Reading an article about the death of the last surviving member of the Glenn Miller band on CNN.com I found, in reference to the Electro-Theremin:

Though Tanner did not invent the device, "He enhanced on it and made it easier to play," his widow, Jeanette, said in a telephone interview. "He made it more like piano keys."

FWIW there are no hits in COCA that aren't 'enhanced [PP on ...]' Didn't want to try pure Google.
