SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is based on Scarbee Black Bass, created by seasoned bassist and producer Thomas Hansen Skarbye and inspired by the sound of Bernard Edwards (Chic). 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 player.
To provide you with ready-made sounds for your pieces, SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED offers a choice between four different amp settings.
Fat – rounded and dense bass, specially created for rock and pop-oriented music.
Heavy is a sharp and hard bass specially created for heavy rock oriented music.
Crunchy is a powerful and slightly distorted bass specifically designed for rock-oriented music.
Pop is a thick and crispy bass specially created for R&B and pop-oriented music.
SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED was recorded with flat-wrapped strings to get the warm creamy sound of the 1970s bass lines. Full bass strings were sampled to reproduce the tone changes that happen when switching between low and high frets – giving you a rich, natural sound with all overtones.
SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is much more than just a collection of samples. It includes an extensive array of gaming techniques, including sustain, muffles, harmonics, hammering, snippets, slides, and more. And thanks to some complex scenarios, the SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED comes to life thanks to features such as dynamic fretboard display, chord recognition, randomly alternating triggering of various samples, random insertion of pickup beats and realistic vibrato – all this allows you to decorate your groove.
Thomas Hansen Skarbye is a high-level bass player who has worked with artists such as Neil Rogers (Chic) and Alicia Keyes. His sound design brand has become synonymous with quality, and his sampled instruments have become the first choice of many leading producers and musicians around the world.
