Perfectly sampled 70s disco and funk bass for the KONTAKT player.
SCARBEE MM-BASS is based on the highly-regarded Scarbee Black Bass created by accomplished bassist and producer Thomas Hansen Skarbye and inspired by the sound of Bernard Edwards (Chic). Bringing you the warm and creamy fingered bass sound of the 70s known from countless disco and funk recordings, SCARBEE MM-BASS is an outstanding addition to the Native Instruments' line of their "Powered-by KONTAKT" instruments.
The SCARBEE MM-BASS was recorded with flatwound strings to get that warm, creamy sound of 1970s disco and funk bass lines. The bass was recorded through a DI box to give maximum flexibility in the sound production. Furthermore, the full strings of the bass were sampled in order to reproduce the timbre changes that occur when you move between low and high frets - giving you rich, natural sound with all the overtones.
SCARBEE MM-BASS is much more than just a collection of samples. It features an extensive set of playing techniques including sustains, mutes, harmonics, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and more. And thanks to some sophisticated scripting, SCARBEE MM-BASS comes vividly to life with features such as a dynamic fretboard display, chord recognition, random alternation between varying release samples, random insertion of pickup hits and realistic vibrato - all to put the swagger into your groove.

Comments about Native Instruments Scarbee MM-Bass:
From day 1, I wasn't able to properly install the main platform which was Kontakt Player 4. Customer Service takes days to respond to my inquiry. They told me to just download Kontakt Player 5 from their website. So why did they include Kontakt 4 player in their packaging to being with???
After doing this, my PC had multiple problems getting it to run. You have to first install Kontakt Player 5 as a platform in order to run Scarbee-MM. It is not easy to install and I ran into alot of obstacles with it. I was very frustrating to do. Therefore I was not able to install Scarbee-MM DVD which was the 2nd dvd in this set.
I totally gave up on this product and called it a day. I do not recommend this software for your PC or Mac.
