Introduced back in January at the Winter NAMM show, Moog Music has started shipping the Etherwave Pro, a fully professional theremin with greater range and portability. It is the latest development in Moog Music's fifty-year history of building Theremins.
The Etherwave Pro covers the entire musical pitch range, up to four octaves above middle C, in the three panel selectable pitch registers. In addition to its range, the Etherwave Pro is a visually stunning instrument, in a unique blend of futuristic and retro styling with striking vertical lines, nickel-plated and wooden knobs, and a tiger maple front panel.
A multi-position timbre selector offers a variety of musically rich waveforms, including the authentic traditional theremin tone. In addition, waveform, brightness, and filter panel controls enable musicians to balance the timbre to suit their musical requirements.
The Etherwave Pro's antennas conform to the traditional theremin standard. The pitch antenna is a straight vertical rod, while the volume antenna is a horizontal loop. Both right-handed and left-handed configurations of the Etherwave Pro's pitch and volume antennas to the musician's hand motions are carefully tailored for smoothness and uniformity. Player-accessible response adjustments are provided on the front panel. The Etherwave Pro's control voltage outputs allow it to interface with the Minimoog Voyager analog synthesizer or Moogerfooger analog effects modules.
The Etherwave Pro sells for $1495.00 and is now available from Moog Music.
