The Motion Theremin allows you to create melodic lines of music using simple hand gestures while holding your phone, without touching the screen.
Use the bottom of your device as an axis, and tilt its top back and forth on the Y-axis (Pointing to the floor, straight ahead, and to the ceiling - alternatively, see illustration in the screenshots).
Tilting the device on the X-axis changes the volume, the more you tilt sideways the lower the volume will be.
♬ Sound kind-of like a Theremin sound. I'm still working on it but it's getting there.
♬ You can play exact frequencies of tones in six different scales - Chromatic, Major, Minor, Blues, Pentatonic, and Makam Hijaz.
♬ Choose one of four different wave forms - Sine, Triangle, Square, Saw.
♬ Adjust the tempo of the readings - 60, 120, 180, 240 bpm (e.g. 120bpm will send a reading every 500ms).
♬ Device won't go to sleep while the app is on, which is ideal for live performance.
♬ Mute and Reset buttons.
♬ This is a full-featured version with no in-app purchases, no freemium, and no intrusive ads (only a small banner ad at the bottom of the screen).
♬ Requires practice for good results!
