Painstakingly sampled by Thomas Skarbye, ideal for distortion, and the first SCARBEE bass to be played with a pick, RICKENBACKER® BASS delivers all the character and versatility of the original in an ultra-flexible, completely authentic KONTAKT instrument.
SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS runs in KONTAKT and the free KONTAKT 5 player.
Picked articulations available for the first time in a SCARBEE bass provide the crisp tone heard on countless rock and pop records since the 60s. Avoiding Rickenbacker®’s integrated foam muting system, palm-muted articulations were created with the pick hand positioned over the bridge, ensuring the realism of a true performance. Open picked articulations were played between the pickups, and both were recorded using the unique Rick-O-Sound stereo output for classic Rickenbacker® tone.
The Scarbee and Native Instruments partnership have released numerous instrument libraries for the industry-leading sampler KONTAKT and the free KONTAKT PLAYER. With SCARBEE’s renowned precision and level of detail, producers can expect a line of premium instruments across the musical spectrum.
