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.

 

Real valve sound powered by Nutube, the new vacuum tube

Adding stunning presence and the warmth of vacuum tubes, KORG's Nutube is a new type of vacuum tube that powers valve drive sound, smooth distortion, and a dense and fat sound that cannot be obtained by modeling. The nuances of drive can be intuitively controlled by a dedicated switch and knob even while you perform. The light emanated by the Nutube circuit adds a visual element to its audible effect.

 

*What is Nutube?

Nutube is a new type of vacuum tube that was developed by KORG Inc. and Noritake Itron Corporation utilizing vacuum fluorescent display technology. Like a conventional vacuum tube, Nutube has an anode grid filament structure, and operates as a complete triode vacuum tube. Like a conventional vacuum tube, it generates the warm overtones and response that are distinctive of vacuum tubes.

 

Semi-weighted waterfall keyboard is optimized for performing a variety of sounds

A newly designed light-touch waterfall keyboard is featured. Performance techniques distinctive of the organ, such as glissandi and trills, can be reproduced perfectly. Semi-weighted design means that playing feel is also excellent for piano or electric piano performance. Even when you're playing complex chords or difficult phrases, sensitive velocity control is assured.

 

Freely customize the playing feel of the keyboard

The dynamics knob lets you control the way in which your playing dynamics (velocity) affect changes in volume and sound. Turning the knob toward the left gives you a wide range of expression from pianissimo to fortissimo, allowing the richly emotional performance that you need for a solo or for singer-instrumentalist playing. Turning the knob toward the right will make the loudness of the sound consistent regardless of your keyboard playing dynamics, ensuring that your keyboard backing will not be buried in the sound of your band or ensemble.

 

Use scene memories to instantly switch settings

Favorite sounds or frequently-used variations can be registered as one of 16 scenes (4 scenes x 4 banks) and recalled instantly while you perform. You can also use a USB flash drive to save and load up to 100 sets of 16 scenes. For the keyboard player who works with multiple bands, this feature allows sets of scene memories to be managed without confusion for easy access to the sounds you need.

 

A true stage keyboard that shines in live performance

The design and features of the VOX Continental are optimized for live performance. The body sports the distinctive scarlet color that's traditional for VOX organs, and is made of sturdy sheet metal and lightweight aluminum to ensure durability, and its slim and compact design guarantees excellent portability. The OUTPUT jacks provide XLR balanced output to preserve the quality of the audio output without having to use D.I. The rear panel VOX logo is fully illuminated; along with the bulldog badge, this makes a bold on-stage assertion of this instrument's English heritage.

 

Comes as a set with a dedicated pedal and keyboard stand

A volume/expression pedal (V861) and dedicated keyboard stand (ST-Continental) are included as standard. The V861 features a compact and sturdy black-anodized aluminum chassis for a sophisticated look; it provides two sets of INPUT/OUTPUT jack and one EXPRESSION jack that let you use it to control volume or wah.

The ST-Continental's design brings to mind the VOX organ player of the past, and provides a side lever that allows the angle to be easily adjusted. Since this stand allows the VOX Continental to be completely secured with screws, it allows bold tilt settings, such as angling the panel and keyboard toward your audience for greater performance impact. It's a dedicated stand for a new generation of keyboard heroes to perform live.

I love that it’s a family run business and Steve was incredibly knowledgable and helpful when it came to selecting the piano I wanted. It was great having the chance to test out the various options in the shop till I was happy. Steve took the time to explain the history, inner workings and differences based on what I was looking for.

I didn’t have to wait long for delivery either.
The guys that delivered and installed the piano were great...on time, quick, cleared up after and very polite.

I’m absolutely thrilled with the piano, so much so that I’m struggling to stay away from it 😊

Thanks again Steve and team for the great service from my initial visit in the shop to the first time sitting down to play.

My experience at Keysound was really good. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the store just before Leicester went into its local lockdown and Steve really helped teach me about learning how to play the piano and also about the piano itself and the different types. I ended up buying one but I later realised that I wouldn't be able to take it to university with me and so Steve was really helpful over the phone in helping me with this problem and really helped me choose another one.
