I don't really see what your Theremin-style MIDI controller has to do with the  
synth.  It's a MIDI controller, it's seperate from all that stuff by design.

I'd just write a program to do it.   If you really think a nice little DSP box  
would be useful, do that later.  You've got enough problems on your hands  
building the controller.  One step at a time. ;)
