The Ondestrak

If you like the sound of the theramin, you may enjoy the Ondestrak.  Based loosely off of the Ondes Martnot, the Ondestrak works by changing the pitch of a continuous note. [Devin_mccutchen] built his using an old gametrak controller. The controller looks pretty cool. We hadn’t seen that one before. Check out a more musical performance after the break.

    Very Cool… I would make amplitude / volume more sensitive with the closing and opening of the board, and make the total distance the board has to close much smaller.

    i like how the writers write as if they were in 5th grade.

    “I hadnt seen that before. It was cool.”

    holy crap… please make it stop.

    By the way, if anyone is interested in the Ondes Martnot, check out a few albums by Radiohead: Amnesiac and pretty much everything after that. You can see Johnny Greenwood playing one of these in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OJ7qqlxQU0 at around 34 seconds in.
