RedTron_SE is a Special Edition of the RedTron_400. This VST plug-in uses the Taijiguy's Mellotron samples (taken from a 1973 Mellotron M400S - Serial #500). The samples have been cleaned (not too much) by removing an annoying 60Hz hum and some unwanted "clicks" and "pops" here and there.

Features :

  • Nine sound types: MKII Flute, MKII 3 Violins, M400 Cello, MKII Brass, M400 Combined Choir, M400 String Section, M400 Woodwinds, M300A Violins, M300B Violin.
  • No loops: as the original Mellotron, each sound is eight seconds long with, in many cases, "the bad endings".
  • Exclusive "Mellotronic Click Switch" (MCS). On real Mellotrons, "Click" can be heard at the beginning of a note, when the tape comes in contact with the replay head. On REDTRON_SE, these "clicks " are randomly generated when you hit a key : you don't hear twice the same and they can appear on any note. A rotary knob allows you to control the effect intensity (of course, you can also completely disable it ). Note : this function is inactive when the attack parameter is set to any value different from zero.
  • Layer (two sounds A & B) and split possibilities (octave shift).
  • Independent parameters for sound A & B:
    • Volume, Tone, Pan, Tune, Reverb, Delay, Attack & Release, Octave & Note parameters.
    • Delay effect (Amount, Time, Feedback & Pan parameters).
    • Reverb effect (Mix, Width, Size & Damp parameters).
  • Global Volume control.
  • Global Tone control.
  • Global Pitch control.

The best mellotron freeware evere made. I remeber old VST's in 2000's...300 euros for a mellotron emulator...Now times are changed...

All sounds are recreated and sampled very well. The graphig interface is also very inspiring. We can't ask more from a freeware instrument as Red tron.

I found mellotron very inspiring in my compositions. Try some low register flute sounds, add delays and amp sim and you'll have a strange but warm pad sound
