Tech Talk: Therevox. June 26th

IMG_4121

If you’re in the Windsor/Detroit area, I will be speaking at HackForge on June 26th at 6PM about Therevox, showing some early prototype stuff and demonstrating the ET-4.3. The event is located at the Central Branch of the Windsor Public Library, and more details can be found here.

New Therevox Expression Pedal

This one has been on the back-burner for a while, and I’m happy to say that it is finally done! When we designed the ET-4, we always expected would be used with an expression pedal full control of the sound (pitch, amplitude and timbre). While most off-the-shelf expression pedals will work fine, we designed this pedal to be a perfect complement to the instrument. Included is a 5′ cable that we’ve made using high quality jacks and vintage reproduction cotton overbraid cord.

Therevox ET-4 on some new releases

Suuns - Images Du Futur

A few new records came out that include the Therevox ET-4. “Images Du Futur” by Suuns has been getting a lot of airplay on CJAM 99.1 here and I’ve really been enjoying it.

Besnard Lakes - Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO

There is also a Therevox ET-4 on the newest album by The Besnard Lakes called “Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO” that has also been on regular rotation in the Therevox workshop. Some very cool interviews with them can be found in the Montreal Gazette and La Presse (En Français).

Tweed Road Case

Happy new years to Everyone! We’ve been busy in the shop working on our new Tweed Road Case, designed to fit the ET-4. The sides are made of anodized aluminum and the wooden faces are wrapped in our tweed fabric. The divider on the inside is made of walnut finished with tung oil with a serial number hand-stamped into it. The section for accessories is designed to fit our upcoming expression pedal (more on that later). These cases are a limited production, please email us for availability.

ET-4 at Rocking Horse Studios

Rocking Horse Studio in Pittsfield New Hampshire has posted a video of their ET-4 (serial number 1-07) being used in a recording session. Very cool!
