SCARBEE CLAVINET是经过精心采样且可以永久播放的Hohner * Clavinet。自60年代末以来，这种极富特色的电子键盘已广泛用于众多经典的放克，灵魂乐，雷鬼，迪斯科和摇滚乐。它的“ twangy”性质使人想起电吉他，并且在以尖锐和打击乐的风格演奏时效果特别好。
PIANET是一台完美的Hohner * N型Pianet钢琴-是一台经典的机电钢琴，它使用了一系列金属芦苇，这些芦苇是由浸有粘合剂的泡沫垫拔起的，以产生声音。其结果是具有类似于颤音的音调，具有非常具有冲击力的包络，并且由于其“粘性锤子”而使动态响应变窄，介于A200的叮咬声和Mark 1的纯正铃音之间。
托马斯·斯卡比（Thomas Skarbye）并没有提供很多已经采样到“可接受”水平的乐器的“抓包”，而是专注于渲染到以前无法提供给采样用户的详细程度的单个乐器。通过认真研究和彻底的恢复/设置，他旨在捕捉乐器的“灵魂”，并尝试在声音，可演奏性和后期编辑之间取得平衡，从而在采样技术的最前沿实现完美匹配。 SCARBEE CLAVINET / PIANET源自Scarbee传奇的“ Funky Electric Piano”和“ Sticky Electric Piano”。
TWO IN ONE
The SCARBEE CLAVINET is a meticulously sampled and immanently playable Hohner* Clavinet. This highly distinctive electrophonic keyboard has been used extensively on numerous classic funk, soul, reggae, disco and rock tracks since the late 60s. Its ‘twangy’ nature is highly reminiscent of an electric guitar, and works particularly well when played in a sharp and percussive style.
The PIANET – a perfectly captured Hohner* Model N Pianet – is a classic electro-mechanical piano which used an array of metal reeds plucked by foam pads impregnated with adhesive to produce its sound. The result is a vibraphone-like tone with a very percussive envelope and a narrow dynamic response due to its “sticky hammers” – somewhere between the reedy bite of the A200 and the purer bell tone of the Mark 1.
Instead of offering a ‘grab bag’ of many instruments which have been sampled to an ‘acceptable’ level, Thomas Skarbye focuses on a single instrument rendered to a level of detail previously unavailable to sample users. Through careful study and thorough restoration/setup he aims to capture the “soul” of the instrument and try to balance sound, playability and post-editing for a perfect match at the forefront of sampling technology. The SCARBEE CLAVINET / PIANET was derived from Scarbee’s legendary “Funky Electric Piano” and “Sticky Electric Piano”.
For the CLAVINET, the team at Scarbee put together a staggering total of 12,300 samples – with every note recorded in each of the four standard pickup settings in both a standard version and a version with the mutebar engaged. The PIANET is smaller in size due to the simple mechanical design of the instrument which makes 5 release samples per key more than enough to obtain a perfect simulation of the original keyboard. Both models incorporate Scarbee’s Horizontal Release Technology for instruments that are as wonderfully realistic as they are playable.
Horizontal Release Technology is the process by which release samples are chosen from a wave pool depending on how long a key has been held – allowing a note played staccato to create a release tone different from a note which is sustained for a longer period.
The CLAVINET makes use of advanced triggering options which allow the inclusion of the occasional ‘off center’ string strike, a well-known characteristic of the original instrument. Sampled, mapped and programmed with great love and lavish attention to detail SCARBEE CLAVINET/PIANET presents both classic electro mechanical instruments in their ultimate form.
Also included is a versatile effects section that contains classic effects such as reverb, chorus, phaser, amp simulation, distortion auto-wah, pan, compression, delay and tremolo.
