It has a waveform control! Is it a theremin or a synth? :D

I wish I could get one... moog jsut released it (finally). I havn't palyed one yet, but I have heard that they are very nice. Also, mind you, all theremins worth squat have a waveform control! =P
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused

Well, it SAYS it's a theremin ... twice :) ... so I'm guessing that it's a theremin. It's probably a theremin AND a synth.

moogerfoogers are moog's stomp boxes. They are really cool (I have a lowpass filter). I think they have a lowpass filter, a ring mod, a phaser, a delay thingie, and a MuRF (Whatever that is). I'm not sure of the exact technical definition of a synthesizer, but I don't think the etherwve pro is one. You can adjust the waveform from sine to square and adjust the overtones and a filter, but I don't think it's technically a synthesizer.

I knew it was a theremin, but I did not know theremins had waveform controls :P
But I discovered after reading WIKIPEDIA that Theremins were the first synths!!!

Using the definition that a Synth is something that generates sound eletronically...

Theremins are synths!! :D They are probably the lowest thing on the synth evolutionary ladder (and that's not a dis) but they are essentially one oscillator synths. Actually, IIRC they have two occilators and what you hear is a difference signal from the two of them but in terms of cound they are one occilator synths, but with no envelpoes, filters or other good stuff.

I just wasn't sure because I once read an article that said a synth technically had to have an envelope follower. They were definitely the first (important) electronic musical instrument ever.

Hmmmm- you could be right. I'm lazy- wanna Google that??

(That does beg the question: if you have a modular synth, and you do a patch that does not use the envelope generators. is it no longer a synthesizer? :D :D)

Here's the answer:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthesizer

And I just noticed I've been writing "Synthetizer" for a century, because in portuguese it's "sinteTizador" argh...

And, Fred, by Theremin's definition, you're right! A "pure" eletronically sound, not a synth :P
