Put an authentic sounding mellotron in your iPhone

You don’t need to carry around a massive keyboard to play a mellotron on the go. This app puts the same level of quality into your iOS devices.

Brought to you in partnership with Streetly Electronics, the inventors of the mellotron, Streetlytron includes a massive collection of 90 tapes, with 65 drawn from Streetly’s Production Masters – exactly the same tapes that ship with their $8,000 M4000 unit. Completing the sample sets are our own very popular ‘Caitlin Downie Soprano’ and ‘Clare Lindley Violin’ collection, to offer a huge, rich selection of choral and string textures for your mixes.

Playable with the on-screen 3 octave keyboard or by an attached MIDI controller, Streetlytron Pro exposes every internal control to MIDI, allowing performance and recording without ever needing to touch your device. A gorgeous, silky-smooth, ultra-musical reverb unit generates immense spaces, and 8 programmable preset slots set you up for one-touch performance. Totally playable and totally inspiring, for everything from classic psychedelic, vintage progressive, modern chamber pop or avant-garde dance sounds.

Virtual MIDI, AudioBus and Inter-App Audio are supported.

No In-App Purchases, no hidden extra costs. Pay once, never pay again.

All voices are available in original form, straight from Streetly Electronics Production Tape library – unlooped 8 second samples, with a unique sample for every key of the 35 note range. To offer more performance flexibility the ‘LOOP’ button may be engaged, which process the samples to offer seamless looping. Some voices have decay tails – e.g pianos, harpsichord, staccato voices – and these are left unlooped. Streetlytron Pro Edition uses an advanced cubic spline interpolator, to delivery premium sonic quality when pitch bending or re-tuning.

The Mellotronics Streetlytron Pro by Omenie is available for $24.99 from the app store.
