Nano Aetherphone II

The Nano Aetherphone II is a MIDI controller designed (just like his predecessor) to re-invent and celebrate the Theremin on its 100th anniversary..

The characteristics of the Nano Aetherphone are devised to offer artists the same sound possibilities of the Theremin, while also guaranteeing a wider range of options in terms of stage mobility and performance.

The interface works as a digital and compact instrument, and it can be personalized according with the artist’s needs and ways of making music. The design is based on a tours shape that deforms a little in order to allow all the electronic components to fit smoothly and in a position that is ergonomic and elegant.

The default sound setting of the Aetherphone Nano consists of an array of Midi notes and a Midi CC. Use it to control any MIDI synth or music software of your choice.

Being based on open hardware and open software, the artist can disassemble the instrument and re-code the program to customize sensors calibration and other specifics. In fact, we encourage you to personalize the Nano Aetherphone II by shipping it with disassembly and hacking instructions.

The Nano Aetherphone II was developed exclusively with open source software and metodologies, and a special thanks goes to all the creative communities that work hard to make and spread the use of free and opes source tools .

A special thanks goes to Seeedstudio, that provided excellent quality PCB / PCBA service in the development and the production of this project
