Scarbee has released their Vintage Keyboard FX (VKFX) VST plugin, a virtual rack packed with models of a range of different vintage analog effects processors.
Coded by software developers Thomas Serafini, Alfonso De Prisco - and graphic artist Stefan Kengen, the VKFX completes Scarbee's vision for vintage keyboard sample libraries which faithfully capture the sounds of the original masters - right down to the effects processing which was often a key element in defining a classic instrument's unique 'voice'.
Loaded into the VKFX are eight effects processors, including the essential electric piano preamp with stereo tremolo, a Compressor, Wah (Envelope Filter), Phase Shifter, Chorus Unit, Overdrive, Tape Delay, and a Valve Amp modelled on arguably the most popular device ever used to amplify electric keyboards (and the model includes the four spring reverb).
Scarbee Vintage Keyboard FX plugin is priced $299 and is now available in PC-VST format as a download, with a boxed version due out early 2005.
