Default Rp-1000

Hey guys I'm letting go my my moog etherwave theremin in exchange for a digitech rp1000 and wanted to get some info on how to record with the thing. Can the thing basically act like a usb audio interface? Does anyone who owns one gimme a sample of something they have personally used to record with it?

...that...doesn't strike me as a fantastic trade. The RP-1000, quite apart from not being all that great in the first place, retails for 100 *less* than the theremin does.

You'd be trading a high quality, albeit niche, piece of expensive kit from a respected high end manufaturer, for a mass produced, not-exactly-well-regarded piece of kit from a low tier manufacturer, and you'd be adding insult to injury by being basically 100 worse off in terms of monetary value.


I'd sell the theremin via another route and buy something more worthwhile like a BOSS GT-10 or POD500. They're more expensive than the theremin but they're both going to make the RP-1000 look very much like the terrible idea it is.

Here's a comparison on thomann

yeah thanks for this I actually ended up trading a 60s kay sg rip off for one a guy was selling for 200$ I am actually quite happy I still have my theremin. Also I didn't prefer the gt-10 to be honest.
