Imagine the perfect funk guitarist: groove, precision and no solos – please welcome SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST. This innovative instrument gives you instant playability and total control, with the genuine flavor of the funk.
Even if you’ve never held a guitar in your hands, SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST lets you channel the funk immediately. Using nothing but two fingers and a MIDI keyboard, you can jam and improvise for hours on end.
Your right hand controls the groove – each groove preset consists of three basic riffs and multiple variations. Your left hand selects chords and velocity, with each key mapped to a specific chord. In each chord map, just hit the white keys, moving upwards from C to play authentic chord progressions, many based on classic funk tracks – this instrument pays its dues to a great funk tradition.
For building your own chord maps, the chord finder is a compendium of funk guitar chords and voicings. Just select the chord you want – regardless of whether you can play it or not.
And if you’re comfortable with the keys, use automatic chord detection to build your own chord maps. Whatever chord you play is instantly added to a chord list, including voicing, top notes and alterations. Play a series of chords to create a mapping in seconds – perfect when you’re working with existing pieces.
Every aspect of SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST is editable. The groove editor lets you manipulate the individual elements of a groove, so you can remodel existing grooves or create your own phrases out of different articulations.
Over a year in the making, SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST is a breakthrough in guitar sampling. The construction process was incredibly detailed – 3411 chords, recorded in multiple velocities, up to 11 articulations, different playing positions and pickup settings, resulting in up to 152 samples per chord.
