Melloman: the DIY Walkman cassette Mellotron


http://mysterycircuits.com/melloman/melloman.html

From Engadget.com:

We should probably defer to Thom (who does our Music Thing column) on this one, but as soon as we saw the DIY Walkman cassette Mellotron, we knew we had to get the word out as quickly as possible. For the uninitiated, Mellotrons were the first sample-playback keyboards from way back in the early 60s, and used analog magnetic tape for audio playback on key presses. An idea totally ahead of its time, right? Well, chew on the Melloman, man, because it totally blew our minds.

This is MUCH more like it....one track of drums, and 25 tracks of keyboards....!

Funnily enough, I was listening to the MP3 samples when you posted...
I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with that!  I am so impressed, it has made a special appearance on my "Gear To Get" list.

When I've cleared a Debt, I WANT ONE!! ;D

Fantastic!
...Is this just a dream I'm in?
