Scarbee announces Blue Bass for Kontakt 2 and Kontakt 3

17th January 2008

Scarbee has announced Blue Bass, a sample library made for Native Instruments' Kontakt (2 and 3). Scarbee Blue Bass has been built to take advantage of the advanced scripting technology originally developed for the Black Bass.

Blue Bass"Blue Bass is really fun to play in real life - it has expression like no other bass I own, going from mellow, deep groove to aggressive growling and barking. The bass sound recorded is probably the most used on albums world wide, suitable for any musical style from country, rock, pop, latin, jazz, reggae to funk," says bass player and producer Thomas Hansen Skarbye.

Blue Bass was designed to be very easy to play live. Almost all articulations can be triggered without any keyswitches. e.g. legato playing triggers hammer-on and pull-off, legato playing with sustain pedal pressed triggers slides, fast legato playing triggers grace notes.


Articulations and playing techniques:

This initial release features fingered playing style and contains more than 4 000 samples. Expansion sets for Blue Bass are scheduled for release in 2008: Blue Bass - Slap EXP - thumb and plucked style.

Scarbee Blue Bass Sample Library for Kontakt 2 and Kontakt 3 will be priced $99 and will be shipping spring of 2008.
