Nice little four part course on Native Instruments Contact instrument 'Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass. by Toby Pitman.
A good short course on a good sample library. It only shows you what you need to know!
loved it!!!! nice and clear and explained with an enjoyable rhythm and voice sound
the course demonstrates All that plug in possibilities and how to get the best performance out of it on a very short time.
Good Tutorial great for beginner and intermediate on this VST. Was wanting more expert tip and tricks. But overall it's a really good tutorial.
Excellent course. The Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass is an absolutely fantastic tool for getting extremely realistic bass guitar sounds. And this tutorial shows just how easy it is to use.
Great course, short and straight to the point. I now understand this instrument inside and out. :)
Very in depth teaching, lots of meat and potatoes for learning this instrument in Kontakt. This tutorial will definitely help make it easier to dive into the Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass!
A nice no-fuss intro to what looks like a great bass emulator. Also some pretty decent sounding amp modelling here - I'm sure combined with Guitar Rig/Trash this thing would really pulverize.
This was a nice concise run through of how to do different sounds of a bass in the software.
Another good continuation of the Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass plug in tutorials. A really helpful feature I learned is how to implement the mute function, which simulates a muted bass tone.
What a great instrument. Very thorough and the tutorial was very informative. Thanks.
It's amazing just how real a sampled bass can sound!!! Get this tutorial!!!
Though the tutorial is short it packs a lot of info into how this expansion works. I thought the reviewer had a good grasp on the articulations of the bass and how to implement them in real time.
Good intro to get started using the Scarbee Bass. Short, but some nice gems in there. I'd like to see more real world use of putting it all together.
Very nice overview of this new product, I added it to my system and know I have a better working knowledge of how it works.
Wow, released just a few days after the product itself. Gives you a quick review of all the features. Helped me decide if I want to buy the Rickenbacker
