Mel-Lofi is based on the Mellotron samples recorded by Taijiguy and brings a total of 23 presets distributed across 5 main instrument categories.

All the samples were slightly edited and most important, were looped for best playability. But even so, the sound remains rough and lo-fi, we wanted to keep the feel and sound of the original instrument.

As an extra, we added 4 original effect layers: vinyl, radio noise, mechanical belt noise, and rain. They each have on/off button and volume sliders, also they’re labeled with their corresponding note on the keyboard.

Mel-Lofi is available in VST/VST3 Windows and VST/VST3/AU macOS. It is compatible with the latest versions, also it is natively compatible with M1 chips.
  • 690 MB extracted size.
  • 23 instrument presets.
  • 4 additional fx layers.
  • Attack/release envelope.
  • Cutoff for lowpass/highpass filters.
  • Global tune.
  • Tremolo section.
  • Room reverb.
  • Global gain and pan.

These sound okay, some better than others. When you get the arturia midi controller it comes with Arturia Labs and there are a few Mellotron sounds from their paid synths that sound great, plus the tone wheel changes the sound in great ways.

Nice variety of sounds with this one. Probably the best free Mellotron plugin out there.
