SONIC WONDER PRESENTS THE MELLOTRON SAMPLE PACK.
OVER 1000 WAVE MULTI SAMPLES WITH KONTAKT FILES: ORGANS,STRINGS,FLUTES,CHOIRS,TRUMPET,HARPSI,GUITARS AND MORE.
Originally designed as a ''home entertainment'' keyboard
by the mid sixties the Mellotron was starting to appear on
contemporary rock / pop records. A few of the many users of note
have included The Beatles, Yes (Rick Wakeman burnt his!),
Genesis, Tangerine Dream, King Crimson, Moody Blues, Manfred Mann,
Strawbs, Traffic, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Gentle
Giant, Jethro Tull, Larry Fast (says he still has it), J M Jarre
(recently seen on German TV with his M400 and is still touring
them), Barclay James Harvest, England, Pallas, Peter Sellers and
(allegedly) Princess Margaret!
For most people the Mellotron finally faded into oblivion in
the eighties, replaced by affordable solid-state samplers and
keyboards. Mellotrons ended up being scrapped off or were left
abandoned in squalid conditions in damp cellars and dusty
However this is not the end of the story as the Mellotron has
recently seen a revival in it''s fortunes in recent years. Quite
fashionable people are starting to rediscover it''s unique sound
(check out Oasis, Radiohead, Julian Cope and Node to name but
few). Sadly this has caused a considerable hike in the price of
a Mellotron here in the UK so expect to pay at least 700 pounds
M400 (probably in dire need of repair) and about 3000 pounds for
one that has been professionally restored by Streetly Electronics
(restarted by John Bradley, Les Bradley''s son, who know all there
is to know about Mellotrons).
