Description

The Electro Harmonix MEL9 Tape Replay Machine emulates vintage Mellotron® sounds and uses the same ground breaking technology that powers the award-winning B9 and C9 Organ Machines, plus the KEY9 Electric Piano Machine. Now any electric guitar player can have access to nine magically quirky, dark and unique Mellotron® sounds. No more extra devices such as special and cumbersome 13-pin MIDI pickups! In addition to electric guitar, you can trigger the MEL9 with any instrument that produces an electrical output, such as a keyboard or a bass, down to 55 Hz or A1. The polyphonic MEL9 has superior tracking; you can create single notes or chords with ease. The MEL9 will follow guitar bends, dive bombs, slurs, and any other guitar expression/performance techniques you can throw at it!

Preset Descriptions:

  • Orchestra – This sound represents a full orchestra—including an octave below the normal guitar—and produces a gigantic, full sound.
  • Cello – This sound of a solo cello includes the cello’s natural vibrato.
  • Strings – Presenting the sound of a small four-piece string section, including natural vibrato.
  • Flutes – This preset presents the classic solo flute sound heard on many recordings.
  • Clarinet – This sound of a solo clarinet sounds great both as a solo (played monophonically) instrument and when playing chords.
  • Saxophone – This funky vintage British solo saxophone sound is perfect for playing Beatles-like rock lines. It blends great with an overdriven guitar.
  • Brass – This preset is a trumpet-like sound, and when playing chords it produces a great brass section sound. As noted earlier, the ATTACK and SUSTAIN knobs work differently for this preset than for other presets. The ATTACK knob controls a filter sweep for brass synthesizer sounds and the SUSTAIN knob adds the “lip buzz” characteristic of trumpet/brass sounds.
  • Low Choir – This sound is a full low-voiced choir made up of many voices.
  • High Choir – This sound is a higher-voiced choir made up of many voices.
