At the heart of the SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is the Scarbee Black Bass, created by veteran bassist and producer Thomas Hansen Skarbye and inspired by the sound of Bernard Edwards (Chic). The SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is a great addition to our Powered-by KONTAKT series of instruments, ready to use with the free KONTAKT PLAYER or KONTAKT.
To give you ready-made sounds for your productions, SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED offers a choice between four different amp settings.
Fat is a rounded and tight bass specially designed for rock and pop oriented music.
Heavy is a punchy and hard bass specially designed for heavy rock oriented music.
Crunchy is a powerful and slightly distorted bass specially designed for rock-oriented music.
Pop is a thick and crunchy bass specially made for R&B and pop oriented music.
The SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED was recorded with flatwound strings to produce the warm, creamy sound of 1970s bass lines. Full bass strings have been sampled to reproduce the timbre changes that occur when switching between low and high frets – giving you a rich, natural sound with all the overtones.
SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is much more than just a collection of samples. It includes an extensive array of playing techniques including sustains, mutes, harmonics, hammering, cuts, slides and more. And with some sophisticated scenarios, the SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED comes to life with features such as dynamic neck mapping, chord recognition, random triggering of different samples, random pickup strike insertion and realistic vibrato, all to brighten up your groove.
Thomas Hansen Skarbye is a high level bass player who has worked with artists such as Nile Rodgers (Chic) and Alicia Keys. His brand of sound design has become synonymous with quality, and his sampled instruments have become the first choice of many top producers and musicians around the world.
