If you just need a small dab of Mellotron, this could be plenty, but consider the Mellotron that comes with Logic now and much moreso, G-Media M-Tron Pro. Even the base set is hefty and very ear-opening beyond what most people think of as the usual territory. If you really need a ‘tron, go for the biggie. I’m three years in and still finding fun uses for it.
The biggie? Isn’t it impossibly big, heavy and delicate?
Hah! So’s the president. Its a Big Mac world. No, I meant M-Tron Pro. I’ve played a real Mellotron and its a bit mystical for sure, but one snarled tape in the rack and POOF! This is a case where the plug-ins outweigh the real deal for anything but a purist studio situation. A real Markus Resch Mellotron runs $6800 dollars & up and plays a max of three sounds. An M4000D mini is about $2000. M-Tron Pro is $149, plus host computer. If your wife comes home and learns that you dropped $6800 on a ‘tron, judges dismiss the case if she harpoons you for it.
