Frostwave | SpaceBEAM
|The Frostwave spaceBEAM is a theremin type instrument, using the reflection of an infra-red beam from the operator's hand. This results in a much more stable and reliable behaviour.
When you place your hand above the Spacebeam it's infra red light is reflected back, generating an audio tone that changes pitch as you move your hand up and down.
Volume - sets the audio output level.
Wave - adjusts the tone of the note.
Glide - adds a smoothing to the control, so that changes in pitch are not so rapid. changes the sensitivity of the unit.
CV and Gate
The spaceBEAM can be used to control a monosynth with a CV and gate input, such as a Roland SH-101.
The CV output can also be used to control effect units having a CV input, such as the Frostwave Blue Ringer ring modulator, or the Frostwave Resonator filter unit
Using as a Theremin
In a traditional theremin, the volume is controlled by the left hand. In the case of the spaceBEAM, you can control the volume by running the audio into a potentiometer type volume control footpedal.
Use with other effects
The output from the spaceBEAM can be run into any analog or digital effect unit. Fuzz and wah will modify the tone, while delay can produce some remarkable ambient effects, especially with reverb added. Experiment!

|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
