Mellotron M4000D - Card 03

John L Rice

"These are the sounds available on the Mellotron M4000D expansion card number 3, 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 Solo Harp
1:20 Gino Vanelli Strings
7:34 Lead Sounds / Sound Effects
19:46 Music Master 600 Rhythms
24:40 Music Master 500 Rhythms/Accompaniments

The Mellotron company has a SoundCloud account and they have a lot of nice examples of the sounds on their available expansion cards, check it out!

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:"

  1. It seems wrong for Mellotron to be made anywhere but England.
