PIANET是一款完美捕捉的Hohner*Model N PIANET，是一款经典的电子机械钢琴，它使用一系列金属簧片，由浸渍了粘合剂的泡沫垫拨动来产生声音。其结果是产生了类似电颤琴的音调，具有非常有冲击力的信封，由于其“粘性锤子”-介于A200的芦苇叮咬声和Mark 1的更纯粹的铃声之间-产生了狭窄的动态响应。
托马斯斯卡拜没有提供一个包含许多已经取样到“可接受”水平的仪器的“抓取袋”，而是专注于将单个仪器渲染到以前样品用户无法获得的细节水平。通过仔细的研究和彻底的修复/设置，他的目标是捕捉乐器的“灵魂”，并试图平衡声音、可播放性和后期编辑，以实现采样技术前沿的完美匹配。SCARBEE单簧管/PIANET源自Scarbee传奇的“Funky Electric Piano”和“Sticky Electric Piano”。
TWO IN ONE
The SCARBEE CLAVINET is a meticulously sampled and immanently playable Hohner* Clavinet. This highly 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 PIANET – a perfectly captured Hohner* Model N Pianet – is 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 1.
Instead of offering a ‘grab bag’ of many instruments which have been sampled to an ‘acceptable’ level, Thomas Skarbye focuses on a single instrument rendered to a level of detail previously unavailable to sample users. Through careful study and thorough restoration/setup he aims to capture the “soul” of the instrument and try to balance sound, playability and post-editing for a perfect match at the forefront of sampling technology. The SCARBEE CLAVINET / PIANET was derived from Scarbee’s legendary “Funky Electric Piano” and “Sticky Electric Piano”.
For the CLAVINET, the team at Scarbee put together a staggering total of 12,300 samples – with every note recorded in each of the four standard pickup settings in both a standard version and a version with the mutebar engaged. The PIANET is smaller in size due to the simple mechanical design of the instrument which makes 5 release samples per key more than enough to obtain a perfect simulation of the original keyboard. Both models incorporate Scarbee’s Horizontal Release Technology for instruments that are as wonderfully realistic as they are playable.
Horizontal Release Technology is the process by which release samples are chosen from a wave pool depending on how long a key has been held – allowing a note played staccato to create a release tone different from a note which is sustained for a longer period.
The CLAVINET makes use of advanced triggering options which allow the inclusion of the occasional ‘off center’ string strike, a well-known characteristic of the original instrument. Sampled, mapped and programmed with great love and lavish attention to detail SCARBEE CLAVINET/PIANET presents both classic electro mechanical instruments in their ultimate form.
Also included is a versatile effects section that contains classic effects such as reverb, chorus, phaser, amp simulation, distortion auto-wah, pan, compression, delay and tremolo.
