Clavinet D6 Lives on with Scarbee's D6-C Sample Library

March 29, 2004

Scarbee's D6-C is a reproduction of the classic Hohner Clavinet D6, recreating not only the funkyl sound but also the feel of the "real" instrument and continuing the new Vintage Keyboard product line that was started with the release of the R.S.P. '73 (Rhodes Stage Piano MK1 '73) and W.E.P. (Wurlitzer 200A)

Scarbee was originally set to sample the later "road model" E7 because of it's better shielding and better condition, but after thorough testing against three different D6's, the company deemed the sound of the D6 to be much better. The sound of the E7 lacked the aggressive and funk sound of the D6 - both due to a slightly different preamp - but also because of the aluminium case and general design, according to the company.

Each of the 60 keys of the Clavinet D6 have been sampled in 16 different sustained velocities - both the sustained and the release sound for a total of 1920 samples.

All four basic sounds: Upper pickup, Lower Pickup, Both pickups and Both pickups phase revert have been sampled, plus a special muted version of "Both Pickups" for a total of 9600 samples.

Scarbee D6-C will ship in a 24 bit Giga 3.0 version and in a multi format version containing a 24-bit native Halion, EXS24 mk II, Kontakt and Kompakt versions.

Scarbee D6-C will be available in May/June 2004 for MSRP $199.00
