Highly versatile, perfectly sampled slapped and finger-played bass from Scarbee. Features the sounds of a late 70s Jazz Bass.
SCARBEE JAY-BASS is the go-to source for slap and finger bass. This addition to the "powered by KONTAKT" range of instruments is an expertly played and sampled late 70s Jazz bass.
Created by Thomas Skarbye. Based on the Scarbee Red Bass, it makes extensive use of the advanced scripting features introduced with the SCARBEE PRE-BASS. With three pick-up positions and a multitude of playing techniques, SCARBEE JAY-BASS has it all when it comes to slapped and fingered bass sounds.
True-to-life sound is critical for realistic slapped and fingered bass; that’s why SCARBEE JAY-BASS is not just a collection of static sound samples. Utilizing recordings of the full strings of a late 70s Jazz bass, this instrument reproduces the timbre changes that occur when you move between low and high frets on the string of a real bass. In this way JAY-BASS delivers contrary “sweet spots” for a rich and vivid sound that’s highly natural.
JAY-BASS is so realistic that you can even slide between chords. Recorded through a DI the SCARBEE JAY-BASS is highly adaptable and fits easily in to the mix, with or without additional processing.
The GUI provides more than just a visual aid for string selection, but information on articulations and hand positions that make this a superb tool for learning how to play bass. Under the hood SCARBEE JAY-BASS utilizes sophisticated scripting that automatically takes care of string selection, finger alteration, chord recognition, vibrato, release and much more. Furthermore, the script enables you to configure all settings including EQ, load and store FX presets, and access documentation covering every aspect of the instrument directly through the instrument performance view.
The Scarbee and Native Instruments partnership sees the expert sample house release instrument libraries under the “powered by KONTAKT” banner, for use with the industry-leading sampler KONTAKT or the free KONTAKT PLAYER. With SCARBEE’s renowned precision and level of detail applied to the multi award-winning KONTAKT platform, producers can expect a line of premium instruments across the musical spectrum.
Thomas Hansen Skarbye is a highly regarded bassist who has worked with artists such as Nile Rogers (Chic) and Alicia Keys.
