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 Misfit Harmonicas are a deep-sampled collection of raw, gritty, and human harmonicas. We recorded different harmonicas from the same brand to cover the largest octave range possible, and went pretty damn deep on the articulations. Whether you want to bend up, bend down, go into vibrato or trills, or maybe just go olskool or chugga-chugga on staccato, its all there. We recorded the harmonicas with two microphones (dynamic and close), so you can dial in the right grit. Everything is raw and real, and there are over 8,700 samples of pure harmonious harmonica.
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.
We hope you enjoy playing with this product as much as we enjoyed creating it for you (and ourselves)!

A Unique Experience
The Misfit Harmonica is another dimension of sampling. We sought out to capture a nice set of Blues harmonicas in a raw and authentic way. It wasn’t about trying to do a maschine-perfect replication of the harmonica, but rather embrace the human imperfection and really get that true growl, grit, and gore. It’ll never sound like a machine, but like a breathing human being!
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!
