Scarbee Funk Guitarist is a new Kontakt-based software instrument that puts a highly expressive and versatile virtual funk guitar at the hands of producers. For use in the Kontakt 4 sampler and in the free Kontakt Player, it provides an unlimited range of authentic, sophisticated rhythm guitar lines for funk, soul, hip hop, house, pop and other contemporary styles.

At the heart of Scarbee Funk Guitarist is an extremely flexible and intuitive phrase concept that allows users to seamlessly combine different guitar grooves and chord types via the MIDI keyboard, allowing for natural harmonic progressions and completely authentic funk phrasings. The integrated groove sequencer maintains a constant and natural rhythmic flow, while articulations like up and down strokes, mutes, hammer-ons and slides are triggered automatically by the intelligent script-based engine of the instrument.

Scarbee Funk Guitarist was produced by renowned sampling expert Thomas Scarbee together with accomplished studio guitarist Soren Reiff and leading Kontakt scripting specialist Nils Liberg. The instrument is based on over 3,000 chords that were painstakingly recorded in various voicings, multiple velocities and with all relevant articulations, resulting in over 130,000 individual chord samples. For the sampling process, a specially modified guitar with hand-selected highest-quality components was used, equipped with a special pickup configuration that allowed multiple pickup positions to be captured simultaneously.

A multitude of advanced customization features in Scarbee Funk Guitarist allows producers to create intricate individual guitar grooves for any musical context. Making full use of the powerful GUI functions in Kontakt 4, the instrument includes a full-featured graphical groove editor, an integrated play-along bass, a versatile chord finder, automatic chord recognition via MIDI and more. Scarbee Funk Guitarist also includes a comprehensive multi-effects section with a chain of eight effects specifically suited for rhythm guitar, complete with a wide selection of presets that recreate a multitude of funk guitar tones from different musical eras.
