Mellotron V is great at what it does, but there are a few things that it does not seem to offer in terms of a “pure” hardware emulation (unless I have missed something). These would make really great additions to it in a future version. I have broken them down into multiple requests so that people can comment individually on them:
Option to be able to do “braking” as was done by some players using the flywheel mechanism - this could be done with a switch to select aftertouch, pitchbend or even taking over the modwheel to control the “pressure” on the flywheel, or even making the flywheel “active” so CC could be assigned to it. This would add even more realism to the emulation with some really nice effects.
