How Many Mellotron and Chamberlin Sounds can I Load?

Postby iluvchiclets » 15 Apr 2019, 14:17

Hi everyone,

I've been intoxicated trying out all the Mellotron/Chamberlin sounds on the Stage 3 at my local music store. I'm now considering buying one.

I'm curious how many of these specific samples I can load at one time? I saw the numbers of the complete M/C set referenced in another thread - approx 700 to 850mb. The Stage 3 specs say it has 480 mb memory for samples, yet the Electro 6D has 512mb.

Is this correct ? I can load more samples into the Electro 6?

That count is the size of the whole Nord Sample Library v3 as of today, Mellotron and Chamberlin only are just a small portion of it (just go to to https://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-lib ... chamberlin and see.. 43MB...)

Oh - OK, thank you very much. I will look at the site to try and determine the size myself...I thought it might be hard to do.

I see there's quite a few more than that link shown above...all of the Chamberlin Harp arpeggios, the rhytym kits and fills...the Mellotron Master tapes. I'll have to figure out how to calculate all their sizes?

You have the complete sample sets on the Clavia website.

https://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-lib ... ollections

Admittedly it's a bit tricky to find with all the "archive", 2.0 and 3.0 sample sets, they really should put some order in the sample library.

Anyway it's there, just download all the sets, check how many total samples and Mb are there, and then start uploading them to your instrument and play away!

Thank you - I figured that scouring over the site with a calculator might be the only way...I was hoping I was missing something☺

It seems odd that the E6D could hold more samples than the Stage 3. I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something there as well...

Sorry, I didn't realize you meant all the M/C library not just the V3 I linked, anyway taking data from Nord website and make a few sums should be pretty quick to do.

With regards to memory, that's the way it is (maybe on NS3 those delta 32 MBs are not installed or used for other purposes by its Synth section)

Very interesting observation - some seperate memory for the synth samples maybe? I would like to have those as well!

Really, for $5000 CAD, it should not be a lot to ask to "have it all"☺

Synth samples in NS3 are the same .nsmp ... I rather think those 32 Mbs are used by the NS3 for storing anything else (Synth Programs, Setlist,... just speculating anyway, without the schematic and firmware of both is difficult to say..)

Let me also tell you that even if Nord would put 1Gb for synth samples, there will still be someone complaining why they didn't put 2 :roll: :mrgreen:
