Recollections of PalmSounds: Trent Thompson, Moog Music Inc

Since Moog entered the iOS market they’ve continued to innovate and excite users from the first version of Filtatron which I got to test briefly before it went live to their latest and most amazing app the Model 15.

Moog have supported us consistently and on a personal note they were very kind in supporting my SoundLab project with their amazing Thereminis. So it was great to get this from Trent:

‚ÄúCongratulations PalmSounds on your decade of success! This is truly an incredible milestone and we are so glad to be a part of it.”

Mobile Studio: Palm OS4: Theremini

Theremini emulates a Theremin using the speaker in Palm devices and the pen to control amplitude and frequency. It is also able to control MIDI sound modules in real time.

Theremini is of course the predecessor to AxisPad from miniMusic. It is a fantastic little application and one of the first I ever used on my palm. As it worked with external MIDI devices I used to use it with my old Swivel Systems SG20 module. I do miss that old MIDI module, I wish I’d kept it now, they’re pretty much impossible to get hold of these days, I don’t think I’ve seen one on eBay for years.

Theremini is one of those applications that you just have to play with once in a while. For the same reason I love AxisPad, and I’m really looking forward to when it can record and export as well.

Theremini is really worth a try if you’ve never played with an app like it, and you should check out Pete Moss’ web site too, as it is quite an interesting place!
