Vox ToneLab Vintage Keys?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen this?



There's no mention of it on English sites, only German sites from what I've seen.


The Vox ToneLab is typically a guitar amp emulator in the vein of Line-6 Pod and SansAmp. But this is new, because this model appears to be designed for keyboards such as Rhodes and Wurlies... I can't read German, but i'm having a guess. Some other pages mention that it does a Leslie sim... I recall some people wishing that Korg would release the CX-3 leslie sim as an outboard/rack so that they can use it with their existing clones or other keyboards - so this might well be interesting.

I checked with our German Distributor, it's a cool idea that they're doing, not a new product from Korg. They've created new presets for the existing Tonelab product aimed at using it with vintage keyboards, so it's a new set of presets for the existing product.


They have a link on their page to download the presets, for use with our free Editor.




I actually haven't had time to try them yet, but I like the idea!
