Arturia Mellotron V - Electronic Delivery

Faithfully modeled reproduction of the Mellotron - infuse your sound with updated vintage goodness!
MFR# 1090-65

Product Description

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, the Arturia Mellotron V, their 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. Whether you’re conjuring the classics or creating new ones, adding this vintage sound to your music with Mellotron V is sure to make people sit up and listen.

What if you placed a tape playback mechanism under each key and fed each one a recording of a single orchestral instrument note? Crazy? Brilliant? Who cares! That ingenuity resulted in the Mellotron and empowered artists like The Beatles, The Moody Blues, Genesis and Yes to perform strings, brass, woodwinds and more without hiring a room full of session players. The imperfections of tape flutter and other 1960s electronics yielded a sort of alt-universe version of these traditional instruments. In today’s world of pristine sampling, that contrast has brought the “Tron” sound back into vogue at the hands of artists like Caro Emerald, Vampire Weekend and Kasabian.

Something old, a lot new

Here’s the thing. There are plenty of Mellotron samples out in the world—but why stop there when you can interact with a full-on model of the real thing? Thanks to the award-winning modeling tech found throughout V Collection 7, Arturia have 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.

There are many sounds that made the Mellotron famous. Now you have them all.

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 let’s 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 plug-in hosts.

Get ready. A lot of people are going to be asking you, "What is that sound?!”

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
