There was. Moog used to make a Theremin called the Ethervox that had a
MIDI output. I got to see the prototype at the 1997 Portland Theremin
While it is a marvelous instrument, it is not a simple "plug and play"
device that will work with all MIDI receiving units. It does not send
discrete notes: everything is sent as pitch bend, so it depends on how
the receiving unit responds to pitch bend. And a Theremin is never
going to be the best trigger for percussive sounds. (-8
Alas, the Ethervox was very expensive, and a lot of the people who
purchased it never used the MIDI portion. As at the time it was the
best Theremin available. It's been discontinued in place of the
MIDI-less Etherwave Pro.
