Sono Elements eTron features the sound of the legendary Mellotron keyboard. The Mellotron was a tape-based keyboard created in the early sixties in England. 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 7 of the best Mellotron sounds and embedded them in a "no fuss" easy to use plugin.

Hear for yourself

No external audio effects have been used in the audio demo. This is the sound of eTron only.
