THE MAKING OF SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST

Ein Blick hinter die Kulissen: das SCARBEE-Team

THOMAS SKARBYE - SAMPLING SPECIALIST

Der Däne Thomas Hansen Skarbye, Inhaber der Firma Scarbee, ist ein wahrer Meister auf dem Gebiet der super-realistischen Reproduktion realer Instrumente. Die Detailversessenheit des Dänen ist legendär - genau deswegen überzeugen seine Produkte selbst kritischste Ohren.

Über seine Arbeit an SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST:
"This project was like nothing else we've ever made - it's like 10 times everything else. I mean, we actually built a sequencer - with artificial intelligence - inside Kontakt!! How crazy is that? We put so many smart rules into SFG to make it sound perfect. Occasionally I had to take a few hours off and go for a walk in the country - it was on these "relaxing" walks that I often came up with ideas for new features or solutions."

SOREN REIFF - GITARRIST

Soren Reiff ist nicht nur Musikdirektor für einen dänischen TV-Sender und erfolgreicher Solokünstler, sondern auch ein viel beschäftigter Session-Musiker. Er hat bereits mit internationalen Top-Stars wie David Sanborn, Chaka Khan, Mark King, Robert Palmer, Tower Of Power, Randy Crawford oder Paul Young zusammengearbeitet.

Über seine Arbeit an SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST:
"I've always felt I was in good shape and had fine guitar chops, but these recordings were so hard physically - I've never done anything like it. At times I had to get massages several times a week so my back, shoulders, hands and arms didn't get damaged. Sometimes we even forgot to eat because we were all so engaged in the process! But we also laughed a lot."


NILS LIBERG - SCRIPTING

Der Script-Spezialist Nils Liberg entwickelte mit Thomas Skarbye schon diverse andere Sample-Instrumente für NATIVE INSTRUMENTS wie ALICIA'S KEYS oder SCARBEE MM BASS. Die Komplexität von SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST stellte den Programmierer vor die bisher größten Herausforderungen seiner Karriere.

Über seine Arbeit an SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST:
"Without any hesitation, I can say that this is the biggest and most complex project I have been involved in. The spreadsheets that Thomas and Sören used to describe chords and sample data contained tens of thousands of manual entries. The user-interface was a challenge and required a lot of new elements that are not natively supported by Kontakt - a mini-sequencer, tab controls, listboxes, and modal dialog boxes."
