Wow, I definately don't have a melatron, but I love the design of the instrument. Is there actually a tape (with more individual tracks) for each note on the keyboard? And does it rewind the individual tape after playing every individual note (because the note dies when holding for too long)? In that case I wonder why they didn't use a loop, but maybe that was to keep the transients when a note was initially hit every time?
Looooove seeing/reading about old instruments, that were used in famous songs. Thanks for sharing @Dutchbeat !
Cheers, love and peace!

Great Post - we take things for granted nowadays. This was state of the art at one point.
