PolyTheremin is Even Easier Than Playing a Monophonic Theremin." Features:
POWER Rocker Switch – On and Off AC power control
AUDIO OUT – Standard 1/4" phone jack delivers line level output to any compatible amplifier
PITCH - Rotary controls (5) independently adjusts pitch of each antenna.
VOLUME – Rotary control independently adjusts volume of each antenna (Note: reference to volume level not quantity)
WAVEFORM – Rotary control adjusts audio output waveform
BRIGHTNESS – Rotary control adjusts audio output brightness (audio not luminescence)
Power supply included: Order 110v for use in US or Canada or 220v for use in Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. Also available in retro steam or (clean) coal engine power source models. Pricing and Availability:
