Moog Music announced that it is now shipping the Etherwave Pro, a professional theremin. Called the best-sounding theremin ever by Bob Moog, he says “The Etherwave Pro will set a new standard for design and workmanship for electronic instruments.”
It is intended for use for the stage and studio.
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 outstanding musicality and range, the Etherwave Pro is visually appealing, blending futuristic and retro styling with 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 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, and retails for $1,495. Units are now shipping. For more information, go to www.moogmusic.com.
