Mellotron M4000D - Card 02

John L Rice

"These are the sounds available on the Mellotron M4000D expansion card number 2, which will work in the original full sized M4000D, the Mini M4000D, and the M4000D Rack. (expansion cards are not compatible with the Mellotron Micro). I made this video so people that are interested in purchasing the card can get a general idea of what's on it.

0:00 Introduction with accordion
1:00 Wind instruments
5:05 Artist sound effects *
10:08 Wine Glasses
10:58 Keyboard instruments
14:45 Orchestral percussion
18:04 Spanish guitar
18:35 Accompaniments
31:17 Strings
34:27 Voices

* two years ago (August 2018) another person posted detailed videos of the artist sound effects collections, which is why I didn't take the time to clearly demonstrate them here:

On this card there are individual sounds that can be played "normally" (solos and chords as on a piano or organ etc) and then there are sounds that are to be played one key at a time because they are either predefined chords or an accompaniment section. Accompaniments might be a single instrument like guitar or an entire band. There are also keys that that have percussion parts, sound effects, and melodic full band fills for intros and outros.

As always, thank you for watching, rating and commenting! 😎 If you are able to, please consider 'buying me a coffee' if you found this content helpful or entertaining:"
