Pretty sure it's a theremin in this song...

It begins to fade in at about 1:51 in the song "Make Light" by Passion Pit.

It sure sounds like a theremin but I didn't see one in their set-up.

I'm going to resume my habitual role of Theremin Skeptic. The vibrato is so fast--and so absolutely regular in rate AND depth--that I'm sure it's one of the keyboard synths, using a patch with a fast, wide vibrato and ample portamento.

That's not a theremin. It is one of their keyboard synths or modules - possibly the Roland. I have a Roland that will make that type of sound.

I agree with coalport. It's a keyboard with pitch-bend, and vibrato wheels.

In fact, they even show a Roland keybard in some of the stills.

I have an old Kurzweil midi-board which has pitch and vibrato wheels.

There was absolutely no variation in the vibrato rates in the tune.
