Psychedelic analog sampler.
Long before synths, the Mellotron put an orchestra at the keyboardist’s command using tape recordings of real instruments. Mellotron V harnesses all of its lo-fi goodness in an authentic virtual instrument, respectfully enhanced for modern music-making.
Tape-Based Orchestra Keyboard
Flutes, strings, brass, organs, choirs — if you wanted these sounds in the 1960s, the Mellotron was the only solution short of hiring section players.
Its unheard-of realism was infused with the quirks of each key playing a moving analog tape, creating a sound that went down in history with The Beatles, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and countless others. Mellotron V brings that history, with every beautiful sonic imperfection, to your musical future.
More Than Sound
Mellotron samples have been readily available for decades, but Mellotron V provides the full, immersive experience of playing the genuine article.
Mellotron V’s collection of 65 original tape banks is utterly authentic, recorded directly from the actual tapes.
Realistic and otherworldly at the same time, Mellotron V’s tones will lead to riffs and musical ideas that the best hi-fi orchestral samples won’t.
