As for the collection volume 2

Olivier N., 06.12.2012
Even topo with the sound of Eminent Equinoxe ... Moog Taurus polyphonic ... It is only good and a grain that is not found elsewhere. Certainly there are not many samples but it is the sturdy.

Note that the compact flash removes very well from the keyboard and there is no need to fight as I read elsewhere.

Sound collection of the "slightly different" Mellotron ...

Andreas1871, 23.10.2015
The "Vintage Sound Collection 3" looks like the "ugly duckling" in the meantime under the now 7 CD-ROM editions one of the digital hardware successors of the legendary analog predecessors under the soundampler with the gargant "goose bump" ,

Cost of each CD: approx. 79 EUR or - for "double CDs" like the "Berlin School Collection" 149 EUR (Tip: Thomann already has a CD as a "B-Stock" cheaper! on!). Each CD-ROM contains 12-13 or 24 individual sounds, which can be freely combined in the ROM memory of the memotron in so-called "frames" a 3 individual sounds and can also be stored and saved on a flash memory card That one does not always have to load the appropriate CD-with the desired Sounfs every time. All sounds can be played "style-real" limited for 8 seconds (... like the edge on 3 sounds per frame a reminiscence of the play feeling and authenticity of the original Mellotron!), Before the key has to press again. However, the tron ??players are developing a re-engineering technique that masks the 8-sec. Limmitization of the sound.
The sounds have been stored i. 16-bit quality, neither looped nor shortened, almost identical to original sounds (incl. Characteristic sound characteristics & are without exception from original tape frames of different lovingly restored and technically best-maintained original mellotrone.) All Memotrone were as special "Schmankerl" (Moody Blues keyboarder Mike Pinder has built himself on his Mellotron with painstaking craftsmanship, the "Bandpeed" is reduced by half, entpr. To the M4000D devices with a "halfspeed" function. New, very gloomy sounds, sound effects and a doubled playing time can be achieved.

What else is there to be? - The person responsible for the sound library of the Memotron at Manikin is Klaus Hoffmann-Hook, is / was, for his part, a long-recognized Mellotron expert, owner of more than 40 Mellotrons, has a fine selection of original sound band As a frame is a battery composed of 3 instrumental sounds / noise etc. in the case of tape reels in the case, which can be installed and then played with the original), the (and here is interesting!) With him NOT ONLY from factory sounds of Streetly Electronics (on which the M4000 did indeed go back!), But also a whole series of special items, which according to the wishes of the respective artists were partly created by themselves, at the time individually and prepared for the Mellotron. The names of the customers were such illustrious names as the pioneers of the German electronic sound "Tangerine Dream", "Klaus Schulze", but also "Jean-Michel Jarre", "King Crimson", and so on It is also a good idea to use genuine vintage sounds, which are called timeless album classics, "Oxygen" and "Equnoxe" (JM Jarre) or "In the Court of the Crimson King" (King Crimson) Knows, or should know!

Whether one is worth the financial multi-inversion for the corresponding CD-Roms is left to everyone (but, I think, who is already a vintage freak, that he is against the software Mellotron expanders, yes Also enough (of which, by the way, many are also usable on the memotron ...).

The "Vintage 3 Collection" (in comparison to the "ugly duckling"!) Offers a selection of 13 of the mostly predominantly less well-known / spectacular sounds, which are for this very reason the main part of the eternal choirs and strings ( In the most diverse compilations).
Samples of a solo bassoon ("bassoon" sound, very medieval - ideal for folk or gothic "song"), "clarinet", "tenor saxophone" (with goose-specific timbre), "brass", "MKII piano ", A harpsichord (sounds slightly washed-out ...), a chime, a vibraphone (without vibrato), and a" Taurus-Moog "bass pedal and the legendary" Equinoxe "strings by JM Jarre, the MK II Accordion Bass "Tony Banks is a" bass "for his awesome intro to Watcher of the Skies -Welcher Progfan does not know the thing - a superfluous rock guitar & - my secret tip, a" Roland-Vocoder-Plus "-Chor, that's Mike Oldfield & Vangelis!
All sounds are impeccable quality & (I could times directly compare!) Sound almost identical with the pendants of an original Mellotrons. And - do not hit me dead - I liked the sounds of Memotrons really better than the v. M4000!
- therefore: quality before quantity! - I stay with the Memotron as a sound favorite despite the extra bonus!
