HEADS UP: Scarbee is closing shop, <50% discounts

"The Final Sale - everything must go!

I have decided to close the SCARBEE web shop as it is no longer possible to run it without having a legal and web based marketing department. Everything just gets too complicated now (especially with the GDPR) and I'm a musician - not a lawyer or a marketing expert.

So its time to move on. SCARBEE has always been an "Art/Science" project - meaning that our passion was about creating illusions - how close close we get to reality? The business part was basically just a way to get funded.

Now me and my team will focus on being creative - instead of selling and doing paper work.

We hope you will help us clear the stock - we only have 3-4 left of some of the products - so don't wait too long...

Web Shop at www.scarbee.com closes on May 24, 2018".

Why did I think NI bought your company? Guess I'm just confused with the sheer amount of plugins, software companies, and sound companies.


Anyways, Good luck to you

I was wondering the same thing. Are their products not downloadable or too large to be practical for that?

Downloading works just fine.

I don't know what he means by "stock"... One thing is certain, though, his privately released CLASSIC EP-88S library will be off the market for a while, perhaps even for good.

He just has the one privately release library, no? The ep-88... which is just picked up last month is remarkable

He is selling Native Instruments licenses on his site. If he had to pre-buy those, perhaps this is the stock he is referring to. I'm only guessing though.

That was my first thought. How idiotic can people be. You don't have stock on hand with a digital download. You're simply downloading a copy and the file is always there. If there's are license involved a license generator is going to keep generating new ones.

Its cool you might get a deal on a plugin at a decent cost, but a Fire Sale on a download is really ridiculous. I guess there are enough people out there who think Tron is a physical object living inside their computer but really.

Maybe he's selling off the software and has promised to close the site?

Thanks for the heads up. I got the Classic EP-88s and expansion. I’ve been wanting it since I first heard the demos and figured it’s now or never. I have other EPs but this one is special. Sorry to see Scarbee close down shop.

What does the expansion actually do? I tried to understand the advertising, it seemed to me the expansion pack is primarily a collection of presets. Is this true?

As for "stock", his site now says that he has sold out most of the NI licenses.

Sorry to hear the sad news. I was recently playing with the Scarbee bass instruments that came with my NI instruments. Very realistic sounding and fun to play.

Cheers and best wishes!

Aside from the additional presets, it looks like there's a Mod Matrix plus syncable vibrato. I'm not exactly sure what else is in there, but it's a newly updated and separate .nki file. After getting the main instrument I went back and got the expansion because it came out to about $12 and looked interesting. Downloading now but I won't have a chance to check it out for a while.
