Homemade Misfits 

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

The 1 Stringed Diddley Bow (over 4,300 samples) was built from a wooden cigar box, a wooden stick, and one guitar string. The neck of a bottle was used for the slides to achieve a totally unique sound. 

We recorded the 1 Stringed Diddley Bow at both slow and fast legato slide speeds, and with true vibrato in the legato. We call it True Gelato, baby! 

Our idea was to approach the roots of modern music, a raw and gritty touch with an aroma of the authentic old-style blues.

Misfit 1 Stringed Diddley Bow

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!
