SCARBEE RICKENBACKER BASS首次在软件中清楚准确地录制RICKENBACKER®4003的声音。 RICKENBACKER® BASS是Rickenbacker®官方授权的首款软件乐器，它提供丰富的低音、清晰的中音，曾推动摇滚乐和流行乐的历史发展。
为了制作SCARBEERICKENBACKER®BASS，带有不锈钢Rotosound琴弦的Rickenbacker®4003直接录制在Pro Tools中，使用优质Mogami连接线和Metric Halo LIO-8前置放大器，确保这款传奇般的贝斯的每一个细节都音质质朴。
SCARBEE贝斯首次提供的匹克音色，提供了自60年代以来在无数摇滚和流行乐曲中听到的清脆音调。 摒弃Rickenbacker®的集成弹性消音系统，创建了手掌制音，通过把手放置在琴桥上，确保真正表演的真实性。 开放匹克音色在拾音器之间演奏，两者都使用独特的Rick-O-Sound立体声输出来录制经典的Rickenbacker®音色。
SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS captures the unmistakable sound of a Rickenbacker® 4003 for the first time in software. Delivering meaty, low end thunder and the crisp, defined midrange that has shaped rock and pop history, RICKENBACKER® BASS is the first software instrument to be officially approved byRickenbacker®.
Painstakingly sampled by Thomas Skarbye, ideal for distortion, and the first SCARBEE bass to be played with a pick, RICKENBACKER® BASS delivers all the character and versatility of the original in an ultra-flexible, completely authentic KONTAKT instrument.
To create SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS, a Rickenbacker® 4003 with stainless steel Rotosound strings was recorded direct into Pro Tools with premium Mogami cables and a Metric Halo LIO-8 preamp, assuring every nuance of this legendary bass came through in pristine quality.
Picked articulations available for the first time in a SCARBEE bass provide the crisp tone heard on countless rock and pop records since the 60s. Avoiding Rickenbacker®’s integrated foam muting system, palm-muted articulations were created with the pick hand positioned over the bridge, ensuring the realism of a true performance. Open picked articulations were played between the pickups, and both were recorded using the unique Rick-O-Sound stereo output for classic Rickenbacker® tone.
HEART OF TONE
A unique KONTAKT effect chain adds the final component to this authorized Rickenbacker® instrument with the newly implemented Jump Amp fromGUITAR RIG for extreme tweakability, and tape saturator, equalizer and compressor from theSOLID MIX SERIES for pro studio effects.
A BASS ODYSSEY
SCARBEE RICKENBACKER® BASS is based on the Rickenbacker® 4003, released in 1980 as the successor to the 4001 model that had been in consistent use since 1960. Already famous as a ‘mix sitter’ against a wall of guitars, the 4003 greatly improved the bass response of the 4001’s neck pickup to give it the balanced tonal response it has become famous for. The crisp, thunderous tone of these basses has been immortalized on some of the most successful rock and pop albums in history, and now it’s at your fingertips.
