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抯 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.
