Remaining faithful to the 35 note 8 second limitation of the original instrument, Re-Tron gives you direct access to 40 premium tape banks from the original British Mellotron® manufacturer and makers of the magnificent M4000, Streetly Electronics.

Use Re-Tron either as straightforward playback device for these iconic sounds, or, via the dual-layer and comprehensive editing features, create your own bespoke, hybrid 'tron patches which inject all the character from days gone by without the expense of owning and maintaining an original instrument.

Based on the multi-award winning M-Tron Pro, Re-Tron offers several unique features, including several tape banks that have never previously been released in any digital format, as well as the back-panel Modulation Inputs & Outputs and CV Gate control that Reason affords.
