Scarbee releases Black Bass for Kontakt 2

20th August 2007

Scarbee has announced the release of Black Bass, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt 2.2. Black Bass is produced and recorded by Scarbee director Thomas Hansen Skarbye himself and developed together with Kontakt script wizard Nils Liberg to create an innovative and playable instrument for musicians, composers, and producers looking for a unique bass sound.

Scarbee Black Bass for Kontakt 2PR Quote: "I wanted to record my own favourite four string bass - THE SOUND that I always come back to." says Thomas and continues: "I use flatwound strings to get that warm, creamy sound of the 70's disco and funk bass lines and because my bass has maple (hard wood) fretboard - it sounds great when slappin’ too!"


Articulations and playing techniques:

This initial release features fingered playing style and contains more than 4000 samples. Two expansion sets for Black Bass are scheduled for release: Black Bass - Fingerpick EXP - a special style where you use your index finger as a pick and Black Bass - Slap EXP - thumb and plucked style.

Scarbee Black Bass Sample Library for Kontakt 2.2 costs $99.
