THE STAGE IS SET
At last, the legendary electric piano of the 1970s has been sampled to perfection in all of its analog brilliance. The classic sound provided by the SCARBEE MARK I ranges from warm and mellow to bright and ‘barking’ and can also produce chiming bell-like tones. While it is of course the perfect choice for jazz, funk, fusion and R&B, this KONTAKT instrument is also versatile enough for any production where authentic electric piano sound is essential.
Instead of offering a ‘grab bag’ of many instruments which have been sampled to an ‘acceptable’ level, Thomas Skarbye focuses on a single instrument rendered to a level of detail previously unavailable to sample users. Through careful study and thorough restoration/setup he aims to capture the “soul” of the instrument and try to balance sound, playability and post-editing for a perfect match at the forefront of sampling technology. The SCARBEE MARK I was derived from Scarbee’s legendary “Classic Electric Piano”.
