EVPM1345 Etherwave Pro Volume Modification - Added by: Jason 12/10/2011
This module improves the volume response of the Etherwave Pro. Original Etherwave Pro theremins have what is called a snappy response. The softest audible sound is already quite loud, as silence is followed by a jump in volume from zero to a starting level of about -40dB. The consequences are not only a reduced dynamic range but also the impracticality of sophisticated expression at very low volume.
ESPE01 Etherwave Standard Pitch Extension - Added by: Jason 12/10/2011
This module adds about 2 octaves of range in the bass register, making the Etherwave theremin sound even lower than a double bass. The linearity improves considerably over the full pitch range.
