    Get A Modern Update On A Classic With The Vox Continental 73-Key Stage Keyboard W/ Stand

    The original VOX Continental, a transistor organ that appeared in the 1960s, is a timeless classic beloved by top players as a practical keyboard with a home on any live stage. Now, a completely new keyboard that carries this concept into the present day has been again released by the VOX brand.

    The VOX Continental uses a simple and intuitive interface that allows quick accessibility of every function. The high-quality sound engine section is centered on organ, electric piano, and acoustic piano, and provides a wealth of stage-ready sounds. In addition, the Continental features a powerful effects section to enhance these sounds, and even analog valve drive powered by Nutube, the cutting-edge vacuum tube. It's an instrument that perfectly fits your live performance requirements for a variety of styles including rock, pop, jazz, and more.

    The air of tradition that emanates from VOX organs, together with the innovation of decades of research, down to the illuminated VOX logo shows the new VOX Continental is a fusion of both, redefining the existence of the modern stage keyboard.

    PURSUING ON-STAGE PLAYABILITY

    A live stage environment is a demanding performance space for a keyboardist. With an intuitive interface that's designed for on-stage playability, the VOX Continental gives you instant access to all functions from its front panel.

    The easily-understandable panel layout independently places the four parts (ORGAN, E.PIANO, PIANO, KEY/LAYER) and lets you instantly switch them between on, off, and layer states. Scene memories let you quickly recall programs and effects settings. You can use the touch sensors to control a variety of parameters in addition to the organ drawbars. All of this functionality is designed for players who performs daily on stage.

    AN ARRAY OF FOUR SOUND PARTS DELIVERS HIGH-QUALITY SOUNDS FOR LIVE USE

    With approximately 10 GB of high-capacity memory, the VOX Continental has 150 built-in programs carefully selected for live use, powered by its high-quality PCM sound engine and its sophisticated vintage sound modeling engine.

    ORGAN PART METICULOUSLY MODELS THREE VINTAGE ORGANS

    The ORGAN part contains three different sound engines. The VOX transistor organ sound engine perfectly reproduces the sound of the original VOX Continental that went on sale in the 1960s. The COMPACT reproduces every detail of another compact transistor organ from the same era as the VOX Continental. The CX-3 tonewheel organ sound engine faithfully models KORG's classic combo organ. These organ sounds let you use the revolutionary touch drawbars to freely control the harmonics and tone.

    The VOX and the CX-3 also let you switch between upper (upper keyboard) and lower (lower keyboard) and split at a single touch of a button. It goes without saying that the CX-3 provides percussion to create an attack sound, and the COMPACT is equipped with an MTB (multi-tone booster) that lets you create everything from sweet and mellow tones to a distinctively sharp sound.

    Furthermore, every sound allows vibrato/chorus and the rotary speaker simulation to be quickly switched on/off at a touch. Vintage effects are also included, letting you immerse yourself in the rich history of organ performance.

    HIGH-QUALITY E.PIANO PART PAYS ATTENTION TO EVERY DETAIL

    Three electric piano sound engines are provided: TINE gives you the sounds produced by striking a metal bar, REED models the vintage electric pianos that strike a vibrating reed, and FM creates the iconic electric piano sounds of the 80's. You'll enjoy high-quality e-piano sounds with realistically simulated amp and cabinet modeling, and carefully sampled overtones.

    RICH PIANO PART DELIVERED BY HIGH-CAPACITY SAMPLES

    Three types of piano are provided: GRAND with its peerless resonance, UPRIGHT which provides the uniquely sophisticated depth of an upright piano, and E.GRAND which gives you an electric grand that's ideal for pop music. GRAND and UPRIGHT lavishly feature non-looped stereo samples for every key, bringing you richly expressive piano sounds that are both delicate and powerful.

    KEY/LAYER PART WITH RICH VARIETY

    This part contains a variety of practical sounds that will be immediately useful in your band or ensemble, organized into the six categories of KEY, BRASS, STRINGS, LEAD, SYNTH, and OTHER. These will perfectly cover the keys part of any musical style.

    INTUITIVE AND POWERFUL EFFECTS OPTIMIZED FOR LIVE USE

    Designed for the same ease-of-use as the sound parts, the effects section is optimized for live performance. Six powerful EFFECT types (CHORUS, PHASER, FLANGER, COMP, DRIVE, WAH), four types of DELAY, five types of REVERB, and EQ; each provide dedicated knobs and switches to allow versatile and rapid control of your sound.

    FROM EQ TO EG, TOUCH SENSORS ALLOW VERSATILE CONTROL

    The greatest distinction of the VOX Continental's interface is its revolutionary LED-equipped touch bars that shift function according to the situation.

    ・When you're playing an ORGAN part, they function as touch drawbars that you can control directly with your fingertips.

    ・When you're playing a KEY/LAYER part, they function as sliders that control parameters such as EG and filter.

    ・When the EQ is on, they function as a nine-band graphic master EQ.

    These are electrostatic touch sensors that smoothly respond to a light touch of your fingertips; they provide the graphical operability of drawbars, together with the programmability that users expect from today's technology. Their concave shape facilitates smooth movement of your fingertips, and also allows you to sense intuitively how far the control has been raised or lowered, without requiring you to glance at the controller during performance. These are not the commonly-seen physical sliders, nor are they buttons; rather, these touch sensors are precisely matched to the player's senses, delivering a revolutionary ease of use.

    As an additional controller, a bend lever is also provided. You can use this to freely control the speed of the rotary speaker simulation, tremolo, or pitch bend.
