The GForce M-Tron VST 2.0 Software Instrument is an expert model of the legendary British Mellotron. The Mellotron was an organ-like instrument manufactured between 1963 and 1986 that utilized a 35-note keyboard with each key controlling its own piece of tape. The tapes featured recordings of real players and instruments, arguably making the Mellotron the world's first sampler.
The M-Tron VST 2.0 captures all of the character of the original instrument by sampling every note of every key and adhering to the original 8-second limit of each note. This way, not only do the resultant sounds ebb and flow, all the inherent and nostalgic magic of each sound is closely observed - minor imperfections and all. This authentic VSTi has just undergone a complete rewrite and is now available for all current Windows and Mac platforms, including Windows XP and Mac OSX. Packaged in its own flight case box, GForce M-Tron includes 2.5GB of authentic Mellotron sounds, which adds up to 100 tape banks ranging from classic flute and strings to some wonderfully quirky rhythms. The M-Tron allows on-screen and MIDI control over volume, tone, pitch, amplitude, and envelope attack and release so you can shape those classic sounds to your heart's content.
The sounds of the original Mellotron can be heard on songs from The Beatles, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Genesis, Yes, Oasis, Radiohead, and countless others.
