Theremin Synthesizer

Moog Claravox Centennial Theremin von vorne

Moog celebrates a rare anniversary with the Claravox Centennial Theremin. The only electronic musical instrument that can be played without contact, it was first presented in the USA in October 1920 by the Russian Lev Termen (aka Leon Theremin) and now looks back on a 100-year history. Once called the "Aerophone," the instrument consists of a box containing the technology and two antennas. The curved, horizontal antenna controls the volume, while the straight, vertical antenna controls the pitch of the built-in tone generator. Born in 1911, Clara Rockmore gained access to the theremin as a young woman and proved to be a true virtuoso on this exceptional instrument. Moog dedicates this anniversary synthesizer to her name and at the same time refers to the 100-year history of the theremin, several decades of which are also closely linked to company founder Robert "Bob" Moog. Musically, the theremin is not so easy to place. True experts play a theremin as artfully and tonally to the point as a violin, those who love whale song and settings of old science fiction and scary movies will look at the instrument from the experimental point of view.

The most complete theremin ever.

In Traditional mode, the sound is generated by an analog oscillator that can be smoothly faded from sine to triangle. The Modern mode, on the other hand, uses a wavetable oscillator. The wavetables can be stepped through manually with the wave control. By the way, in Modern mode the quantizer can also be activated, which moves the played tones to even notes. The selected oscillator is then subtly processed with a resonance-free lowpass filter and a simple but effective equalizer (brightness). Finally, the signal enters an analog BBD delay, which tends to color at higher feedback values and adds a charismatic stamp to the overall sound. The round antenna controls the volume of the internal VCA s, the upstanding antenna plays the pitch of the oscillator. The response of each antenna is finely adjustable. Six memory locations for custom sounds can be assigned in the Claravox Centennial Theremin, and the instrument can also be edited via app. The case of the beautifully crafted instrument is made of high-quality walnut wood. To match, we recommend the Claravox Stand, a tripod stand made of the same wood, designed exclusively for the CCT.
