As for Clara Rockmore, she did have her custom Theremin made by Theremin himself and it was true that she would only play that unit. The backstory is Moog produced her album in the 1970s and he arranged to have film & video shot of her in the process. So they had established a working relationsh...

The Switched on Boxed set has a good amount of technical details and even outtakes. I see a 901, 2x 901A, 6x 901B for a total of 7 oscs + a self built Polyphonic Oscillator Bank in a 1968 photo Carlos' Moog got bigger as they years passed. Also the original oscs (900 series) were replaced with the u...

Wow that thing kinda looks like an old scale or something. pretty funky. the wood sides are great though so they can blend into the foogers. Don't know if i would be willing to spend that much on something that old. It's got a rating of like 2.7. sure has a heck of a lot of cv ins though That's one...

Yeah, i was talking about modulars. i mean obviously digital and analog have been together for awhile. I do all this stuff with guitar, not keyboard, because all of the digital midi guitar stuff doesn't really do it for me. i want to be able to get all the cool fat synth sounds but through a guitar...

So, what do you say Moog? This could be the revolutionary new step. A combination of Digital and Analog. Combining the best of both worlds. The awesome sound of analog and the ease of use of digital. Umm that IS more or less the new minimoog synth already is. The patch storage on that is digital, t...

The core of the matter is for every parameter you want to store your synth must have a CV input for it I was surprised and pleased that the moogerfoogers included control voltage inputs for most of the adjustable values. For instance control of resonance by voltage is something the original Moog mod...

Re: Theremin and harmful radiation?

I know this may seem like something a hypochondriac or health-paranoid person would ask, but I was thinking today about the possibility of Theremin use and carcinogenic radiation. Does anyone have knowledge on this subject and if there is any sort of real research done on this topic that could lead...

The Moog theremin was prominently featured in last summer's movie "Hell Boy". That's interesting. I'll have to listen again. To me it's not so prominant - but I only watched the DVD once. As for Williams endlessly imitating Herrmann, while I think Williams usually crafts a popular ideal of what Hol...

To add to the discussion, unofficially Pamelia Kurstin and I are doing our second live music score to a silent film (with no existing period score). She plays Theremin and I play what ever I can play on keyboards that goes well with her and the film. We played music for Murnau's "Faust" in March and...

Re: yup

yes sir, its a moog/realistic mg-1 (i have one too). ebay is littered with them as of semi-lately. you can probably snag an MG-1 for $325-$425 on ebay. It's a fun keyboard (the lowest-end "moog sound" you can get)... makes some really cool/nice sounds, but in my opinion, it's considerably 'thinner'...
