Misfit 3 Stringed Diddley Bow


Welcome to Misfit: an unusual collection of 18 deep-sampled instruments. 

After stripping the best equipment, the state-of-the-art studios, the most expensive instruments, and even the best musicians, only the soul is left. That is exactly what we wanted to explore: a human, urban, and unique product. 

The 3-Stringed Diddley Bow was built from a metallic cookie box, a wooden stick, and three guitar strings. The neck of a bottle was used for the slides 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 also included our 3.3 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.

A Unique Experience

We promise you a different 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 uses a layout closer to the actual instrument and the Piano way is more traditional. With our true gelato, playing in a normal legato fashion (overlapping keys) will trigger a natural slide, fast or slow.

Help Me!

The Misfit sample collection is not exactly your standard sample experience. To make it all easy as pie, we added a “HELPPP!” button on the front of all the user interfaces, which will explain all the features and how they work. Whether you want a little true gelato action or molto expresso vibrato, you can easily find it all by clicking the help button.

Chaos FX 3.0

We wanted to make life a little more fun for you, so we added our Chaos 3.0 FX system to the Misfit collection. First, it gives you access to a variety of new FX types, including a highly sophisticated arpeggiator, dual stereo delay, and types of custom convolution reverbs, and much more!
