Native Instruments has announced the release of Scarbee Jay-Bass, a new software instrument designed to provide a rendition of the Fender Jazz Bass.

Jay-Bass is based on the  Scarbee Red Bass library, and is the latest release in the partnership between Native Instruments and sampling expert Thomas Hansen Skarbye, complementing the available Pre-Bass and MM-Bass instruments.

Powered by the Kontakt engine and playable both via the full Kontakt 4 sampler and the free Kontakt Player, Scarbee Jay-Bass recreates the full sonic spectrum of the Jazz Bass in both slapped and fingered playing styles, delivering an arsenal of classic funky bass tones suitable for a wide range of music genres.

All four strings of the original instrument have been sampled in nine velocities, resulting in over 4,000 individual studio-grade samples. The sample material was recorded through a DI for maximum sonic flexibility, retaining the distinctive original character of the instrument, and using round-wound strings for a bright and punchy sound, according to the company.

Specific “Player Profiles” for various genres as well as EQ and effect controls allow musicians and producers to further customize the sound and behavior of Jay-Bass to fit the musical context.

Pricing & Availability
Scarbee Jay-Bass is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for $89 / €79.
