Thanks to a great contribution by theremin engineer Thierry Frenkel all OpenTheremin V3 can now be software updated to High Definition Audio with 16 bit dynamic volume control.
He notes: I played through my entire repertoire for two hours last night and couldn't stop. As if it were a completely new instrument.
Thank you Thierry.

Vladimir Preobrazhenskiy from Russia, Nizhniy Novgorod shared this heart warming story with me: "A little while ago, my friends musicians were having a gig, and a little boy approached them afterwards. The boy looked very vivid and involved with music, and the boy kind of charmed them. One problem, when being a toddler, he had lost all fingers on his right arm (by an accident), hence almost no way he could play any music. Eventually, an idea sparked, why couldn't he learn to play the theremin? Surprisingly, this idea highly resonated among the local musicians, we did some arrangements, delegated the hardware part to me, and finally, arranged the charity gig to hand the instrument to the boy and to raise some money to cover the instrument, and maybe the classes. The said gig occurred yesterday, and this all went very well and warm." Thanks for making this happen and sharing with me, Vladimir.
