EKX Mellotoon - Mellotron Model M400 - a whole orchestra in one instrument

15 individual stand-alone instruments, all sampled with great attention to detail from the legendary Mellotron Keyboard - the original that shaped countless hits by bands like The Beatles, The Moody Blues and King Crimson.

The Mellotoon EKX is based on the original Mellotron keyboard introduced in the early 1960s. This instrument was unique and the first of its kind, as it used samples of various real instruments to generate sound. However, of course, it didn't use a modern digital sampler; rather, the Mellotron's sounds came from magnetic tape loops played inside. Various sounds of pianos, strings, flutes and wind instruments were available - so to speak the first and early "tape-in-a-box" and thus a true sound revolution. Today, this gem of instrument history is enjoying an impressive resurgence in productions across a wide range of genres.

The Mellotoon EKX Soundlibrary extension for EZkeys 2 makes the sonic essence of this truly unique instrument available, offering a total of 15 different individual instruments, all sampled in great detail from an original Model M400 Mellotron (direct signals, amp signals and mix). In addition, the Mellotoon EKX includes a wide range of individual effects and presets of different signal chains - with this, the inspiring instruments can be transformed into completely new and fascinating sounds in no time.

Please note: This EKX sound library extension for EZkeys 2 is a so-called "Legacy EKX", as it was originally recorded as a former EZkeys 1 sound library. A "Legacy EKX" can be loaded and used in both the previous version EZkeys 1 and the current version EZkeys 2, unlike the soundlibrary extensions produced exclusively for EZkeys 2. Users who still use EZkeys 1 exclusively and do not want to switch to EZkeys 2 can still easily extend their existing EZkeys 1 with "Legacy EKXs".
