Audio Plugin Deals is kicking off its 12 Days of Christmas promotion with a 50% discount on the Mellotron V by Arturia, a psychedelic analog sampler instrument that brings the sounds of the tape-based orchestra keyboard from the ’60s.

The virtual instrument comes with 65 original tape racks from MKI/MKII/M300/M400 Mellotrons.

Long before synths, the Mellotron put an orchestra at the keyboardist’s command using tape recordings of real instruments. Mellotron V harnesses all of its lo-fi goodness in an authentic virtual instrument, respectfully enhanced for modern music-making.

Its unheard-of realism was infused with the quirks of each key playing a moving analog tape, creating a sound that went down in history with The Beatles, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and countless others. Mellotron V brings that history, with every beautiful sonic imperfection, to your musical future

Regularly $149 USD, Mellotron V for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale for only $75 USD until January 2nd, 2023.
