FXpansion has announced a new update for all BFD2 registered users. BFD2.3 is now fully 64-bit compatible in Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later.
64-bit compatibility means that you are now able to use more of your system's RAM for loading BFD2 kits when running it in a 64-bit environment (the OS must be 64-bit, as must the DAW/host if running BFD2 as a plugin). Therefore:
- You no longer need to use 'bit-bridge' technologies to use BFD2 within a 64-bit environment.
- You can now assemble larger kits, with much higher quality settings, and take better advantage of the constantly growing library of BFD2 expansion packs.
- You can have more memory available for other tasks if you have a large amount of RAM in your system.
Please note that if you are updating from v2.0.x or v2.1.x, you must first download and run the v2.2 data patcher before installing v2.3.

BFD2 is available now in download and boxed versions from participating retailers as well from the FXpansion web shop.
