Native Instruments Announces Partnership With Scarbee


Native Instruments has announced a new partnership with instrument library maker Scarbee.

According to Native, Scarbee's sampling guru Thomas Hansen Skarbye will work directly with the Kontakt sampler team on new software instruments. Scarbee's existing products will also be relaunched as self-contained instruments that will be maintained and distributed by Native Instruments.

Skarbye plans to focus completely on the creation of further software instruments that will complement the existing Scarbee range.

Starting in September, existing Scarbee products will be relaunched in “Kontakt-Powered” format, turning them from sample libraries into self-contained instruments that provide playback and sound shaping functionality, without requiring the full-featured Kontakt sampler. In the process, the products will transfer into the NI product portfolio, and will become available for download purchase on the Native Instruments website.

“This collaboration is a big step forward both for me and for all Scarbee fans”, says Thomas Hansen Skarbye, founder of Scarbee. “Working directly with the NI team will allow me to capture and recreate more of these classic instruments, and to really get the maximum out of Kontakt for this purpose.”
