Arturia releases VOX Continental V organ instrument

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 05, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Arturia has announced the release of VOX Continental V, a vintage keyboard recreation, bringing back the classic sound of the famous VOX Continental 300.

Arturia Vox Continental 300

As a high-end software recreation of the Sixties-vintage VOX Continental 300 transistor-based combo organ, VOX Continental-V is the latest addition to Arturia’s acclaimed Analog Classics lineup where it sits alongside an authentic recreation of another archetypal Sixties staple, Wurlitzer-V (based on the classic ‘Wurly’ electric piano). Introduced in 1962, the VOX Continental — or ‘Connie’ as affectionately it became known — was originally designed to address the needs of touring musicians, but became musically much-loved in its own right. As such, it prominently featured on many hit records of the time, including The Animals’ classic ‘House Of The Rising Sun’ in 1964 and, a little later, ‘Light My Fire’ by The Doors. Onstage, The Beatles performed a memorably frenzied version of ‘Help!’ B-side ‘I’m Down’ during their August 1965 performance at New York’s Shea Stadium with John Lennon playing a VOX Continental using his elbows at times!

Despite being phased out of production in the early-Seventies, the VOX Continental has stood the test of time, too, playing a pivotal part in generating many of the distinctive keyboard sounds supporting later musical genres, including almost everything ever recorded by British Ska revivalists Madness, as well as New Wavers like Elvis Costello and The Attractions and American counterparts Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. However, VOX organs have become increasingly difficult to acquire due to the high prices that they can command, compounded by the limited supply of working units. Today, VOX Continental-V gives contemporary, computer-based musicians instant access to those same hit-making sounds of yesteryear, and much more besides — and all without breaking the bank!

VOX Continental V features

  • Physical Modeling of the VOX Continental 300.
  • Added models of the ultra rare Jennings J70.
  • Extended mode allows for more controls and more sound possibilities.
  • Includes classic stompbox-type modeled effects.
  • Modeled Guitar Tube Amp and Rotary Speaker outputs for vintage live sound.
  • Extensive MIDI mapping of pedals, effects and sound engine parameters.
  • Modeled amplifiers: Fender Deluxe Reverb Blackface, Fender Twin Reverb Blackface, Fender Bassman, Marshall Plexi, Leslie Speaker.
  • Modeled microphones: Shure SM57, Sennheiser MD 421, Neumann U 87.
  • Convolution reverb with custom classic spring reverbs.

The Vox Continental V is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX/Standalone) for $99 USD/99 EUR (download) / $129 USD/119 EUR (boxed).

Homegrown Sounds releases Spark Infekted + Easter Sale

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Spark Infekted, a sample library for Arturia’s Spark Creative Drum Machine, featuring 500+ Basses, Leads, Synths and Pads.

Homegrown Sounds Spark Infekted

The sounds are all designed with an Access Virus TI Synthesizer. The samples themselves are mostly musically useful as opposed to wild Sound Effects, and are categorized by Collection and type as Bass, Leads, Synths and Pads. By default the instruments have a short decay time although they are large samples and so can be played for a much longer time, and additionally moving the start position can change the character.

Inside Spark all instruments must be created within a project to be visible inside the instrument browser, and so the sounds are in the form of 53 Projects to house the instruments. Each Instrument has a parametric EQ inserted for ease of mixing when used in your own projects, and a template is also available which includes a standard drum kit for slots 1-9 followed by 2 Basses, 2 Leads, 2 Synths and 2 Pads taking up slots 9-16. This makes selecting instruments much easier as the categories are predefined and so the browser will automatically open in the correct category.

As well as Velocity based single instrument versions of each sound, there are also Dual versions which use Threshold Mode instead to use a different sample for High and Low Velocities. These pairs can be very useful and inspiring for creating more complex patterns from a single Pad.

The Template Project is available as a free download which includes 8 sounds from the collection to get an idea of what the instruments are like in usage. Extract to your Spark Library/User Folder to enable in Spark.

Spark Infekted is available for the introductory price of $40 USD (regular $65 USD).

Homegrown Sound has also announced an Easter Sale, offering 25% off all its products.

To celebrate Easter Homegrown Sounds is having a 25% off sale throughout April, use the code CART25% on the checkout page to apply the discount to everything added to the cart.
