Electro-Harmonix Mel9 Tape Replay MachineElectro-Harmonix
The otherworldly sound of the Mellotron has captivated listeners since the 60’s, with sounds sourced from real instruments and transferred onto tape reels giving it that slightly lo-fi, warbly magic! The machines themselves were rather clunky in terms of mechanical operation, having to have a separate tape reel for every single note for every tone. If you wanted to add another sound to your mellotron, you’d have to buy a whole separate set of tape reels! In recent years, DSP technology has come a far way in emulating the quirky magic of analog tones, and it is now practically impossible to tell the difference between the highest quality digital emulation and the “real thing.” With the Mel 9, you can have access to seven classic Mellotron settings at the tip of your guitar or keyboard playing fingers!
