M-Tron Pro is a standard emulation of the classic Mellotron – a unique keyboard for playback on magnetic tape, which was first released in the UK in the early 1960s and glorified by such famous artists as The Beatles, Yes, Led Zeppelin and The Moody Blues.
The 3.5 GB audio file library includes about 200 banks of tapes (sets of samples), including from the world’s first Tron plugin, M-Tron. 19 tape banks were also remastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios, giving a warm tone that excels the originals.
M-Tron Pro also supplies 45 brand new cassette tapes and over 700 patches, many of which were created by world-class musicians and programmers. Just download these patches for instant nostalgia with a twist or open the lid to access elements for easy editing of layers, splits, reverse, half speed, envelopes and with version 3 (released in May 2019). M-Tron Pro can be used offline (Mac / PC) or as a plugin for most popular host applications.
