Sono Elements has announced the release of eTron Pro, a plugin emulation featuring 17 multi-sampled sounds of the classic instrument.

Each sound can be modified using an amplitude ADSR, a tremolo, a lowpass filter, a simple reverb as well as a lofi noises engine.

eTron Pro features the sound of the classic Mellotron keyboard. The Mellotron was a tape-based keyboard created in England in the early sixties. The instrument was ahead of its time in its use of pre-recorded sounds and has been used by such acts as Tangerine Dream, The Beatles, Robert Fripp, The Rolling Stones, King Crimson, and Genesis.

Later on, during the 90s, Oasis and Radiohead used it in their music to create their classic records Morning Glory and OK Computer. Sono Elements sampled 17 of the best Mellotron sounds and embedded them in a “no fuss” easy to use plugin.

eTron Pro is available in VST/VST3 and AU formats for Windows and macOS, priced at $29 USD.
