The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical, polyphonic tape replay keyboard developed in 1963. It works by pulling a section of magnetic tape across a head and it's considered the first sampler. Used by The Beatles, King Crimson, Rolling Stones and many more.

The original Mellotron M400 had no round robin and just 1 velocity layer, and the samples only played for about 8 seconds. We have recreated this behaviour but with optional 3x random round robin, dynamic range control and looping. 

In extension to the M400 we also added a +/- octaver, noise control with two modes, mixable tapes, tone control (tilt EQ), 25 instrument samples and a brand new script called "Rack Effects" to add up to 12 audio effects which expands exponentially the sound design capabilities of the library. 

In order to read detailed information about the library, sounds and script, please read this user manual here. Find the Rack Effects manual here.

Wavesfactory The Tack KONTAKT Wavesfactory The Tack KONTAKT
The Tack is a recreation of "Mrs Mills”, a tack piano from Abbey Road Studios with which The Beatles, Elliot Smith and many others recorded some of their tracks.

The tack piano (sometimes referred to as jangle piano, junk piano, honky-tonk piano or harpsipiano) is a permanently altered version of an ordinary piano, in which tacks or nails are placed on the felt-padded hammers of the instrument at the point where the hammers hit the strings, giving the instrument a tinny, more percussive sound.

What's nice about the library is that it relies on an ordinary upright piano and you can add the amount of "tack" sound you want.
This is an "W-Honky" update for what we re-recorded the same upright piano with 3 velocity layers, 3 round robin, time-based multi-release samples, pedal noise, sustain resonance, velocity remapping, EQ, reverb, chorus and compressor effects, all controllable from the brand new interface. State of the art scripting for perfect response of the instrument. 

I feel very proud of this instrument. It's my go-to upright piano library. 
You can have it now for only €19.95!

PureMagnetik MicroTron Tape 2 For Live, Logic, Kontakt-AudioP2P PureMagnetik MicroTron Tape 2 For Live, Logic, Kontakt-AudioP2P
This second edition to the Microtron series includes even more classic sounds! Microtron Tape 2 comes with the legendary Mark II Flute, Cello and Octave Recorders.

MK II Flute
Undoubtedly the sound that defines Mellotron, the MKII flute instantly conjures images of 1967 Abbey Road. Not only the most famous Mellotron sound, but perhaps the eeriest, the MKII flute's dubious pitching has been in question throughout the decades. The change in timbre (they say two flutes were used) and odd intonation only adds to the haunting and mesmerizing character of this timeless sound.

Octave Recorders
The Octave Recorder is a newer sound composed of soprano, alto and tenor recorders. Playing fast staccato chords on this one can make it sound a bit like a harmonium. It has a solid woody tone with breathy articulations and is definitely a contender to fill up the mix with some organic elements.

Renown for its melancholy timbre and described by some as "wheezing and groaning" the Cello sound was originally recorded in the 1960s. A double bassist was used for the lower registers. Apparently the original session cellist did not wish to detune his cello for fear of damaging the instrument. Nonetheless, the Mellotron Cello recording is undoubtedly a unique character in the tape library.

Microtron Tape 2 for Ableton Live Kontakt and Logic

This second installment of Puremagnetik's Microtron series brings three classic sounds from original Mellotron tapes direct to your DAW.

Microtron is undoubtedly the most comprehensive, natively programmed Mellotron sound set for Ableton Live. Microtron Tape 2 builds upon Live's rack features to create the blending effects between tape sounds as can be achieved with a physical Mellotron. Native live effects are completely integrated with multisample mode racks so that any Live 7 or 8 user can instantly load these sounds.

In addition, Microtron Tape 2 includes 50 Live Clips performed by professional studio keyboardists. Each clip comes preprogrammed with the multi sound Microtron rack for the most flexibility and editing possibilities.

Microtron Tape 2 for Kontakt comes with a selectable multi sound instrument with custom KSP editing features and Kontakt native effects. The Kontakt download also includes over 40 tempo-synced Apple Loops that can be dropped directly into Kontakt or played in the environment of your choice. (For native Apple SIAL loops be sure to download the Logic version)

Microtron Tape 2 for Logic includes three EXS instruments as channel strips that instantly install into the Logic library and a collection of over 40 SIAL Apple Loops.

The best feature on the library is being able to control the roll intensity with the modwheel. No more time-fixed samples which are very hard to sync with your track. With Suspended Cymbals you can control or play the rolls yourself.

On the mixer section you can mix each microphone position and apply convolution reverb with any of the 30 provided impulses, highpass and lowpass filters and envelope with attack, hold and decay.
On the settings section you can control the volume of each articuation separately, round robin repetitions, dynamic range, muffling time, velocity curve and voicing.

The cymbals: Zildjian Custom Session Crash 16", Zildjian Avedis Custom 18", Zildjian Dark Medium Thin 18", Paiste Masters Dark Crash 18" and Istanbul Mehmet Traditional 18".
We want this library to become the go-to for suspended cymbals, you'll find everything you need. It won't go any better than this!
