Electro-musical instrument Theremin, developed by the Russian physicist L. Theremin, has passed a long way in its evolution. It evokes constantly growing interest of audio-engineers and performers. Theremin is used both for performing musical compositions of different genres and for making special effects in theatrical performances, multimedia, film industry. In the presented work the analysis of circuit technique solutions has been done created during more than 80 years period both on the basis of analogous circuit technique and digital microprocessor technique, and realizations of Theremin as real and virtual musical instruments. Also advantages and disadvantages of different circuit technique solutions have been analyzed and most interesting realizations of virtual Theremin are presented.
