hello again all

well thanks for the vote of no confidence, it looked like it would be real
fun as a controller, but i don't have the skill yet to mess around too much
with something that won't work (ie four component portamento circuit that
didn't work for over a month cos i didn't notice that the op amp output
wasn't connected to anything...)
i could be tempted with an etherwave, but $199 is too rich for my pocket at
the moment, the $88ness of the paia is what tempted me - i have enough
trouble stringing together more than three notes an a well lit keyboard
with, never mind getting to grips with a theremin. as for my friend, he
wants one for a friend to put in her kitchen (who knows why...) we kind of
came to the conclusion that a simple £30 longwave / rosedyne 'pocket
theremin' (pitch contol only) would be sufficient
on a different tack - i put my name down for the moogerfooger delay over a
month ago, i don't think news of it has hit UK shores in any major sense -
i'm looking forward to it anyway...
