NI – Scarbee Funk Guitar

This is another example of how powerful the music software is becoming. Now you can have a professional rhythm guitarist, using the best guitar, recorded through vintage gear, playing exactly what you want. Incredible.

We at the Fuzzy Lounge are huge fans of the Scarbee Instruments. In fact, they are so good that they are featured in 90% of the Sandman Theory Tracks!
A little about Thomas Skarbye:

“Armed with a vision and the newest technology to help him realize his dream, Thomas Skarbye started out on a path to create some of the most realistic sounding sample libraries in the world and founded SCARBEE June 1, 2000 together with his wife Anne Skarbye.

The first offerings were the award winning bass libraries Scarbee J-Slap and Scarbee J-Fingered – at an early age Skarbye was forced to stop playing due to a chronic wrist condition which made playing the fretted instrument extremely painful and these bass libraries was a way to be able to “play” again without compromising on any possible articulation.” –

In the last few years Scarbee teamed up with Native Instruments to be their sample instrument masterminds. The team is fueled by the sampling techniques and instruments ideas of Thomas Skarbye and the coding wizardry of Nils Liberg. Lets see what they come up with next!

    “In the last few years he was hired by Native Instruments”
    I’m not sure if “hired” is the right word. It’s probably better viewed as a cooperation between two companies.

    Good call Nils! You are the scripting coding genius behind the Scarbee Instruments aren’t you!? I will make an edit to the post. Great work guys!
