      Does anyone have a preset or advice on getting a spooky theremin tone? I am working on a Halloween-themed song and want to get my spook on. I used Pitchflex and Quadravox last night to get some organ-like tones, but I think the song still needs something else to push it over the edge…

      Synthonizer has some organ tones. H910 can make dramatic pitch swell. MangledVerb is good at spooky sound.

      For a theremin, you might consider a Whammy-like pitch preset through the Synthonizer.  Not sure how that would track … With access to an expression pedal, it might be good to run through all the pitch-based presets solo, and note how they track, crossfade, and/or glitch.

      The ‘pitch-shifting’ Delay algorithms (like Tape Echo) give unusual effects when adjusted, as do some of the Reverb algos with SIZE.  When I think ‘spooky’, it’s hard to avoid the BlackHole algorithm.  Plenty of multi-FX to fine-tune there.  Heavy modulation will bend the apparent pitch in freaky directions.

      Off the top of my head, here are a few preset links that may / may not help out here:

      Thanks Brock. I am still on the spooky sounds hunt and will check them out. Ever think of posting some of your masterful presets on the Preset Share page?
