Berlin, October 26th, 2009 – Native Instruments today introduced SCARBEE PRE-BASS Amped, an additional version of the PRE-BASS software instrument that provides a meticulous, highly musical rendition of the iconic Fender Precision bass, recorded through a selection of distinctive amplifiers. PRE-BASS Amped is derived from the acclaimed Scarbee Blue Bass library, and offers production-ready bass tones for a variety of styles and genres.

SCARBEE PRE-BASS Amped expands on the already available PRE-BASS instrument by providing additional versions of the instrument recorded through four different amplifiers, offering distinctive characteristics perfectly suited for a variety of musical styles. Available in Fat, Heavy, Crunchy, and Pop versions, the bass tones in PRE-BASS Amped range from warm, round and tight to crispy, hard, and even slightly distorted types.

The “Amped” version offers the same level of detail as the previously released PRE-BASS instrument, with all four strings expertly sampled in nine velocities through each of the amplifiers, resulting in 12 GB of sample material. Powered by the industry-leading KONTAKT engine, PRE-BASS Amped is playable via the free KONTAKT PLAYER as well as the full KONTAKT sampler.

SCARBEE PRE-BASS Amped is available for purchase in the NI Online Shop for $119 / 99 €.

Additional information on both versions of SCARBEE PRE-BASS is available at
