A theremin-like device to control the pitch and volume of a musical note. It utilizes a photo-resistor to control the pitch, and an ultrasonic sensor to control a servo controlling a potentiometer controlling the volume.
This looks like a real easy way to experience a thermin.
Alan where do I find the attached file: theremin.pdf ? Could you please provide the schematic in a pdf or jpg too ?
How i can download the project guide? thanks!
I am very interested in this project. Cant seem to find the arduino code you attached.
I too am looking for the pdf file that is supposed to have the code in it. I’ll never understand why it is that authors forget things and then don’t respond to there readers. It also doesn’t make sense that “Make” allows this to go on so often.
I made some code to go along with this project and it seems to work well
have completed this project and found that it was for the most part
successful. Theremin made noise but the frequency range was very small.
The servo and potentiometer didn’t move and didn’t change anything. I’m
wondering what those are supposed to do in this system.

Why can’t I see the code or use the buttons on this page?

What’s the point of using a servo to control a rotary switch? That looks silly and you can simply map your ultrasonic sensor data to control the volume without it.
