VOX Continental

In 1962 the original Vox Continental was released to play its part in pop history. Now re-imagined for 2018, Andy Jones says ‘come on baby’, but is his fire lit?

Contact Korg |

A round 10 miles away from where I was born, the town of Dartford was the somewhat unlikely location of Jennings Musical Instruments. They produced a wide-range of gear, such as flagship Vox amplifiers which included the famous AC30 (as used by, well, everyone really, including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones) and the Vox Continental organ, made famous on House of the Rising Sun by The Animals and many other tracks. The story of JMI and Vox gets a tad complicated after that, but all you need to know is that Korg bought the brand in 1992 and has been successfully producing Vox-branded gear ever since. Now the company has re-imagined the Continental, with both distinctive looks and that sound, and also packed it full of all sorts of modern goodness.

Over the past 20 years the internet has transformed the world of music-making. Sharing our works-in-progress or collaborating with people around the globe is but a click away. But what if you've never done this before? Assembling the correct tools to begin doing this easily is the bedrock of this month’s cover feature, where we highlight the essential techniques, tips and resources to start composing in the Cloud. Elsewhere this issue, we speak to video game composer Jesper Kyd, whose impressive credits include many key games in the popular Hitman and Assassin’s Creed franchises. Kicking off our review section, we bring you an exclusive look at Yamaha's new MODX 6 – and discover it to be a wonderfully featured instrument that innovates on many levels. We also have our usual plethora of tutorials covering all the major DAWs, an essential guide to mixing that deconstructs that most crucial of processes, helpful gear-guides and more. I hope you enjoy the issue.
