Artifake_Labs has released
a Special Edition of the Redtron_400.
It's free and is available for Windows as a VST
This VST plug-in uses the Taijiguy's
Mellotron samples (taken from a 1973 Mellotron M400S
- Serial #500). The samples have been cleaned (not

sound is eight seconds long with, in many cases,
"the bad endings".
Exclusive "Mellotronic Click" switch. On
real Mellotrons, "Click" can be heard at the

here randomly generated, so you don't hear twice
the same and they can appear on any key; A
rotary knob allows you to control the effect
intensity (of course, you can also completely
Layer (two sounds A & B) and split
possibilities (octave shift).
