EHX Mel9 Mellotron Emulator Pedal

The Mel9, from Electro-Harmonix, is a mellotron emulator that brings the distinct sound of tape strings to any pedalboard setup. It implements polyphonic pitch tracking that adeptly alters the sound of a guitar or keyboard into that of a mellotron. Users can fine-tune their tone to taste via the Dry and Effect level controls, as well as govern attack and sustain parameters with the corresponding knobs. For those looking to drench their sound in shimmering psychedelic sensuousness, the Mel9 is just what the doctor ordered.

Electro Harmonix MEL 9 Mellotron Emulator
The Electro Harmonix MEL9, put simply, is an incredible emulation of the classic tape-based keyboard, the Mellotron. The Mellotron was famously used by the Beatles, King Crimson, Tangerine Dream, and many more. And now, you can have the sound of tape strings and more without even having a keyboard.

Like the B9, C9, and KEY9, the MEL9 makes use of EHX's legendary polyphonic pitch tracking to turn the sound of your guitar or keyboard into the sound of a Mellotron with shockingly good results. The Dry and Effect level controls allow a mix of your guitar and the MEL9 sound, while attack and sustain determine how long it takes the MEL9 sound to fade in and out.

If you want ethereal tape strings, flutes, or brass, or are a fan of the textures of classic Prog and psychedelic music, the MEL9 has a home in your rig.
