Musikmesse 2014: Arturia today introduced VOX Continental-V, a new virtual instrument for Mac & Windows that recreates the sound of the classic Vox Continental 300.
The Vox Continental 300 transistor-based organ was used on some of the most famous songs of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond. It was prominently featured on many hit records of the time, including The Animals’ House Of The Rising Sun in 1964 and, a little later, Light My Fire by The Doors. It also featured prominently in The Beatle’s 1965 performance at New York’s Shea Stadium.
