FXpansion releases BFD B.O.M.B (Big Orchestral & Marching Band) expansion pack for BFD (1.5 & 2.0)
17th April 2008
FXpansion has announced the release of BFD B.O.M.B (Big Orchestral Marching Band) - a new expansion pack for BFD 1.5 and BFD2 delivering a heavy payload of orchestral and marching drum instruments to your percussive arsenal.
The included sounds were conceived to fuel new creative adventures in all forms of music. Its marching snares offer explosive crack and punch, and the quad toms and hand cymbals are great alternatives to standard drum set toms and crashes. Meanwhile, the tonal bass drums rival celebrated analog drum machines for sheer low-end weight and power. The orchestral timpani and chimes, sampled over 1.5 octaves, are great for melodic lines or sound design.
All the sounds are recorded using carefully selected high-end equipment to capture the dynamics and sonic beauty of these instruments. As always with a BFD-compatible expansion pack, multiple mic positions, articulations and velocity layers are provided - most sounds feature up to 50 velocity layers, with many snares offering even higher levels of detail. BFD Big Orchestral Marching Band also includes a suite of Grooves allowing you to inject classic hip-hop street beats, drum-corps and marching performances into your music.
BFD B.O.M.B is available now priced at $199 / €149 / £99. Prices exclude VAT and local taxes where applicable. BFD B.O.M.B is available from all good music retailers as well as from our online shop.
