FXpansion has announced that BFD2, the next generation of the powerful acoustic drum production workstation, is now available.
BFD2's easy to use interface has been redesigned from the ground up to give you more power and control for shaping your drums than ever before. It's fast and easy to set up and integrate into your digital audio workstation of choice.
Create expressive, complex drum parts using 55GB of rare, vintage, boutique and classic drumkits. Recorded at AIR Studios in London, BFD2's sound library combines extreme realism with stunning sound quality.
Mix your drums with flexible routing, submixing and built-in EQ, compressors and other effects. BFD2's Groove engine offers advanced editing, performance and humanization functions for creating realistic drum parts. You can even lay out a full song's drum track entirely within BFD2.
All BFD1.5 registered users are eligible to purchase BFD2 upgrade. All BFD1.5 and expansion pack sound content is compatible with BFD2 and BFD2 upgrade. BFD2 & BFD2 upgrade is now available from music retailers and the FXpansion online shop.
