For all who have this patch loaded on a SD, there’s case sensitivity issue with the file folders, that will prevent you from loading the flute and brass samples. You need to rename the MkIIFlute and MkIIBrass folders so that the “K” in each folder is uppercase instead of lowercase. I have now renamed the folders in this version of the patch, but as I don’t use an SD with my Organelle to load patches, I have no way to test this.
Update Rev.2: I redid the GUI and controls of this patch and now you can change instruments with the encoder. Be aware that you need OS.2.1 or newer to run this patch!!!!
Encoder let’s browse through the instruments, push to select. To go back to the root menu, scroll till you reach “back to root menu”… Knob 1 let’s you transpose the keyboard down an octave or two (handy if you use the Organelle keyboard) . Knob 2 let’s you choose between multiple envelopes. Knob 3 let’s you choose between Chorus effects. Knob 4 gives you control over the reverb mix.
You need to install samples for this patch to work!!!!
1. Download all the mellotron samples from this link: http://leisureland.us/mellotron.htm
2. Unzip samples
3. Drop samples in the corresponding folder of the patch (Put all the woodwind samples in the “woodwind” folder etc.)
4. Rename all the Bb files in the violin folder to A# (don’t forget the number) Sorry, for inconvenience but, the samples aren’t mine…
For those of you how already downloaded the samples: Just exchange the PD and text files…
This patch is largely based on Pierre Massat’s PD patch (https://guitarextended.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/yellotron-a-mellotron-with-pure-data/)
