What's your latest purchase & what are your intentions with it?

I hear that. have a bunch of vintage stuff and maintenance is definitely a part of ownership. something you have to either choose to live with or decide you can’t. totally get your decision.

funny you mention the Polysix, I adore that one too. it’s a funny counterpart to the M/P, in that there’s tons to explore in the M/P and very little in the P6; but it pretty much sounds awesome no matter what you do.

My latest purchase I got are roland drum triggers so I can play an analog rtym mk2 with my real kit.


#195

Share the track :slight_smile:


#196

Be sure to check this one!

it’s enough to bring tears to my eyes!


#197

I was trying to determine the difference between the mini and the micro

This is just idealized dreaming for the day when I have deeper pockets(and have completed my modular system :smiley:)

One way or another, I don’t think I’m owning a mellotron.

I do have the plugin though, so at least I have a sound source for those sweet tones!


#198

For empty pockets their is also the CD or DVD whitch also contains the same original samples-from-the-master-tapes. as found on the mini, the micro and the rack, and nowhere else

you could then build your own mellotron in kontakt or such :wink:


#199

That would certainly be more convenient than having to use the plugin I have!


#200

Ah, which one do you use? do you like the sound?
The 4000d soundbank is a proiori much clearer sounding, less “vintage” because it reproduces the original master tapes. on the opposite most VST soundbanks are sampled from vintage machines.
i would never have thougth this at the beggining, but I found myself liking the clean sound a lot! This is why I went for the 4000d
I guess this won’t be the case for everyone though!

GForce MTron Pro

It sounds great! I just haven’t gotten fully used to exploring but and the interface is kinda antiquated


#202

just delivered.
will be a pair with my Command Station for a live rig to occupy all 12 channels of the mixer.


#203

wow, really cool. Love the Mellotron sounds


#204

Where can you get them? I was thinking about getting one just in case mine starts acting up.


#205

DSI Evolver - awe inspiring sound with unfamiliar features, huge modulation possibilities and wicked sequencers.
Analog Rytm - atm just defining a workflow, and discovering just how much better a ‘drum computer’ it is than the DT.
Still, I’ll use them all to create some boring techno and challenge myself with something more esoteric/ filmic.


#206

Sample-based Nord keyboards (eg.: Electro series) come with many well-crafted Mellotron samples. I’d get a second hand Electro 4D anytime before considering this unit.

#207

Finally got a Keystep with the intention to do some dawless sequencing of sequencerless polysynths like my System-1 or Kingkorg. :slight_smile:


#208

Great alternative. But as many vst plugins alternatives this not exactly the same thing.

The mellotron 4000d is the direct digitalized sound of the master tapes (clearer) runnning through a mellotron behaviour modelisation (via polyaftertouch, modulation…).


#209

Following up on this, after getting the unit and having used it a lil bit. The KT pultec is easily worth the modest 200€ (the new iPad pro keyboard covers cost the same lol)

A go-to on my vox recording chain for now, at least until I get the SA1073EQ.

Not sure I like the KT on the master, its quite coloured, although it doess add lowend bloom and “3D spatiality” to program material… Something about the texture of the sonics, quite coloured sound, wouldn’t use it where transparency is required. Would be interesting to A/B against other pultec clones like the SA pultec and the tegeler audio units, surely they must sound more transparent?

So atm my intentions with this eq is to use it mostly on vocals & kick/bass, or to inject texture and grit to whichever sound benefits from it.


#210

Got myself a fancy new coffeemaker. My intentions are to make way too much coffee and stay up all night surrounded by blinking lights.


#211

Digitone! Just picked it up 30 minutes ago. Bought the Octatrack MKII last week. This will go with the TR8S, SH01-A, and Strymon Timeline from two weeks ago.

I’m moving to first all hardware setup and I’m loving it! The OT is so much fun and I’m only just getting started :smiley:

Chicken Pad See Ew. I may eat it for lunch, or I may let it eat me for lunch.
