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.
