A Mellotron simulation based on original Mellotron strings and choir samples
Ever loved the sound of the emerging 70s? King Crimson, Rick Wakeman, Yes? Then this may be an instrument for you.
Based on original 1973 Mellotron M400S strings and choir samples, it is basically a two-channel crossfading sampler with LFO and an array of effects.
The two sample maps used for producing sound may also be replaced to fit other needs. (Will upload further Mellotron sample maps in the near future.)
Note: the original Mellotron had a key range of G2 through F5 - so playing keys above or below you are leaving the range of nice sound, as the tunes are now produced by simple transposition.
Note 2: in order to get around this ridiculously low upload size limit imposed by NI, I had to use 7zip compression - so don't be surprised that upon unzipping you'll get a mellotron.7z instead of an .ens. use the 7zip GPL program by www.7-zip.org to decompress your ensemble. the Mac guys may use something like http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/22774/the-unarchiver (sorry, 7zip is a Windows application. but I'm sure you'll fix it;-)
