FXpansion has released the BFD Orchestral expansion pack that delivers a unique set of concert percussion for BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2 sessions. The included sounds are designed for film and commercial composition as well as for progressive music production and creative sound design.
BFD Orchestral features a variety of orchestral bass drums, snares and hand cymbals alongside chromatically tuned timpani and concert chimes which are sampled over 1.5 octaves and can be used for unusual melodic lines. Other highlights include suspended cymbals with huge decays due to the lack of a stand to dampen vibrations.
All the sounds in BFD Orchestral are recorded using carefully selected high-end equipment to capture the dynamics and sonic beauty of these instruments which have the versatility to fit into all kinds of genres and mixes.
Price: $70, €55, £49 from the FXpansion webshop.
