  1. it would be cool if it was possible to stream samples from the cloud, or at least from a wlan server. kinda like vsti samples started streaming directly from disk years ago, to overcome memory limitations.

    1. Why would anybody give a down vote to above’s comment?!

      (Sorry, I made the same comment in response to Marc by mistake; I meant to reply to beat and I couldn’t edit/delete my mistake.)

  2. but still, the capacity is too low for sample based apps. 16-64gb is nothing in regards of samples.
    there wont be omnisphere for ipad, or similar stuff, as long as there is no way to stream samples from somewhere else.

  3. So why does it being on iOS make it special? If you really have a creative yen for the Mellotron, G-Media’s M-Tron Pro or IK Multimedia’s Sampletron are the no-brainer ways to go. Both offer substantial subtractive-synth-type parameters and numerous sounds beyond the Big Three of choir, strings and flute. M-Tron has several HUNDRED variants to offer, many from devoted ‘tron users in the field. As a musician/synthesist, don’t you want the greatest flexibility possible? I’m not seeking to disrespect the app; it sounds good and is surely a prize find for those who only seek the choir and strings. I simply challenge people to step up a bit and consider the 2 soft-Mellotrons as a major increase in creative power and fun.

    BTW, for those who have never played a real ‘tron…. its a wheezing, gluey, Rube-Goldberg mess of a thing, heh heh. I got to play one with the 3-sound rack in it. While reveling in the complete connection that arises from having to put some real muscle into playing it (not unlike a real Hammond organ, actually), I felt as if the damned thing could explode at any moment and this was one under good maintenance. I can’t imagine anyone trying to take the beast out on the road. No wonder Wakeman is alleged to have set fire to one. 😀 Its a beautiful instrument and I’m happy to have it as a plug. That far outweighs any of the computer-y drawbacks. Sure beats not having one.

  4. Useful information. Fortunate me I discovered your website unintentionally, and I am surprised why this accident did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  5. I loved as much as you’ll obtain performed proper here. The caricature is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an edginess over that you want be turning in the following. in poor health no doubt come further formerly once more since exactly the similar just about very incessantly inside of case you shield this hike.
