Electro-Harmonix Mel9

I am so very excited about this. This is the only thing I want (besides whatever it is that Montreal Assembly is cooking up). EHX released the B9, C9, and Key9, which all do a pretty good job at emulating various organs and electric pianos. However, mellotrons are special. Back in the day, they were keyboards that essentially played samples from reels of tape. You loaded up a cello tape bank, you pressed the C on the keyboard, and a recording of a cello playing a C note would come out. This pudgy British man can explain it to you. I’ve got mellotron samples on my computer, so maybe I don’t need this, but it sure is cool. If it’s anything like previous models in the “9” series, it will cost about $220.
