Mellowsound is an emulation of a legendary instrument, a keyboard sampler from the 60s used by many famous artists like the Beatles, David Bowie, Radiohead and many others, this mythic instrument is called The Mellotron. You probably never heard his name but the melodies created with it are mythical.
As we have the chance to own a Mellotron M400, we wanted to share with you this unique sound, so we sampled all the notes from our beloved Mellotron, one by one, for all the instruments tapes.
With Mellowsound, you will be able to play Mellotron on your Mac with professional audio quality (16bit/44Khz), as a standalone app, or in your favorite DAW as an Audio Unit.
In the same spirit, we designed a smooth and photo-realistic user-interface as an homage to our dear Mellotron.
-18 instruments (including Sad Strings, Electric guitar, Vibraphone and many more…)
-Classical Mellotron settings: Volume, Tone & Pitch
-3 FX: Tremolo, Delay & Reverb
-Mixer (instrument & Metronome, Volume & Pan)

Soon coming: more Fx & ADSR envelope control!
We hope you’ll enjoy it!
Ratings and Reviews
Only on pitch in 44.1KHz for now at least
If you load it into a 48KHz or 96KHz session it will pitch up, you have to work at 44.1 to be on pitch (88.2 will be an octave up). They need a realtime SRC to support the higher speeds which I guess they don't have handy. There is enough pitch knob to get 48KHz back onto pitch manually. At this price it isn't too much of a hassle to record separately and SRC manually if needed. But worth noting. This has more sounds sampled than the Logic Mellotron and sounds a bit different. Everything else seems to work OK.
