Native Instruments' Scarbee Bass for Kontakt is, by far, one of the most realistic bass sample instruments ever created. The key to to creating and producing authentic sounding sampled bass tracks is to master the vast array of keyswitching options that determine the timbre, phrasing and overall Rickenbacker feel –and Scarbee is full of them!
So sit back and learn as Toby teaches you the secrets of the Scarbee Rickenbaker's amazing array of keyswitch gestures. Then, boot up Kontakt and deploy these techniques in yours track to create bass parts that'll indistinguishable from the real thing!

Very good instructor. This virtual instrument is new to me. But, I will look through my Native Instrument menus and look to see if I already own it. Then I'll start trying to practice the thing he teaches here.

Nice brief to the point walk through with demonstrations. Did a good job of showing how a realistic bass performance is possible with this instrument.

Love these quick tours. Be nice if there were many more of these that were segue into more detailed/advanced courses. This quick tour, in particular, was done very well
