MEL9

DESCRIPTION

Now any electric guitar player can have access to nine magically quirky, dark and unique Mellotron® sounds. No more extra devices such as special and cumbersome 13-pin MIDI pickups! In addition to electric guitar, you can trigger the MEL9 with any instrument that produces an electrical output, such as a keyboard or a bass, down to 55 Hz or A1.

The polyphonic EHX MEL9 has superior tracking; you can create single notes or chords with ease. The MEL9 will follow guitar bends, dive bombs, slurs, and any other guitar expression/performance techniques you can throw at it!

  • Pays homage to nine of the coolest Mellotron® sounds: Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, Low Choir and High Choir
  • Works on guitar without modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation and tracks bends, slides, even whammy dive bombs!
  • Also works with bass guitar down to the open A string as well as keyboards within the limits of its polyphony (5 notes) and range (A1 to A5)
  • Includes independent Effect and Dry volume controls so you can create the perfect mix at the Effects output
  • Dry Output jack outputs your input signal at unity gain
  • Attack control sets the volume swell speed. As it’s turned clockwise the notes fade in more gradually
  • Sustain control adjusts the release time after a sound is stopped. As it’s turned clockwise, the fade out time increase
  • Power adapter included
