If you (like me) think you’ve seen all the Theremins you can, think again …


I’ve seen a lot of ‘theremin’ apps in the past, lots and lots. So I’m skeptical about a new one. However, this look quite interesting, especially the layering feature. So I’m keen to try this one out. Until then, here’s the app’s description …

This is a multitouch synth instrument. Press the screen and play with the options to create a plethora of scuzzy yet melodic soundscapes. Record, loop and add layers to your composition, then share or download your loop to continue its journey.

The original Theremin went live in 2014 and was one of Femur’s first projects. Over a million hits later and hundreds of requests for a record button, Luke the creator has redesigned it. Now the Theremin is ready for you to experiment with.

Happy playing!

  • Records, loops, overdubs and plays back
  • Multitouch allows up to 8 tones to be played simultaneously with your fingers
  • 3 sliders: delay, feedback and scuzz
  • 4 waveforms: sine, square, triangle and saw
  • No internet needed, works both online and offline
  • Download the loop as a .wav file
  • Can be shared with other apps e.g Facebook messenger, Mail, Message and more
