While the traditional theremin took a great deal of skill and dexterity to play, the Theremini employs assisted pitch quantization that allows a player to adjust the instrument to their playing proficiency, so every note is always scaled perfectly. In fact, Moog claims that it's impossible to actually play a wrong note in certain setups, which means the player can spend more time on being more expressive with vibrato and level (and the built-in delay).
The Theremini contains a built-in tuner to provide real-time visual feedback of each note played, as well as the proximity to the pitch, making it easier to learn how to play. It also contains a number of presets that enables you to select from 32 wave or wavetable based patches, so you can draw on some non-conventional theremin sounds as well.
The unit comes with a built-in speaker, two 1/4" audio outputs, a headphone jack, a pitch CV output, a mini USB jack, MIDI in and out, and can be mounted on a mic stand or camera stand with an adaptor.
The Theremini is priced at a very reasonable $319 and is built to order, so there is about an 8 week delivery time. Check out the Moog Theremini website and the video below.
