Pianos and Keys
KOMPLETE 8 comes with a good sized sampling of virtual keyboard instruments. These instruments are sampled from the various artists and equipment using very demanding conditions and techniques to exacting standards. The following is included with KOMPLETE 8.
• VINTAGE ORGANS brings the classic organ sounds of the past to your productions and performances today. Five legendary vintage organs have been sampled. These preserve their authentic character in perfect detail. These include the sounds of the Hammond B-3, C-3 and M-3 models, the Vox Continental II and the Farfisa Compact, recorded in high quality from the original instruments exclusively by Native Instruments.
• SCARBEE CLAVINET/PIANET contains two funky setups. The first is a Hohner Clavinet. This 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 second is a Hohner Model N Pianet - 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 I.
• SCARBEE MARK I is the legendary electric piano of the 1970s has been sampled its purest analog sound. It ranges from warm and mellow to bright and 'barking' and can also produce chiming bell-like tones. It is the perfect choice for jazz, funk, fusion and R&B.
• SCARBEE A-200 another classic electric piano that ranges from soft and sweet to a more biting, overdriven sound when played harder. The distinctive sound of the original A-200 was much loved by pop and rock bands in the 1960s and 70s and has recently found favor with a whole new wave of pop, indie and jazz and electronic artists.
