8 thoughts on “New Mellotron Rack Extension for Reason, ChamberTron RE”
Great demo, with a colorful bit of history included. Reason users are getting a solid deal IMO, because I’ve used G-Force’s M-Tron Pro in my DAW for 2 years. Its totally stable, while retaining all of the classic ‘tronny graininess we love, including numerous surprisingly clean sounds. The synth controls let you take it into weird areas no real Mellotron could reach. Its good to see that aspect present here. You’ll enjoy warping it into odd, personalized shapes. Chambertron is probably going to tickle the fancies of a lot of players.
Dave Spiers Is that you?
No, S-Trigger Dave is my given Australian Christian name. Its on my birth certificate. My parents have Moog logos tattooed on opposing butt cheeks. They think its cute to mash them together at the beach, but its horrifying. They had them done 30+ years ago. Now the tats say “Myoogr.” At least they’re not Korn logos.
I have M-tron Pro as well for years now, and I’m wondering after all of this time is there anything else out there that is better or as good?
M-torn pro is nice, the strings and voice sounds are nice and characterful to twist up.
I have no use for the other sounds.
I’ve used M-Tron Pro for years… good solid stuff, about as good as it gets short of a real Mellotron.
I would buy it as vst plugin for this price
BTW, with version 9.5, Reason will accept VSTs, just not in ReWire mode. That’s been a big user request for years, so if you’re using it, its a point to consider when eyeballing a new instrument.
