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

Truly an exceptional piece of musical gear.

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 I’d ever hoped to experience. Truly an exceptional piece of musical gear. Highly recommended.
