I just uploaded some more pictures of Open Theremin case builds here. It's great to see all your creative work and contributions. The Theremin shown below, a stand-alon system containing an active speaker and an amplifier was made by Virginia in collaboration with a friend. She wrote "the experience has been really smooth considering that we were total beginners in dealing with code and soldering" and "Open sourcing is the way to go to stimulate interest and bring knowledge into everyday life" - Thank you for the great feedback Virginia.

This weekend (6./7. May 2017) Open.Thermin will be at Make Munich, South Germany‘s biggest maker and do-it-yourself festival. My friends from the "Center for Alternative Coconut Research" invited me to join them on their booth in the "electronic innovators" sector. Looking forward to it and hope to see some of you there for a chat and some theremin playing. Booth No.11.

The Open.Theremin V3 is now official certified open source hardware according to Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) standards. You find the certification logo on every Open.Theremin PCB together with the unique identifier number (CH000001) that links you back to the documentation. Thank you for supporting open source hardware.


 

Control Voltage Output

I used the first days of the year 2017 to implement the control voltage output (CV) - an often requested feature. The Open.Theremin is a stand alone instrument that generates sounds in different waveforms when played. With the new software you can further expand the possibilities and use the theremin to control any sound synthesizer with an analogue control voltage input (CV). The instruction for CV is in the download section. The CV functionality will also be a topic at the Theremin Academy in Lausanne this February.


Biyi Amez successfully tested the new CV function.
