One of the earliest electronic instruments, the theremin is celebrating its 100th anniversary—and now, Moog's Claravox Centennial, named after the virtuosic Clara Rockmore, takes the technology and brings it into the 21st century.
Robert Moog got his start selling theremins, and they have long been a staple of the Moog line of products. The Claravox Centennial is a professional-grade instrument deserving of the Moog legacy, providing a perfect combination of classic and modern features.
Select between modern and traditional modes to get two different feels. The traditional mode offers the classic feel of a theremin with a analog heterodyning oscillators. The modern mode adds pitch quantization and DSP oscillators with a selection of waveforms and wavetables to the mix. Based on the classic Etherwave Pro circuitry, the waveshaping and filters provide a rich sound.
Change the response curve of both the pitch and volume antennas to tailor them to your playing style. An onboard BBD delay circuit adds a new dimension to your playing and is excellent for sweeping soundscapes. Connect to both CV and MIDI devices using the inputs and outputs located on the theremin's rear. Save and recall presets using the front panel storage and the Claravox Centennial software, which adds control over even more settings. Dive into the instrument that you play without touching it, which has captivated the imagination for 100 years.
