    Mellotron and Chamberlain samples?

    Does anyone have a line on some highly usable Mellotron and Chamberlain samples? I have a few in my library, including the ones on the Roland Expansion soundblock, but they are all less than awesome.

    I was thinking that there might even be a collection on deep discount somewhere... anyone have any ideas? I'm looking for all of the instruments... strings, choir, flutes, etc...

    Thanks.

    I just replied in the violin thread, but thought I should follow up here too. Check out MTron from GForce...

    If you have Reaktor 5, the latest update to that has a new "string ensemble" instrument that sounds fantastic for those kinds of uses.

    Man the Mellotron has such a cheesy lo-fi sound, I often wonder if it's worth resurrecting...

    Then I listen to the opening of "Watcher of the Skies" by Genesis (before Phil Collins ruined them ) and smile...

    At NAMM there were actual Mellotron's there, as well as libs with Mellotron samples, like MTron. The most interesting Mellotron entry was a small company that sold what looked like the top of a Mellotron (about 4 or 5 inches thick), small keyboard and all, with a digital Mellotron inside. It sounded like the real thing. Nice.
    I saw Genesis with Peter G. do Watchers of the Sky in a small venue. One of the best shows I ever went to. The song was awesome.
