The Mellotron plugin instrument is a recreation of the legendary tape sample keyboard machine featured on countless classic Rock albums. It’s so Iconic many consider it to be the first sampler. With AIR’s over 20 years of experience in developing high-quality emulations, you can be assured this instrument won’t disappoint.
It is designed for creative music production with a wide array of parameters, settings, and controls to craft an expansive range of keyboard instrument sounds. Start with the built-in sound categories and venture into a wide variety of sound shaping sections, notably, the new Flavor section.
AIR Mellotron includes 6 Tape Sets featuring the OG’s Flute, Choir and Strings tape samples, giving it a truly authentic sound. You can also select “Dirty” and “Cleaned” versions of the original tapes. Other sound-shaping parameters include Formant, Age and Sample Start. There are 30 factory presets to get you going and a selection of built-in effects, including the new AIR Flavour (instant lo-fi goodness).
