What Mellotron sound is this?

Hello. I've been trying to find this sound for weeks. Can anyone tell me what type of sound is this? Does Arturia V have it as a preset? I've been thinking of it as an accordion kind of sound. The sound starts at the beginning of this live performance:

Watch the whole thing for some history or skip to 5:00 in for your answer

There's no Harmonium available for Mellotrons from either company. It's probably Streetly's American Pump Organ.

Edit: On second thought, it could be "Harmonium" because in other videos, it looks like he's using a fake Mellotron (MIDI keyboard in an M400-type case).

That keyboard is just a prop. Not a real Mellotron. Missing the 2 cutouts on the top rear for sliding your hands in to pull the lid off. Essential for any real Mellotron.

I don't know of any. Try searching the kvraudio samples/sampler forum.

I have a similar question. I'm trying to find out what instrument this is from :40 to 1:18




I think it is the same (but maybe not) instrument as used in this much loved Lai megahit (which I don't know exactly what that one is either):




Anyone have an idea what organ-like instrument (or if different instruments) exactly this is?

Hi,donato

This is not exactly the same, but it seems that you can create similar sounds.

This is Mellotron V.
an example of editing a preset.

Decay and release settings, tone, pitch settings are the points.
In particular, the pitch setting helps to compensate for the playback pitch of Mellotron.
I think that adding NOISE FLOOR will bring the image of the times closer.

Synthesizers have the fun of imitating sound.

It's probably some kind of electronic theatre organ in both cases. The first one may even be some preset-synth/keyboard.
