The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical, polyphonic tape replay keyboard from 1963 that became popular after the Beatles had used it on some of their songs. This bundle contains 10 Live Packs full of Mellotron sounds. Each note was individually sampled

The "B3 Organ" Live Pack contains 2 fully macro mapped Instrument Racks as well as a raw Simpler preset. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
