This won't be for everyone (to say the least), but it's probably the most fun I've had playing in the last year or so :-)

bendra: I'm very happy that you're enjoying the G1ON too. 

I went through all one hundred preset patches and picked out ones that I might use, or might use parts of

Possible performance patches
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
C3: just a little echo and perhaps a tiny amount of chorus?
B1: possible useful Chorus
B3: Chorus + delay + Echo


Ones that sound like voices
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A3, E5, B9, J4, D2

Wacky Sounds
~~~~~~~~~~
A9, J2, C2, D8, C9, D1, E9, H0 H2, H3 H4, H5, H7, H9, H9

Things I might use parts of
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A4: to make a staccato sound
F0
G3

When I read the sad news yesterday about Ric Ocasek I made this recording; posting it hear in case someone is interested. Made with D2 (Talk Funk) filter:

I just used the A4 built-in patch -- "Down Heavy" to do a fun version of the guitar sound in "Smoke On The Water"

ahahah try this one!  what an insane sound for your theremin to make! 

you can skip the first effect though - you don't need that Delay function.

Me again! I'm now trying using the Autowah filter (with a preampt to reduce the volume to very low), and I'm really liking the result - to me sounds kind of like a buzzy old RCA theremin (maybe it's just me). 2 takes, 1 with filter, 1 without. Have a listen

(and no, I have no illusions about my playing skill)
