Misfit Banjo 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 Misfit Banjo is a delightful (+3.600 sample) accurate representation of a real Banjo. We recorded it with two microphone positions (close and spaced/room), so you can dial in the right perspective. We also recorded true gelato and glissandi transitions. In addition we added intelligent strum-detection, so if you play more then one note additional strumming effects and x-noises will be added. It just works!

The Banjo, one of the signatures of the true american folk- when played by a pro in the best studios of the world sounds great, but when played by just a guy like you or me, sitting in front of his trailer and chewing tobacco on a sunny day, sounds unique: It has its own soul. Our idea was to approach the roots of modern music, a raw and gritty touch with an aroma of the authentic folk.

Rambo's Banjo

The Misfit Banjo is raw, real and full of life. Whether you want fluid transitions with true gelato & glissandi – or perhaps a more muted or choked sound. Whether you want intelligent strum detection or a bunch of additional x-noise artifacts – its all there baby. The Misfit Banjo just does what it does – its honest, non-pretentious and highly realistic sounding. If you think its too perfect – just use our detuned button. This Banjo is your deliverance!

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.


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!
