Over the past eight years the Musicians and Programmers at Vintage Keyboard Sounds have been developing pristine audio samples of vintage keyboard musical instruments. These samples are of such high quality that they have been used on numerous recordings and live performances (including the current Band of Horses tour). We are now offering these very same samples to you -- priced at a very reasonable cost so that every musician, no matter what their economic level may be, may have access to these classic sounds. Join the numerous recording artists who are now using our samples for their recordings and live performances. Complete sample libraries including our Mellotron Strings/Flutes/Cello/Choir/Brass, Vox Continental, Hammond B3, Gibson G101, Farfisa, and Elka Panther organs are now on sale here on EBay.

VintageKeyboardSounds.com presents Mellotron Flutes, Brass, and Cello Samples. This is Set B of our AUTHENTIC MELLOTRON SAMPLES from our own personal Mellotron SM400 (pictured). These samples are compatible with most hardware and software samplers.

The samples in this set include every key and note from the following voices: Strawberry Fields Flutes, Mixed Brass, and Cello.

This special offer for these sounds has been exclusively sanctioned by David Kean of Mellotron Archives. For a complete set of sounds of the Mark II Mellotron, go to: Mellotron.com. There you will find the excellent Mike Pinder CD that includes all the classic Mark II sounds.

The voices on sale in this auction includes Strawberry Fields Flutes, Mixed Brass, and Cello. These samples are outstanding examples of the classic Mellotron sound. Included are the vintage sounds of the Beatles, Moody Blues, Genesis, Yes, and King Crimson. The Flutes are from the Mark II Mellotron and are the same sounds used in the introduction of the Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever". They were also used in many Moody Blues songs including "Have You Heard?". The Mixed Brass can be heard on many prog rock songs including King Crimson's "Cirkus" and the Moodies' "I'm Just a Singer in a Rock n Roll Band". The Cello also originates from this instrument and can be heard on many recordings by the Moody Blues, Genesis, and Yes. 

Unlike most Mellotron samples, these samples have not been shortened or looped, so you get everything from every note! They include the complete 6-8 second duration of the entire length of tape from the initial attack to the end of the note (you may loop them yourself if you want a continuous sound).  To assure their authenticity we recorded them as-is -- with faint sounds of bows scraping, musicians breathing, and other genuine Mellotron idiosyncrasies.

Most Mellotron sample banks give you only 6 or 9 multisamples that you must stretch over your entire keyboard... We send you all 35 samples for each sound. This is important to note as the Mellotron voices consist of 35 separate performances (one for each key of the Mellotron). This is what gives the Mellotron its distinctive sound as the separate performances mix with each other in chordal passages, and sound individual from one another when playing string motifs and arpeggios. Listen closely to In the Court of the Crimson King and you will hear what we mean.

These samples will be delivered to you on CD. We are including wave (.wav) files that will play on most samplers. Each file is approximately 750 KB. Contact us if you prefer digital delivery. Email us if you need a specific sample format.

These samples are compatible with any hardware sampler that reads wave files, including the Yamaha Motif Classic, ES, and XS, Roland Fantom, Korg Triton, M1, and Oasys, and many Kurzweil, E-mu, and Akai samplers. They are also compatible with most of the leading software samplers, including Reason, Protools, MOTU, SampleCell, Giga, SoundFont, Sound Forge, Logic, Native Instruments, Acid, Halion, E-mu, Cakewalk, Sonar, and Cubase.

You will be amazed to hear Nights in White Satin, In the Court of the Crimson King, Epitaph, Tuesday Afternoon, Space Oddity, and Close to the Edge the way they are supposed to sound. 

JUDGE FOR YOURSELF! Go to VintageKeyboardSounds.com for more information on this product and to hear a few notes from these samples. You may also order these samples on CD at this site.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!  Check out our 100% satisfaction feedback rating. If you are not satisfied for any reason, send back the CD and we will gladly refund the purchase price (minus shipping and insurance). California residents, please add  Sales Tax. Thank you!

NOTES:  The Mellotron pictured in this auction is not for sale. The samples originate from our Mellotron that resides in our studio. This Mellotron lived most of its life safely tucked away in the corner of a recording studio and was never on tour or abused by burned out progressive rockers. This is why it looks and sounds so good.

Garageband Users:  Apple's Garageband was not designed to play third-party samples as Garageband instruments. To do this you need a utility called Polyphontics (sold on the internet for $35).

The sounds in this collection were sampled, compiled, and constructed within the sampler by VintageKeyboardSounds. Sounds may be used freely. Performances are Copyright 2004-2011 by David Jacques. Reproduction and subsequent resale of this collection is prohibited. "Mellotron" is a registered trademark and cannot be used without permission.

Typical customer feedback for these samples:

Thanks again for the great mellotron sounds. Loaded up the brass and played Cirkus, loaded up the flutes and played Strawberry Fields Forever!

I have dreamed of owning a Mellotron since the 70's fully knowing I could never afford one! You have made my dream a bit closer to a reality with your awesome Mellotron sample set. I recently purchased your strings/choir disc and it send chills up and down my spine listening to it!

I have just received the two sets of Mellotron samples that you sent to me last week. I'm writing to say thank you ever so much. They are wonderful. I am delighted. They completely cane the arse off any of the other (overpriced) Mellotron samples I have heard, so precise, thorough and detailed not to mention the fact that they actually are complete. The two sets are so perfect that I believe that I can hear the sound of love in them. And another thing, I like the fact that you included a bit of a write up with the samples, tips on textures and how our heroes got the sounds that we so want to emulate are most welcome. Thanks again.

I have my fave tron sounds from your collection all set to autoload on my Motif on startup...it's a dream come true for an old mellotron proghead like me...Thanks for making them available!

Killer mellotron samples, thanx!

I just wanted to tell you how much I'm enjoying the Mellotron samples I recently purchased from you. They are fabulous! Loading them into my ES6 was very easy and I was up and playing in no time.  And I received them right away. 

It was great to get an instant response to my order confirming receipt of money and shipment details - great customer service. The product arrived exactly as, and when, expected. The product was exactly as specified on your web page. The samples are excellent with seamless, no-click loops as specified. I was able to create my first "B3 Rock Hammond" sound in no time as all files and folders have been organised so well. I highly recommend dealing with VintageKeyboardSounds - good reliable customer service and excellent products.
