This project is developing so well also thanks to your numerous smaller contributions. Philipp Kohl from Berlin Germany just sent me a corrected version of the German instruction. Patrick Coulombe from Montreal, Canada added DigiKey order numbers to the bill of materials for those who want to make their own boards. And Vector from Chengdu, China translated the instruction sheet for the Open.Theremin.RC into Chinese language and also sent me this nice picture of a spooky theremin. Thank you all, you are great.





Open Theremin with VarioCaps

To my surprise I got a theremin shield in my mail that looks just like the ones I know, just slightly different. Uwe Kutschki from Thüringen redesigned an Open.Theremin.UNO with variable capacitance diode to facilitate the initial tuning. A digital to analogue converter controlled by the arduino replaces the manual tuning. As this would be a great addition I am definitely looking into his prototype and will try to implement this in a future update. More on it in the Tweaks section.

Featured Builds

Today I uploaded many great Open.Theremin builds to the community part of the website. It's great to see the craft and creativity of all of you. I hope I got all the credits right. I also put some new videos you made on testing and playing the theremin here. By looking through the internet I found this thread on audiofanzine on the open theremin with lot's of nice pictures and comments - sympa!
