Mellotronics Streetlytron Pro : the most authentic Mellotronics experience for your iPhone and iPad.
Brought to you in partnership with Streetly Electronics, the inventors of the mellotron, Streetlytron includes a massive collection of 90 tapes, with 65 drawn from Streetly's Production Masters - exactly the same tapes that ship with their $8,000 M4000 unit. Completing the sample sets are our own very popular 'Caitlin Downie Soprano' and 'Clare Lindley Violin' collection, to offer a huge, rich selection of choral and string textures for your mixes.
Playable with the on-screen 3 octave keyboard or by an attached MIDI controller, Streetlytron Pro exposes every internal control to MIDI, allowing performance and recording without ever needing to touch your device. A gorgeous, silky-smooth, ultra-musical reverb unit generates immense spaces, and 8 programmable preset slots set you up for one-touch performance. Totally playable and totally inspiring, for everything from classic psychedelic, vintage progressive, modern chamber pop or avant-garde dance sounds.
Virtual MIDI, AudioBus and Inter-App Audio are supported.
No In-App Purchases, no hidden extra costs. Pay once, never pay again.
All voices are available in original form, straight from Streetly Electronics Production Tape library - unlooped 8 second samples, with a unique sample for every key of the 35 note range. To offer more performance flexibility the 'LOOP' button may be engaged, which process the samples to offer seamless looping. Some voices have decay tails - e.g pianos, harpsichord, staccato voices - and these are left unlooped. Streetlytron Pro Edition uses an advanced cubic spline interpolator, to delivery premium sonic quality when pitch bending or retuning.

One minor update. Two settings have been added to give you absolute control over 48kHz / 44.1kHz operation. If you have a new 48kHz device and the pitch of the audio is consistently off you can override our algorithm and force an internal synthesis rate of 48kHz. Do this in Settings by setting both 'Force Synthesis Rate' to ON and setting 'Synthesize 48kHz' to ON. Synthesis can be similarly forced to 44.1kHz by by setting 'Force Synthesis Rate' to ON and setting 'Synthesize 48kHz' to OFF. If Force Synthesis Rate is off our internal algorthm will run to try to determine what frequency is best for your hardware and environment.
Ratings and Reviews
As a kid, I grew up searching for the special sounds that connected all of my favorite music from the 60s and 70s. It took a long while until I realized how many times that sound was the mellotron. Of course, it was some version of flutes and violins and horns, but the sound had a special quality that was wholly unique beyond the instruments of origin.
As a user of this company’s previous mellotron app M3000 and the desktop, M-Tron Pro I was curious about Streetlytron as a rebuild. I love the updated interface and think that it makes it really easy to select new sounds. I also like the 8 channels that you can save your presets to all neatly laid out. It really is user friendly, looks great, and sounds beautiful. I’m also excited about future upgrades that they’ve alluded to. Definitely worth a look!
I’m really diggin the “Three Cellos Louis” patch. Absolutely beautiful.
Sounds fantastic, the fidelity to the sound is clearly higher than the previous version of this app (which as not bad got an app). But this, this is road-worthy, for sure. The midi tweak-ability is outstanding. The interface is nicer too. My only tweak would be to have the ABC blend knob be done in an xy pad so one could blend all three voices, though maybe it’s too processor intensive. Good job!
good, gig worthy
This is an excellent stand in when you can't take your Mellotronics machine or a sample cd with you, just the thing for a fly rig. A ton of sounds and serious implementation. On older IPads there is a loading delay when you select sounds but what do you expect, it's not a Mellotron, a real Mellotron has tapes in it. This is a good app for when you can't cart in a real instrument.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
