FXPansion BFD3

BFD was the first virutual drummer software I had ever used because it came with Pro Tools LE back in the good ole days. I loved it because I could throw it on a track and not have to mix it and it would instantly fit in the song. Now FXPansion has released the 3rd installment of this ground breaking virtual drummer featuring kits recorded by… what? ANDREW SHEPS. I read that right. Incredible. Based on that I should just buy it right now sight unseen.

BFD3 is the third generation of FXpansion’s flagship software acoustic drum studio: new levels of realism and ground-breaking features in an intuitive redesigned engine.
With stunning new kits with mix-ready presets and modelling technology for tom resonance and cymbal swells, BFD3’s audio engine delivers uncompromising detail. The revamped interface has a new mixer and sound browser for the easiest BFD experience yet.
BFD3’s all-new library is recorded in two fantastic rooms by engineers including Andrew Scheps, Rail Jon Rogut and John Emrich, giving you a diverse palette of drum tones out of the box. The sounds include a brushed kit and processed drum presets for fast custom kit-building. BFD3 also contains a powerful built-in environment for pattern creation and editing, complete with a range of performances by legendary drummers for effortless production of drum tracks indistinguishable from the real thing.
