Electric Pianos For Kontakt


Native Instruments has introduced Scarbee Vintage Keys. Here's what they have to say about it...
SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS is a new set of software instruments that provide highly expressive and authentic renditions of the most legendary electric pianos, for use in KONTAKT 4 and the free KONTAKT PLAYER. Based on the acclaimed Scarbee sample libraries that have become a staple in professional productions worldwide, SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS gives musicians and producers of all genres an efficient and affordable way to integrate the distinctive sounds of these classic keyboards into their music.
SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS features the most revered electric pianos of the 60s and 70s, dubbed MARK I, A-200, CLAVINET and PIANET, all based on carefully recorded 24-bit sample material. The instruments utilize up to 16 velocity layers per key as well as special "Horizontal Release Technology" to recreate the complex dynamic behavior of each instrument with maximum precision and authenticity. Each instrument also offers an integrated multi-effect section with up to 10 algorithms, including phaser, chorus, reverb and various other classic effect types, which add further depth and variety to the vintage electric piano tones.
All four instrument emulations contained in SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS are also available as separate download purchases, and can be used both in the full-featured KONTAKT 4 sampler as well as in the free KONTAKT PLAYER.
Pricing and Availability:
Available in DVD format in the NI Online Shop for $169 / 149 EUR. The individual instruments are available for download purchase for $79 / 69 EUR. More information and audio demos:
