If you’ve ever wished you could play the intros to The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields” or Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” correctly, now you can! IK Multimedia has just released SampleTron, a virtual instrument workstation featuring a 2-gigabyte collection of authentic Mellotron, Chamberlin, and other tape- or optical-based instruments from the 1960s. With 640 presets and 260 multi-samples from 17 rare and vintage Mellotrons, Chamberlins, and their derivatives like the Optigan, Rhythmaster, and more, this diverse library was sampled chromatically to capture the authentic tone of each instrument. You get all the sounds made famous in the ’60s and ’70s by the Moody Blues, Genesis, Yes, and more recently, by modern artists like Kanye West, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, and Beck. SampleTron offers powerful options with 32 built-in effects and the ability to use four effects per part, and includes IK’s exclusive STRETCH and synth algorithms, plus four Tron specific controls for fast and flexible creativity.
