One thought on “SampleTron Virtual Mellotron Now Shipping

  1. Save your money. I have a hard time justifying any V.I. purchase from I.k. Multimedia. Their products always make me feel like I over spent for mashed potatoes (instant), that come with no butter, sour cream, salt or pepper. Sampletron is no exception to my previously formed opinion of I.K. – very underwhelming.
