Streetly Electronics Mellotron for iOS

The Streetlytron ’63 Edition : genuine Mellotronics for your iPhone and iPad.

Brought to you in partnership with Streetly Electronics, the inventors of the mellotron, Streetlytron includes a massive collection of 63 tapes from Streetly’s Production Masters – exactly the same tapes that ship with their $8,000 M4000 unit.

Playable with the on-screen 3 octave keyboard or by an attached MIDI controller, Streetlytron 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.

To keep this remarkable app as small as possible, the in-app samples are recorded at minor third intervals, and most in-app samples are looped for continuous play, with a loop duration of 5 seconds. This results in almost 5x reduction in app size*, yet has virtually no audible difference between this ’63 Edition and the top-of-the-range Streetlytron Pro Edition. Sample replay within the app uses an advanced cubic spline interpolator, to delivery premium sonic quality.

Fixes for these have been with Apple SINCE AUGUST 30TH waiting for review – there seems to be an update logjam right now but we sincerely hope this new version will be with you inside a couple of days.

The comments about banks not being saved – there is a SAVE BANK button that saves the bank. A light flashes to warn you if a bank has been edited, and thus should be saved if you wish to preserve the information. User manual will be published as an iBook within a few days.
