The thing with the M4000D is that while it uses pristine transfers of the original tapes it models the characteristics of different machines in various conditions. I can't speak for how good that modelling is, but it makes sense to start with clean samples if you're going to use filtering and modulation to make the sound more authentic. That's why I don't really get the "ya but it doesn't use the Streetly samples" thing. They weren't trying to mimic one specific machine in one specific condition.

Yes I meant to mention that too, you can change between various
Mellotron models in settings , so it’s not just like it came off
Pristine tape.

Either way I love my M4000D mini I used it all over my last album.

Are we still loving the M4000D over the M-Tron Pro in 2021? I’m looking to make the jump to an M4000D mini soon and would love some more insight. Thank you

I always return to my M4000D even though I have M-tron Pro as well. I purchased the latter with the goal of selling my M4000D and while initially thrilled I just keep preferring the sound of the M4000D and have no plans to get rid of it.

Do you want software or do you want hardware? And if the latter, do you want pristine tape transfers or samples run through an m400? They all sound good, it's just up to what you want.

Wow it sounds that much better? That’s good to know, I think I will just make the purchase

NO, I wouldn’t say it sounds THAT much better, I just prefer it, don’t know why really. It’s more compelling to me from a hardware and sound perspective, but I’m not saying I would pick it out in a blind test.

Gotcha! Maybe the tactile feel helps connect you with the instrument more.
