I know the excitement of version 1.2's new features has been a bit overwhelming recently, but in case you all forgot, 1.1 has been in review since about 1978 ... or that's how it feels. But now she has left review and became ready for sale!
To recap - better looping, more voices, and four new voices derived from actual Mellotron samples. Go grab the update!

Yay! Now - assuming it doesn't get rejected - all bound for MuMu Land. Otherwise known as Ellatron 1.2.
Version 1.1 features samples cooked by an all-new looping algorithm that has allowed me to reduce the length of some existing samples with no quality decrease, and therefore find room to squeeze in some additional samples, which - wait for it - have been actually sampled from a genuine Mellotron! We stuck with the old favourites, mixed choir, brass, strings and flute, and left the original EllaChoir etc. voices in place - so Ellatron now features a brain-melting 22 voices. How's that for $2.99!!

But don't get too excited - the 'great new features' will now be rolled into version 1.2, version 1.1 features a *great* new voice, a refresh of some of the existing voices (REAL MELLOTRON SAMPLES folks!!) and all the 'Ella' family samples have been relooped with an all new looperizer for (in our ears) much nicer looped results.
So, definitely worthy of a refresh into the store, will test for a while and submit in the next couple of days.

There are some neat changes coming into version 1.1, but it's not going as quickly as we thought it would - the 3D underpinnings of the UI are having to be ripped out and reinstalled to introduce a couple of much-requested features, and to pave the way for the sequencer in version 2.
We will keep you posted ... but keep watching this space!
