I am developing a software emulation of the theremin in Java and am trying to derive as authentic a sound as possible.
After reading up on this, I sort of understand the heterodyning concept that it appears the theremin sound is driven by.
My question is this: What frequencies of sine waves do I use to achieve this heterodyne effect?
It seems as if one sinewave needs to remain at one frequency and the other sinewave operates at variable frequencies.
Can anyone suggest what the static frequency should be and what range the variable frequencies of the other sinewave should be? Or... am I totally off base here?
Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.
