Native Instruments Announces Partnership with Scarbee
July 27 Native Instruments Announces Partnership with Scarbee
"Native Instruments today announced a close partnership with Scarbee, creator of highly renowned instrument libraries. In the future, sampling mastermind Thomas Hansen Skarbye will work directly with the team behind the industry-leading KONTAKT sampler on further software instruments that will offer the typical outstanding authenticity and playability of the Scarbee brand. Existing Scarbee products will be successively relaunched as self-contained instruments that will be maintained and distributed by Native Instruments."

I'm very happy to announce this new adventure for Scarbee. In the last year I've been looking for a way to be able to focus more on creating sounds for you and do less of the business part and with the new partnership with Native Instruments I have found the perfect solution. Not only will I now spend all my time on the stuff that I'm best at - I'm also receiving a lot of inspiration and valuable advice from all of my new colleages and friends at NI.
In the next 9 months all Scarbee products will be successively relaunched as self-contained instruments that will be maintained and distributed by Native Instruments.
However current and future Scarbee customers will be offered free updates of the sample libraries - including all new graphics and features! This is very important for us that you can safely buy Scarbee products during the transition.
As an example: You own Scarbee Blue Bass sample library. NI releases a new version as a Virtual Instrument with a new name, new features and graphics. We upload an updated .nki (program) + additional samples + .tga (wallpaper) - free for existing customers. As you already own Kontakt 3 the difference to the Virtual Instrument version will be ZERO. It will be exactly same version. You will NOT be offered the VI version - but no need since versions are identical.
FAQ Q:I would like to purchase Blue Bass but I don't own Kontakt or plan to buy it. Will I be eligible as a Scarbee customer for the free NI virtual instrument update so that I will be able to use this library?
A: No. You will only be offered an update of the sample library with same features and graphics as the NI virtual Instrument. So you still need your Kontakt 3.
