Beyond the Mellotron

Used by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, King Crimson and many more. Newmello offers the same sound and behaviour than the original unit with new approaches in sound design and scripting in Kontakt.

Newmello I


New but gold

Newmello I brings you back to the sound that shaped an era, the Mellotron M400. This video screencast shows the 25 instruments included.

Main view

Noise control with two modes, blend two different tapes, attack and release knobs and a tilt EQ. 25 patches selectable from the screen display or go through the patches with your keyboard.


Originally, Mellotron samples only played for 8 seconds. Newmello I can behave like that or you can go beyond and loop them. Round robin and dynamics simulation, sample start offset and a purge knob. Total control over the instrument.
