Before sampling, there was tape…
Tape MELLO-FI’s sound and behavior is inspired by Mellotron V, our software recreation of the legendary Mellotron instrument.

The combination of tape reels, analog circuitry, and aging over time gave the Mellotron a distinct sound. Fluttering, grainy, compressed; these qualities have become an endearing part of the ‘Tron sound. Altering signals with style… Pitchy flutters, subtle distortion, warm saturation, velvety smooth filtered sounds; Tape MELLO-FI captures the uniquely imperfect behavior of tape in perfect detail, distilled into a single plugin.
