Artifake_Labs has released Redtron_SE, a Special Edition of the Redtron_400. It's free and is available for Windows as a VST Instrument plug-in.

This VST plug-in uses the Taijiguy's Mellotron samples (taken from a 1973 Mellotron M400S - Serial #500). The samples have been cleaned (not too much) by removing an annoying 60Hz hum and some unwanted clicks and pops here and there.


  • Nine sound types: MKII Flute, MKII 3 Violins, M400 Cello, MKII Brass, M400 Combined Choir, M400 String Section, M400 Woodwinds, M300A Violins, M300B Violin.
  • No loops: as the original Mellotron, each sound is eight seconds long with, in many cases, the bad endings.
  • Exclusive Mellotronic Click switch. On real Mellotrons, Click can be heard at the beginning of a note, when the tape comes in contact with the replay head. These clicks are here randomly generated, so you don't hear twice the same and they can appear on any key; A rotary knob allows you to control the effect intensity (of course, you can also completely disable it).
  • Layer (two sounds A & B) and split possibilities (octave shift).
  • Independent parameters for sound A & B:
    • Volume, Tone, Pan, Tune, Reverb, Delay, Attack & Release, Octave & Note parameters.
    • Delay effect (Amount, Time, Feedback & Pan parameters).
    • Reverb effect (Mix, Width, Size & Damp parameters).
  • Global Volume control.
  • Global Tone control.
  • Global Pitch control.
