Ever since I got my first Raspberry Pi however many years ago, I have periodically gone looking to see if anyone had used one to build a true heterodyne theremin, and until last night all that ever came up were the various optical/ultrasonic "theremins" people have built. I put together an ultrasonic circuit with a breadboard a couple of years ago and it was really cool, but not really usable as an actual instrument.
Jasper Taylor came up with a theremin circuit that's so simple even *I* can almost read it; it uses software to mix the oscillator signals and synthesize an audio signal, which means the DSP possibilities are basically endless once the circuit is in place. He came up a clever optional hack that enables the use of a couple of onboard clocks instead of external components for the oscillators, and also a clever way to use the antennae to toggle settings (as implemented there are no external controls.)
Really clever and (to my layman's eyes) elegant. And works on a Pi Zero. I do not *need* to build one of these (I have a very nice theremin already) but I'm probably going to attempt it. #theremin #raspberrypi
