Misfit 3-String Diddley Bow Kontakt Instrument VST-AU-AAX overview

Welcome to Misfit – an unusual collection of 15 deep-sampled instruments – following the musical tradition of flicks like Breaking Bad, Dexter, There Will Be Blood, The Master or them fine video games like Left4Dead etc.

Stripping the best equipment, the state of the art studios, the best and most expensive instruments, the best musicians, only the soul is left, and that is exactly what we wanted to explore – A human, urban and unique product.

The 3-Stringed Diddley Bow has been built from a metallic cookies box, a wooden stick and three guitar strings. Also, the neck of a bottle has been used for the slides in order to achieve a totally unique sound. We recorded it with two different microphone positions and used true gelato techniques to capture both fast and slow slide techniques, so you can get that twang going.

Our idea was to approach the roots of modern music, a raw and gritty touch with an aroma of the authentic old-style blues. We have included our 3.0 Chaos FX Engine, so out of the box, not only do you own a unique product, but also a product packed with effects that will give you unlimited possibilities to get the sound you’re looking for.

We hope you enjoy playing with this product as much as we enjoyed creating it for you (and ourselves!) : o )))

A unique experience

We promise you another type of experience with the Misfit 3 String Diddley Bow. We programmed it in two ways – the misfit way and the piano way. The Misfit way (see this video) is using a layout closer to the actual instrument and the Piano way is a more traditional way of playing the instrument. The 3 String Diddley Bow also contains two different microphone positions – one being DI (Direct Input) and the other a standard microphone. The instrument holds over 10.000 samples and a lot of them are devoted to our true gelato slides. So if you play in a normal legato fashion (overlapping keys) it will trigger a natural slide – either fast or slow – and it all just works.

Chaos FX 3.0

We also wanted to make life a little more fun for you, so we added our Chaos 3.0 FX system to the Misfit collection. First of all it means you have access to a variety of new FX types, including a highly sophisticated arpeggiator that allows you to arp in the craziest ways, dual stereo delay and two different types of custom convolution reverbs. We’ve included our Transform Convolution, which holds a large selection of sound design impulses and our more traditional Reverb, which contains a large selection of custom hall and church based impulses. We also added elements like EQ, Bitcrusher, Distortion and many other deliciousnesses.

Help Mei!

The Misfit sample collection is not exactly your standard sample experience. In fact its not even close. However to make it all easy as pie – we added a “HELPPP!” button on the front of all the user-inferfaces. If you click it the user interface will explain all the features and how they work. Its kinda neat – now that we are venturing into new and unexplored worlds of sounds. So yeah – there you have it! Whether you want a little true gelato action or molto expresso vibrato – you can easily find it all by clicking the help button or if you are oldschool refer to the boring documentation we’ve added. But who reads documents anymore! Hell sugga! Its impressive you even made it this far! We commend you!
