Unlike the original Mellotron these 8 second samples have been perfectly looped for the modern world, however, the loops may be turned off to recapture the vintage effect of certain voices ending at variable times.

The Mellotron follows its direct ancestor the Chamberlin which was, in effect, the world's first sample-playback keyboard. The heart of the instrument is a bank of magnetic audio tapes (these original tapes were parallel linear, not looped as has sometimes been reported or presumed), each tape with approximately eight seconds of playing time; playback heads underneath each key enables performers to play the pre-recorded sound assigned to that key when pressed.
