Doepfer A-178 Theremin Control Voltage Source
Doepfer A-178 Theremin Control Voltage Source

NoiseBug Price : $110

The Doepfer A-178 Theremin Control Voltage Source is not in stock.

Manufacturer Description:
Theremin module for generating a variable control voltage by approaching/removing hand to/from an antenna. The distance range is about 30 cm. Additionally the module is equipped with a Gate output with adjustable threshold level. Controls/Inputs/Outputs: antenna input, offset (knob for zero adjust), 2 x CV out, 2 x LED (for CV control positive/negative and zero offset adjust).

To simulate the original Theremin two A-178, a VCO (e.g. A-110) and a linear VCA (e.g. A-130 or A-132) are required. But of course the A-178 can be used to control other functions in the A-100 (e.g. filter frequency, modulation depth and/or speed, tempo, attack/decay time and so on). The CV output voltage of the A-178 can range - according to the setting of the front panel controls - from -10V...+10V. The gate output switches from 0V to about +10V.

Applications:
controlling any voltage controlled parameter of the A-100, e.g. pitch or pulswidth (VCO A-110), loudness (VCA A-130/131/132), panorama (A-134), filter frequency or resonance (A-120/121/122/123), phasing (A-125), frequency shift (A-126), resonance peaks (A-127), envelope parameters (A-141/142), tempo (A-147)
triggering of A-100 activities via gate with adjustable threshold, e.g. starting an envelope (A-140/141/142), Start/Stop of a sequence (A-155), any switching function (A-150/151)
Conversion into MIDI control change messages is possible with the A-192.

Remark: If two or more A-178 are used the distance between the modules/antennas should be at least 30 cm. Otherwise the antennas affect each other.
