Superbooth 2023: Theresyn - Theresyn - Les DiffYUseurs

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Nori Ubukata from Theresyn at Superbooth 2023 where he showcased his updated Therasyn instrument. The latest version has a more refined look than its predecessor with a different wood finish and is more aesthetically pleasing. The basic functionality of the Theresyn remains the same, however, some improvements have been made, such as the addition of pulse waves and the ability to choose the percentage of the pulse.

Theresyn's second model is Les DiffYUseurs, designed to simulate the sound system of an Ondes Martenot, it is a handcrafted instrument with a metal diffuser with two gong modes; one small and one larger gong, which have a different frequency response. The Diffuser also includes a reverb with tremolo effect that work together.

Les DiffYUseurs Price: €399,

Theresyn Price: €2,800."

Soundmit 2019: Theresyn - an electro-acoustic theremin crossed with a synthesiser!

Published on Nov 3, 2019 Ask.Audio

"It's a theremin in a way, but not as you know it! At Soundmit 2019 we stumbled across a theremin and a synthesizer in one machine... the theresyn. Here's what it can do and what it sounds like."

Check out Theresyn in previous posts here.

MESSE 2016: Theresyn - One Unique Theremin Inspired Instrument!

Published on Apr 7, 2016

"MESSE 2016: Theresyn - One Unique Theremin Inspired Instrument! Nori Ubukota takes us through his instrument"

Update: I did a little digging and it turns out the circuit design of the Theresyn is from none other than Yves Usson, of YuSynth and of course the Arturia MiniBrute, MicroBrute and MaxiBrute.

"You love theremins and synthesizers? Then, you’re bound to love the Thérésyn, a new hybrid instrument !

As stated in the name, the Thérésyn is a mixture of a theremin and a synthesizer. To be more specific, it is an analog theremin, with various synthesizers adds on, as well as other interesting functionalites.

The Thérésyn has been imagined by Nori Ubukata (Japanese sound designer, composer and thereminist, ex. ARTURIA sound and specification designer) and all the circuits has been designed and developped by Yves Usson (French scientist in cellular and molecular biology, well-known creator of the ARTURIA Minibrute synthesizer).

Originally, the theremin part of the Thérésyn was to be made with Theremin.Uno, but for technical reason, Yves Usson finally designed his own circuit, using the heterodyne principle.

Here is a small technical overview :
- 7 octaves range
- Foldable antennas
- Touch trigger pad with pressure sensor (inspired from Konstantin Kovalsky’s theremin)
- Resonator with Jawari (inspired from the Palm du diffuser of the Ondes Martenot)
- Built in speaker
- Power supply by AC outlet or battery
- Headphone output
- Tuner output
- Two audio outputs (one for the instrument and another one for the resonator)
- Mute switch
- Pitch tracking Multimode Filter
- Envelop generator (available in pad trigger mode)
- Possibility of mixing the Thérésyn OSC with VCO waves
- VCO with several waveforms (saw, square, pulse, white noise and tri-saw with metalizer)
- Volume antenna mode, pad trigger pressure mode and pad trigger EG mode are switchable"
