Realistic Mellotron Emulation. Cross-platform, both Mac and PC.

GForce M-Tron VST Mellotron Plugin (Macintosh and Windows)
The M-Tron (tm) is a software simulation of the classic tape playing instrument the Mellotron (tm). The M-Tron is available for both Mac and PC platforms and contains over 100 classic Tape Banks including Strings, Choirs, Flutes and Brass along with some of the most amazing rhythms you'll ever hear.

When pressed, each key on the original instrument moved a tape head onto a piece of tape to play the note or sound. In order that we replicate the original instrument's tone as closely as possible each individual tape has been sampled and coded into the M-Tron. Each key on the M-Tron plays an individual recording of these tapes. Once the eight seconds of tape has been played it is simply re-wound. As with the original there are no loop points giving the instrument a unique playing characteristic.

"A must have"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
A must for anyone.....It has totally expanded my creative ideas..
Sound
This sounds fantastic....you really listen to the Beatles in a differnt light figuring out that alot of the random things going on during : "I am the Walrus" and "Strawberry fields" comes from these bank sounds. The Bassoon+flute patch is worth the price alone....and of course the "Strawberry fields" flute that Fiona Apple seems to love also.
Features
The addition of Attack and Release add a lot to the realism..or unrealism.....I would have liked to have some type of combine function..
Quality
Amazing....Dont know how i survived without this software
Value
Well worth the general price of $100
Manufacturer Support
