    In spring 2017 I was contacted by Jamie Crist - who goes under the name SEA on various audio related forums. He had done some very creative sounds using a complex Midi modulation setup in his sequencer and Kontakt...

    The Frank Montis sound

    When Frank Montis uploaded this video to Youtube in December 2016 we started to receive so many requests for this sound. Read blog.

    MIDI CC Modulation feast!

    MATRIX - CEP-88sIf you are using the Scarbee Classic EP-88s for live playing, you may want to be able to do some smaller adjustments using ex. the Modulation Wheel to control the intensity of the Vibrato. Or if you want to create some more advanced, artistic sounds you can now select several FX parameters to be controlled by 1-3 controllers.
    Up to 6 different parameters can be mapped to each of the 3 controllers. Be aware that some of the parameters – especially the ones that sets Levels - can introduce small clicks. The solution is to limit the max/min range of these – or simply not to use them if you find it too anoying.
    Min - Max: Alters the scaling of the assignment so that the automation values are mapped to a limited range of the assigned parameter. The reduced range can then be automated with finer resolution. NOTE: You can use a higher number on Min than on Max (ex. 100 – 25) – this will reverse the direction of the FX parameter so instead of value going up – it will go down.

    Pre-FX Delay

    MATRIX - CEP-88s - DelayThe Delay now have an option to be set th PRE FX so that the delayed signal now can be processed with example Reverb for some very nice patches.

    Can you still load your old User Snapshot Presets?

    Yes - but you need to convert the Snapshots to work correct with the new version.

    maschineWe spend a lot of time and effort to make this instrument fully compatible with Native Instruments' new Native Kontrol Standard (NKS).

    The NKS format allows SCARBEE CLASSIC EP-88S to be integrated with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards.

    All of our 76 factory Snapshots are tagged and categorised - available while browsing in Maschine or Komplete Kontrol.

    Komplete KontrolWe have made custom control knob mappings for SCARBEE CLASSIC EP-88S entire factory Snapshot library. With Maschine and S-Series keyboards, each patch loads a custom performance page with all parameters immediately available.

    Tweak all the settings, adjust the effects - no controller setup required.
