Iso Directional Inductive Oscillator Technology To Boggle Next Generation Thereminists
ASHEVILLE, NC – APRIL 1, 2011: 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 bare 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 designers carrying on the legacy of visionary founder, Robert Moog have announced the first major technical Theremin design advance in over 40 years. The PolyThereminâ„¢ 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 itâ€™s companion antennas. This revolutionary concept breaks the long held belief that the Theremin could
only be a monophonic instrument.

â€¢ PITCH – Rotary controls (5) independently adjusts pitch of each antenna.
â€¢ VOLUME â€“ Rotary control independently adjusts volume of each antenna (Note: reference to volume level not quantity
or artist I.Q.)
â€¢ WAVEFORM â€“ Rotary control adjusts audio output waveform
â€¢ BRIGHTNESS â€“ Rotary control adjusts audio output brightness (sound not luminescence)
â€¢ ANTENNA CONNECTORS â€“ (5) Threaded for easy disassembly, washing & shipping
