Mellotronics M3000 HD – Clare Lindley Violin Collection

April 3, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Clare Lindley, ferocious and fabulous fiddler with Stackridge, showcases her mellower classical side in this glorious, rich and nuanced collection of voices for the M3000. Recorded and engineered in Bath at the studio of her bandmate Glenn Tommey, the Clare Lindley Violin Collection is a unique collection of string sounds, and is the first time a large set of 35 semitone mellotron tapes has been created around a single artist’s performances.

By recording everything in a single, marathon session, we have maintained excellent tonal consistency of sound between the 7 unique voices, which are also provided pre-mixed as 3 ‘ensemble’ voices to provide 10 voices in total.

As is traditional, the test tune is LJ Rich’s wonderful ’30 Shades of Tron’, the official M3000 HD theme tune. Movement between AB and C is happening during ‘Oscillotron’ mode (when the touch rotary control is off-screen) by manipulating the the Mod wheel on the attached MIDI keyboard. ABC tron is moving betwen Pizzicato, Spiccato and the ‘soft, no vibrato Arco’ voices, Tron D plays ‘Ensemble1’, which is a blend of 2 different ‘soft, no vibrato Arco’ voices, and has a remarkable French Horn / Colliery Brass kind of sound. The very soft attacks lead to a surprisingly non-violin sound, which forms beautiful low-level beds underneath just about anything, and the surprising nature of this particular voice was a real bonus, discovered only during mastering of the recordings.

The Clare Lindley Violin Collection is in Review with Apple, and will be available an in-app purchase for owners of Mellotronics M3000 HD running iOS 7 or above.
