I may just have to rescue that old Hammond from my brother.


Oscar, I will check out the talk box plans when I get the chance.

I played around with a funnel and some tubing a while back but didn't get great results.

Maybe these plans will show me where I went wrong.

You might also want to check out Michael Evans'
work.
With his home made tube speaker, he could also put the end of the tube in his mouth and modulate the timber that way as well.
It's a very strange and totally organic sound.

I just picked up a Rocktron Banshee Talk Box the other night, kind of on the spur of the moment, but it's a blast! I put up a couple videos of me attempting to use it with the Theremin.

This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq6phNy6Hnw) is me messing around with it, seeing what cool things I could get it to do.

This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYpQi3YzwOs) is me playing 'Rudolph, The Red-Nose Reindeer' with it.

Talk box? Guess I'm culturally deprived; will have to learn more about what it is. The videos should certainly help.

I also always wondered about a talkbox hooked through a Theremin, no reason why it should not work. A "Talking Theremin" how creepyu would that be?

I was planning on building a talk box for my brother, they are fairly straight-forward. I will try and look up the plans.
