Scarbee releases Red Bass

Scarbee has released Red Bass, a Kontakt sample library built on the samples of J-Slap’n Fingered, but reprogrammed to take advantage of Scarbee’s highly advanced scripting technology originally developed for Black Bass.

Red Bass has three pick-up settings: Bridge, Both and Neck, all recorded in both a fingered and slapped version – without the use of compression, tubes or EQ to ensure maximum flexibility in the sound production.

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

Scarbee Red Bass features

  • Real-time playable – with the exception of cross hammering and trills all of the articulations in the list given further below can be triggered without the need for any keyswitches.
  • A powerful user interface pushing the Kontakt user interface to its limits: a fretboard display gives an overview of the playing position and for each string what fret and articulation (displayed as a unique symbol) that are used – dynamically updated as you play.
  • All four strings sampled.
  • Each string is monophonic so new notes abort earlier notes, giving a perfectly realistic bass.
  • Automatic string selection – play and the script selects the most suitable string for you. Use keyswitches to limit the string choice or to move the active playing position (placement of left hand).
  • Automatic alternation of right hand index and middle finger samples (can also be controlled using keyswitches).
  • Convenient keyswitch mode – a keyswitch affects the following note or remains active as long as it’s pressed – making it easy to quickly return to the default mode of operation.
  • Slide mode – play a note legato while holding the sustain pedal pressed to trigger a slide. The velocity will determine the slide speed. Slides use real interval transitions sampled in three different speeds for realism.
  • Chord mode – makes it possible for notes to be automatically assigned to the right strings even if the notes of a chord don’t arrive exactly at the same time.
  • Control over release samples – random alternation between more or less tight (how quickly they are dampened) release samples where the proportion of each can be controlled by the user.
  • The sound of Mr. Scarbee’s own fingers.
  • Bass recorded DI to give you maximum flexibility in the sound production.
  • EQ and Effect Presets – direct in the instrument user interface.
  • Integrated documentation for all settings – direct in the instrument user interface.

Scarbee Red Bass is available as a download, or on DVD for $199 USD (ex. VAT).

Note: Currently it’s $133.33 USD, since Scarbee is having a 5 day Autumn Sale (Oct 15-Oct 19) with 33% off on all products.

Scarbee releases Black Bass Amped 1-4 for Kontakt 2

Scarbee has released Black Bass Amped 1-4, four reamped versions of the successful Black Bass library for Kontakt 2.

Each has its own distinct sound and is designed to fit certain musical styles. The amped editions provide an easy way to get the sound that you want out-of-the-box without the need for expensive amp simulators or tweak amp settings.

Other than the looks and the sound the amped versions work just like the original D.I. release (check for specs) – they are equipped with the same sophisticated script and programming.

The four versions:

  • Black Bass Amped 1, rock and pop oriented music productions. The amp and cabinet used for Amped 1 is a classic setup giving you a powerful and tight bass sound
  • Black Bass Amped 2, specially produced for heavy rock oriented music productions. The amp and cabinet used for Amped 2 is a classic setup giving you a powerful and hard bass sound
  • Black Bass Amped 3, specially produced for rock oriented music productions. The amp and cabinet used for Amped 3 is a classic setup giving you a powerful and mildly distorted bass sound
  • Black Bass Amped 4, specially produced for R&B and pop oriented music productions. The amp used for Amped 4 gives you a fat and crispy bass sound

Each Black Bass Amped product will cost $99.00, or $69.00 for a crossgrade from another Black Bass edition.

Scarbee Imperial Drums XL announced

Scarbee Imperial Drums XL

Scarbee Imperial Drums (SID) XL builds on the roots of the first Imperial Drums release, adding a wealth of amazing new features and a new ‘virtual home’ in the form of Steinberg’s cutting edge HALion Player virtual sampler.

Scarbee’s approach to drum sampling is to get as much detail as possible from a selection of drums, making it possible to create authentic sounding grooves, or any other kind of sound, thanks to the direct-to-disk concept, where the drums are recorded dry without any coloration other than what is naturally imparted by the room, mics and preamps.

Features

  • 51 different drums from renowned manufacturers; 3 bass drums, 7 Snare Drums, 3 sets of Toms, 3 Hi Hats, 4 Ride Cymbals, a full set of Cymbals (2 Chinas, 3 Splashes, 4 Crashes) and some cool additions
  • 13 different stick types; 3 beater types for bass drums
  • Multitrack to Multiple outputs version of each drum
  • Stereo mixdown versions of each drum in different fashions
  • Extremely long samples recorded in 88.2 KHz / 24 Bit resolution, released at 44.1 KHz / 24 Bit
  • Tons of Midi groove files already included and customized for SID-XL
  • ModWheel, KeySwitch and Midi CC technique switch and positional control
  • GM compatible mapping version of every drum
  • Roland™ V-Drums™ support
  • Disk Streaming Sample-Based Virtual Instrument included (Steinberg™ HALion Player™ 3.2)
  • Stand Alone, Rewire, VST, DXi and Audio Units supported
  • 256 Voices per instance, 16-way multi-timbral, 2 stereo outputs, 12 mono outputs
  • Sample/accurate timing and automation thanks to perfect VST integration
  • Total recall: all samples are saved with your song, including their respective settings
  • Programs can be deeply edited and saved by owners of the full fledged Steinberg™ HALion™ 3.2 (or better) sampler
  • Minimum Memory requirements as low as 512 MB for the stereo kits (1 GB for multi channel kits). For Example: one Multi channel Kit with Large drums requires just 180 MB of RAM in our tests with 0.20 secs preload (subject to disk drive performance)
  • Steinberg™ RAM SAVE™ technology allows for big savings in terms of RAM once the drum part has been laid down

Until december 5 (official release date) a special PREORDER price of only $249 is offered for Scarbee Imperial Drums XL Virtual Instrument (46 GB of quality drum samples). Normal price will be $299 and upgrade price for owners of Imperial Drums sample library will be $149.
