Developer Omenie has released M3000 Free Edition – a ‘freemium’ virtual Mellotron for the iPad.
M3000 Free Edition is a fully-functional recreation of Streetly Electronics’ M4000 tape-replay instrument. Compared to the full version, the app offers just 5 tapes from Streetly Electronics’ production library, all authentic mellotron voices. In-App Purchases allow the full voice set of the 50th Anniversary Edition to be downloaded, and many other voices as well.
Apart from the limited voice set included with the app, no functionality is removed in this free edition. MIDI and AudioBus is fully functional, including ‘Two Trons’ mode where 2 different MIDI channels can control the A/B/C and D voices.
M3000 Free Edition is a free download from the App Store.

I’ve been watching the blog to see progress on Piana (for Raspberry Pi); and seeing frequent posts about the M3000. Sounds like a very well-thought-out lil beast of a tron sim.
This free release is probably going to widen the audience/user-base considerably.
I’m running low on room on my iPad. So being able to pick & choose voice sets is nice.
For me, It’s one of the best mellotron software out there, very expressive, great sound, I really recomend to download this free version as a good preview of the full version, you have 2 variations of the brass/string section, a choir, a moogish pad, and a rhodes keyboard. Is worth the download just for the string section wich is awesome. Maybe I could wish an ads envelope for the voices, but for what it is, is already a winner for me. Can’t wait to use it live!
wish there was an iphone version….
