New employees join SCARBEE
November 6, 2014
I’m happy to wellcome our two new emplyees at SCARBEE: Steffen Juncker Soerensen (top) and Jimmy Ostbygaard (bottom). They will assist me in recording, editing, instrument set-up, and web shop management (when we launch new product in 2015…).
I have known Steffen for many years where he has helped me with guitars, basses and keyboard restoration and modifications. Jimmy and I have known each other since the funky 80’s.
RICKENBACKER® BASS - Nomination!
Jan 15, 2013
We are proud to tell you that SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS has been nominated for Pro Tools Expert Product Of The Year 2013 – The People’s Choice Vote!
So please go and vote for it here:
Here is the description that follows the nomination:
“When it comes to sampling then it takes a lot to beat Thomas Scarbee, a top musician, friend of music industry legends and perfectionist sampler, what do you expect? His Native Instruments Scarbee Rickenbacker was no exception and took Russ back to his 80s post punk days.
GREAT SOUND ON SOUND REVIEW
June 17, 2013
Sound On Sound
has given SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS a fantastic review – with no “CONS”:
“Scarbee’s Rickenbacker Bass is expressive, a doddle to use, sounds highly realistic and sits effortlessly in a mix. It’s especially well suited to rock and pop styles, lending them authority and drive.“

New Exiting Future for Scarbee
April 4, 2013
The partnership between SCARBEE and Native Instruments have now changed from “exclusive” to “non-exclusive”. We will continue to co-develop successful products with NI in future, but in addition to that, SCARBEE can now release own products based on slightly different concepts.
One of the things we are likely to examine, is the idea of releasing series of sample libraries for Kontakt, where ex. the user can buy additional content for the main product. This will be very attractive for the user and also a natural and inspiring workflow for my team and I as we like to release more often – and also produce more specialized expansions.
We will also release standard Virtual Instruments that comes with Kontakt Player – it all depends on what suits the concepts best.
These products will be sold EXCLUSIVELY from our website: www.scarbee.com
Finally this change also means that SCARBEE can work with other companies – including hardware companies.
This is something we have wanted to look into for many years.
