Theremax™ is a simple synthesizer for the iPad, inspired by the Theremin and a number of other electronic and non-electronic instruments.
This project started with on a number of ideas: first of all, what if you could see the sounds around you, and play along. Theremax™ has a frequency graph in the background; you can whistle a tune, and by touching the peaks on the screen, play the same tune. The second founding idea was using the touch surface on the iPad as a musical instrument; hardly an original idea, but we’ve worked to use the iPad in the ways it works best, rather than trying to emulate existing instruments. Finally, we wanted to create a variable precision musical instrument; if you want to see the whole range of the instrument, you can zoom all the way out. If you want to play a melody precisely, you can zoom way in.
