All the sounds of the Mellotron in a compact format!
MFR# Micro

Product Description

The Mellotron M4000D Micro is the smallest version available of the M4000D Digital Mellotron, and includes many of the features of the full-size version. One hundred 24-bit uncompressed sounds are immediately accessible, sourced from original first-generation Mellotron and Chamberlain tape libraries. An octave selector switch provides access across the same range as the larger M4000Ds from Micro’s two-octave keyboard. The semi-weighted keys and MIDI connections also allow the Mellotron Micro to be used as a high-quality controller in your studio or on the road. Additional controls include octave selector, volume, tone, normal/half-speed play and pitch adjustment.

Features:

  • 100 instantly accessible Mellotron and Chamberlin sounds, captured from original tape sources at 24-bits, uncompressed
  • A and B sound banks simultaneously accessible, with mix control
  • Controls for octave, volume, tone, normal/half-speed play and pitch adjustment
  • Outputs on unbalanced 1/4-in line connectors
  • Additional 1/4-in connectors for sustain and headphones
  • MIDI in, out, and thru

This thing is a keeper from day one. It’s a TON of fun in a small package, and sounds absolutely authentic. So easy to use too! No regrets paying the cost of this little baby, it's the real deal. I can't believe I have a Mellotron. :)

This is the difference between a keyboard and an instrument. Everything about it is incredible.

By Andrew Y on January 7, 2022

This thing sits in the mix way better than the plugs, plus is great live.

By william w on January 3, 2022

Really high Quality Audio equipment . I a Korg Micro XL and Roland JDXI each with features that are unique to themselves an utilized the Mellotron out of three is the most well built .

Great service!

By John P on June 20, 2021

I love it!

By John M on June 19, 2021

Great unit. Solid construction. Sounds great. Love the mix function. Spendy but I get it. Sounds way better than Nord mellotron sounds.

By Emile on May 4, 2021

Extremely cool box- way more versatile than I had expected and great build quality

By Gravity S on May 3, 2021

GREAT INSTRUMENT AND SELLER +++ Solid build quality and works like a charm...I love the sound of this keyboard!!

By jonathan n on February 15, 2021

Terrific product and great addition to any project studio or home recording capability.

By Ken K on January 28, 2021

Having owned both a Mellotron MkII and a M400 model, as well as having played various Chamberlin instruments, I can say with assurance that the Micro delivers on sonic goodness. Fantastic sounds library and a very small footprint to boot. I love it and it is features on my 2021 recordings. Recommended highly. And kudos to Vintage King for quick and efficient delivery.

By Les F on January 5, 2021

It sounds great. t has the sounds I've always wanted in a keyboard.

By Douglas N on December 29, 2020

Sam helped me find the right time and place to purchase this beautiful piece of machinery. I use it in every song that I make :) you guys rock!

By Zac W on December 3, 2020

So cool

By James A on November 29, 2020

Love it!! The sounds on here are killer!!
Everything feels really quality and nice..

By John K on November 24, 2020

No regrets about this piece of kit! Simply brilliant, and good craftsmanship too.

By Lincoln B on November 19, 2020

Just sounds fantastic! Built like a tank and nice and small so it's easy to bring to gigs. 2 octaves is surprisingly usable, especially if you mostly play one-handed parts.

By Ryan E on November 18, 2020

Useful and fun to play

By Daniel H on November 17, 2020

Plug-ins are for losers! Give yourself some respect and buy this Mellotron. The key bed is sturdy, and the sound quality of this machine is unmatched. The fact that this is portable puts the icing on the cake. Straight out of the box I was inspired to write. The Mellotron Micro is the way to go!

By Ramon V on October 31, 2020

Authentic sounds. Even the alto sax is legit.

By Jeff S on February 9, 2020

Excellent product at an affordable price. This unit handily blows away the vintage M-400 and the two improv Akai sampler-based digital 'trons that I've been using.. really impressive sonics for a digital Mellotron. An added bonus is the collection of Chamberlin sounds that is also included. Highly recommended!

By William B on February 8, 2020

The perfect solution for that “I dunno, it needs something!” Moment.

By Mike M on December 22, 2019

The keyboard is great and the service from Vintage King all but guarantees that I’ll purchase from them again!

By Andre P on November 28, 2019

Easily the best sounding Digital Mellotron out there, the sounds are stunning, very dimensional, accurate, and work great in any production. I’ve used in several productions so far and all my clients are thrilled. And the “M” light! Touch it and it changes color! So vibey. Lightweight, amazing build quality, and really a delight to play.
I do wish half-speed was easier to get to than having to go into a menu, maybe long-hold on the Octave switch?
Absolutely love this instrument!

By Raymond R on November 5, 2019

I just received my Mellotron Micro today, and am overjoyed. I am impressed with the helpful and prompt service of Vintage King. Hats off to the folks at Mellotron for updating their iconic instrument. It’s a dream come true to own and use one in the modern age. The sounds are incredible, and I like the fact you can blend sound-banks A & B to create more sound textures. The Micro is well made and compact, making it ideal for live gigs, something that original tape-rack Mellotrons were never really suited for. It may be a no-frills basic version of the original, but still a work of art.

By Cary H on October 15, 2019

Can't live without it. While you can't use the expansion card ($500 a pop anyways) with this Micro version, I really love the portability of it. Keys feels great, love the blend knob of two sounds. An incredible for producers of any genre.

By Andy C on September 5, 2019

Love the Mellotron Micro. Couldn’t be happier with it. Simple but great sounding and unique. Vintage King was helpful and easy to work with on my pre-order!

By Timothy R on July 9, 2019

So much . Better than the guitar I sold to get this micro. Mellotron!!! I love it!!!...

By Michael O on June 4, 2019

There really is nothing quite like a Mellotron. I think of it as the fairy dust of musical instruments: anything you sprinkle with it will magically become better.
The build quality of the Micro is extremely sturdy and the keys have a beautiful feel to them.
I was originally concerned that it didn't have a stereo out, but I quickly realized that it simply doesn't need one and adds to the overall "Mellotronness" of the sound. It's also a dream to mix. I can't recommend it highly enough.

By Rob M on January 28, 2019

Well designed instrument that is a complete joy to play.

By John L on January 28, 2019

For years I've eyed the newer iterations of the Mellotron. Having shed the tape racks of decades past, the updated synth/keyboard-style form factor alleviates the bulk and weight of its namesake ancestors. No longer physically imposing; the Mellotron re-imagined as portable and so seemingly intuitive to use. Then, there are those sounds... so powerful, so melancholy, so wistful. However, for one reason or another, the Mellotron remained beyond my reach. I tried recreating some of the sounds on a pedalboard (Superego>Organizer>Phaser>Chorus), with varying levels of success... not Mellotron per se, but more like a friend-of-a-friend of Mellotron. Anyway, earlier this year I stumbled upon a video from an industry trade show, premiering the Micro. Simpler, smaller, and just a gear swap away from being within my financial reach. It was time. Fast-forward two months, and the newly acquired Micro has integrated seamlessly into practices. The feel, the playability, the breadth of sounds and their quality, are well beyond what Id ever hoped to experience. Truly an exceptional piece of musical gear. Highly recommended.
