Aetheremin - The first theremin for the BlackBerry PlayBook.
After reading many posts in this forum, I am happy to come out of the shadows and be able to interact with the exciting CrackBerry community.
On this occasion I would like to introduce an app that I have recently developed, called Aetheremin. For those who do not know what a theremin is, it is an electronic instrument which replicates sine waves.
I hope you have fun playing with it and you can grab it for free at https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...15452/?lang=en. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Just downloaded the app and tried it out on my 4 dogs. They don't like it much, but what's really funny is its really making the wife and kids mad. (There trying to watch the hatfields and Mc Coys) love it.

Very cool. Like an above post, it would be pretty cool to have an animation to go with it. Maybe like a light trail that changes color as you move from highs to lows? Very cool. Thank you for the app.BB then, now, forever...yeah, I said it.

Pretty cool but needs up/down volume by going up/down on the screen with second finger.
Maybe choice of wave form would be cool too..______________________________________

The one thing that I want to see is some soft of bg graph that shows pitch and volume axis. It's kind of tricky at first since it just seems to squelch and go crazy.
I was under the assumption that lowest pitch and volume would be in lower left corner (thinking cartesian coordintaes) and highest volume and pitch would be in top right.
But then I find I can get most of the sounds in the middle, suggesting that it's more of a bullseye pattern kind of pitch and volume kind of idea. Am I wrong? Again some sort of background graphic explaining usage or ranges would be awesome.Storm, playbook.
@ Elessar.cm: I don't really understand your problem, shoot me an email at help.pxlcoder at gmail.com and I'd be happy to help you resolve any problems
@mountainlab: It's not exactly a bulls-eye pattern, but I will provide an outline in the next version of the app.
It might take a while for me to release an update as exams are coming up, but I hope you continue to enjoy Aetheremin in it's current state. As of now, the update will feature a usage diagram, more volume control and some drag effects.

great app. I saw Claudio Sanchez from Coheed and Cambria play this at a concert and was amazed at it. went home and searched all over for it and found what it was called.
He actually used it while playing guitar and used the neck of his guitar and his huge puffy hair to control it rather then his hands
EDIT: Video link below
Theremin starts around 9 mins, but a GREAT overall video. this was epic when i saw it live

Glad to see this thread pop up.
Anytime GF's little grandson/granddaughter come to town, i MAKE SURE to have the PlayBook around just so they can annoy everyone with Aetheramin! and, of course, they have a lot of other fun too.It was recently pointed out to me that SugarSync was still in my signature, and no longer available for free. It was a nice (free) ride, SugarSync, but I'm seeing Box and Dropbox now, via BB10 integration.
