This second installment of Puremagnetik's Microtron series brings three classic sounds of the Mellotron M400 tapes direct to your DAW. Puremagnetik tell us that Tape 2 integrates perfectly with their Microtron Tape 1 released earlier in 2009. They say that Microtron Tape 2 contains an expertly recorded Flute, Cello and Octave Recorders library and that all of the original imperfections, vintage analog quality and technical nuances of the Mellotron M400 have been immaculately captured through a Neumann U47 Microphone and Reeves Custom 50 Amplifier.
Here's more details directly from Puremagnetik...
Microtron Tape 2 for Ableton Live is natively programmed in Live. It builds upon Live's rack features to create the same sound blending possibilities as can be achieved with a physical Mellotron. Native Live effects are completely integrated with multisample mode racks so that any Live 7 or 8 user can instantly load these sounds.
In addition, Microtron Tape 2 includes 50 Live Clips performed by professional studio keyboardists. Each clip comes preprogrammed with the multi sound Microtron rack for the most flexibility and editing possibilities.
Microtron Tape 2 for Kontakt comes with a selectable multi sound instrument with custom KSP editing features and Kontakt native effects. The Kontakt download also includes over 40 tempo-synced Apple Loops that can be dropped directly into Kontakt or played in the environment of your choice. (For native Apple SIAL loops be sure to download the Logic version).
Microtron Tape 2 for Logic includes three EXS instruments as channel strips that instantly install into the Logic library and a collection of over 40 SIAL Apple Loops.
