News Scarbee MM-Bass

Native Instruments has announced the release of Scarbee MM-Bass, a new software instrument that provides a rendition of the distinctive Musicman Sterling electric bass.

MM-Bass is based on the Scarbee Black Bass library, and is the latest release in the partnership between Native Instruments and sampling expert Thomas Hansen Skarbye.

Powered by the Kontakt engine and playable both via the free Kontakt Player or the full Kontakt sampler, Scarbee MM-Bass supposedly “recreates the full sonic spectrum of the Sterling bass guitar, a modern classic whose characteristic tone has become a mainstay for funk, hip-hop, disco and similar groove-oriented genres, ” according to Native Instruments.

All four strings of the original instrument have been sampled in nine velocities, using flat-wound strings for a smooth vintage sound, resulting in 3 GB of sample material for the regular version and 12 GB for the “Amped” version. 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 MM-Bass to fit the musical context.

Pricing & Availability
Scarbee MM-Bass is available for purchase in the NI Online Shop at $89 / €79 for the standard version and $119 / €99 for the “Amped” version.
