The Orca Synth - A photocell light controlled digital synthesizer, played like a Theremin


video upload by LunaKraft Instruments

LunaKraft also made The Guitron I. Unfortunately the video there is no longer available, but you will find some pics.

"Digital music synthesizer created in the 'circuit bent' style, uses two photocell light sensors to create synth notes in any selectable key.

Each photocell controls notes for one voice of the synthesizer, each voice can be modified separately.
1. Octave control: selects 1-4 octaves for each voice.
2. Modulation effect control.
3. Control note length of each voice.
4. Waveforms: Square, Sine, Triangle, Ramp, Noise.
5. *Select 12 different keys.
6. A chorus effect.
7. Note pulse effect.

Some of the sounds remind me of the sonar sounds made by whales, hence the name Orca Synth."
