Brandon Strader - String Chamellotron


The inspiration for this song was mainly the Mellotrons. I acquired and used GForce M-Tron quite heavily on this song. Mellotron vibes, flute, strings... even Mellotron fuzz guitar and ebow sounds. Mellotrons are the best sounds ever -- there's a type of nostalgia and legitimacy you get by using these sounds. It brings a tear to my eye. I love good Mellotron sounds so much. I claimed this song because, at the time, it was one that hadn't been claimed yet on the MMX project. I like making band-oriented songs that sound real, performed by humans... I will always love this song, and I've already listened to it dozens if not 100 times, because the Mellotrons turned it into something amazing that really appeals to me musically.
