Arturia has introduced a free audio effect for Mac & Windows, Tape MELLO-FI, that makes anything sound like it was played on a Mellotron.
Tape MELLO-FI is inspired by the sound of the classic Mellotron tape sample playback keyboard, and they say it ‘captures the uniquely imperfect behavior of tape in perfect detail’.
- Tape emulator & lo-fi effect based on Mellotron V’s vintage sound & behavior
- Includes classic tape controls like Noise, Flutter, Wow, Wear, and Mechanics
- Introduces useful features like Distortion and Boost
- Interactive tape wheel with tempo-synchronized Tape Stop feature and optional Instant Tape Catch-up
- 12dB low-pass and high-pass filter section
- Enhanced Stereo Width feature introduces offsets to Wow & Flutter from left to right for an extra-wide sound
- Curated 25-preset library for instant-access to retro & lo-fi effects
- Apple M1 compatible

Tape MELLO-FI is available through Dec 31st, 2021 as a free download.
