    Question theremin samples

    Hello all,

    does anyone know where I can find some theremin samples, or a virtual instrument that does a good job of imitating a theremin?

    Thanks,

    Christiaan

    Spectrasonics Atmosphere, along with the loads of other sounds in the library, has a pretty cool theremin too. I've used on a couple tracks and like the sound. If that's really the only sound you are looking for, then Atmosphere is kind of an expensive way to get it but it includes a huge library of great synth pads, atmospheres, leads, basses, polysynths... Anyway, you might want to check it out.

    The Arturia Moog Modular has a downloadable theremin patch thats very convincing.. rich

    Spook Keys is a lot of fun (and free). Windows only though.

    Ditto on the Atmosphere sample. But there's a free one on the kvr site that isn't shabby. You'll need some good reverb with it, but you can make it ooze fairly easily,

    I've got a friend with a theramin, slide whistles and a musical saw. To him discrete notes are for dweebs. Someday I'll have him over and track a few bars, if I ever have the need. I won't even think about ever sampling him though!

    Just to get you started:
    http://theremin.info/

    And i had a lot of fun with this http://www.theremin.info/download-file-5.html
    The Virtual Theremin aims to mimic the Theremin using just a computer and a cheap web camera. It tracks the hands of a performer, using image processing techniques, around a picture of a Theremin superimposed on the video stream. The positions of the hands are then converted to sound that mimics the response of the Theremin.
    Best regards,

    Wow!

    thanks for the great options. I was looking for a good virtual synth so I may look into Atmosphere. I was on the verge of buying a theremin, but as it is for 1 cue in a movie that I am doing on spec, I decided against it (but someday!).

    For the time being, I may try to imitate it using the synths that came with Cubase.

    Now, does anyone know where you can get samples of a Trautonium?

    Thanks again,

    Christiaan

    I am using a free VST plugin called Gargoyle. You can get it here:

    look under the free synts section. Great for strange horror scifi sounds

    Here is an example of it used in a piece I created for a cartoon I am working on:
