M3000 has arrived

The rather awesome M3000 from Omenie has arrived. Here’s what you’ll find on your iPad:

The only licensed mellotron on the App Store.

Streetly Mellotronics (inventors and manufacturers of the original mellotron) and Omenie Software (creators of Ellatron for iPhone) have joined forces to create the M3000, the most accurate and thorough digital simulation of the classic 1960s tape replay instrument, and it is available exclusively for the iPad.

Streetly have for the first time made their entire production tape vault available under license, and the M3000 features a huge and rich collection of 13 original voices. All 35 notes of each voice have been accurately sampled, and the tapes were painstakingly reviewed for maximum tuning accuracy and playability. These tapes are the genuine article, real deal, straight from the vault – with M3000 you get *EXACTLY* the sound that was used on Strawberry Fields, Nights in White Satin, Watcher of the Skies, Odessey and Oracle …

Tone, pitch, volume and A/B/C voice controls are available, presented in the style of a classic M400. Even better, the A/B/C switch is improved upon with the introduction of continuous blending to support an infinite* variety of blended tones.

M3000 also builds from Ellatron – the core audio engine is derived from Ellatron, and Ellatron’s Chord Pads are retained. 4 voices may be held in memory at once, allowing a blended A/B/C bed to be played on the chord pads with a separate Tron playing the melody line. The addition of a rich, luscious stereo reverb allows the M3000 to be used as a performance instrument with no outboard effects chain.

M3000 for iPad. No bells. No whistles. No cats. Just pure, musical, Mellotronic joy.

It’s like the 1970s never happened. Relive 1967 forever with the Mellotronics M3000.

  1. I am really enjoying this app and now that the chord level issue has been quickly resolved I'm very happy. Easy to learn by watching the youtube demo. Sampled Mellotron sounds are excellent. Well worth the $11.99 US price tag in my opinion.
