Arturia

Description

Legendary tape keyboard. The Mellotron put an orchestra at the fingertips and redefined what it was to be a keyboard player. Now with modifications never dreamed of in the 1960s, Arturia's faithfully modeled reproduction will infuse your sound with updated vintage goodness.

From psychedelic rock to rocking your world
In the mid ‘60s, the Mellotron thrilled keyboardists with the ability to play tape-based recordings of actual orchestral instruments—adding its own quirky sonic character. 

Something old, a lot new
Thanks to Arturia's award-winning modeling tech found throughout V Collection 7, they’ve given you full control to tweak every aspect of your sound, including variable instrument mix combos, tape flutter, saturation and inherent noise. In addition to bringing vintage essence, Mellotron V allows you to play your own samples through this iconic tape-replay engine.

The famous Mellotron sounds, now all yours
Back in the day, a Mellotron could only play whatever three instruments were burnt into its installed tape bank. Today’s Mellotron V comes complete with samples of all the best tape banks from the original instruments and lets you mix-and-match them at the click of a mouse. You get a full library of presets with designer combos of instruments and onboard effects processing, all categorized and tagged for easy searching in the Mellotron V, Analog Lab and plugin hosts.
