Carefully sampled to fit perfectly in the mix. Four sounds for R&B, pop, rock and hard rock. 17 expressive articulations and techniques. The SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is based on the Scarbee Black Bass, created by veteran bassist and producer Thomas Hansen Skarbye and inspired by the sound of Bernard Edwards (Chic).

Fat is a round and dense bass specially designed for rock and pop oriented music.

SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED was recorded with flat-wound strings to get the warm, creamy bass lines of the 1970s. Full bass strings have been sampled to reproduce the timbre changes that occur when switching between low and high frets – giving you a rich, natural sound with all overtones.
SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED is much more than just a collection of samples. It includes an extensive range of playing techniques including sustans, mutes, harmonics, hammer strikes, snippets, slides, and more. And thanks to some challenging scenarios, the SCARBEE MM-BASS AMPED comes alive with features such as dynamic fretboard mapping, chord recognition, random sampling, random pickup beat insertion and realistic vibrato to brighten your groove.
Thomas Hansen Skarbye is a high-level bassist who has worked with artists such as Neil Rogers (Schick) and Alicia Keys. His brand of sound design has become synonymous with quality, and his sampled instruments have become the first choice of many leading producers and musicians around the world.
