Please help! Etherwave acting very strange all of the sudden.

Post by tziporahkates » Thu Mar 11, 2021 7:09 pm

Hello!
l have been playing my Etherwave theremin for a bit over a year now. l have never had this issue before.
When l go to tune my theremin, and the pitch knob is turned all the way to the left- zero beat becomes only a few inches away from the pitch rod. As l move away from the pitch rod (after zero beat) the pitch goes higher rather than lower. As l turn the knob to the right, the pitch goes higher but zero beat gets closer and closer to the pitch rod until its only about an inch away. The linearity seems very off too.
I have tried setting it up in different rooms, using different speakers or amps, moving all metal objects away, etc.
This came out of nowhere and feels honestly devastating. l have no idea how to fix it or what to do.
