Based on the acclaimed Scarbee sample libraries that have become a staple in professional productions worldwide, SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS gives musicians and producers of all genres an efficient and affordable way to integrate the distinctive sounds of these classic keyboards into their music.
SCARBEE VINTAGE KEYS features the most revered electric pianos of the 60s and 70s, dubbed MARK I, A-200, CLAVINET and PIANET, all based on carefully recorded 24-bit sample material.
