FXpansion has announced the release of the latest addition to the BFD family: BFD Eco is a streamlined, fun and affordable software instrument for acoustic drums, based on the BFD2 engine. Optimized for flexibility and power while being easy to use, BFD Eco is provided with an extensive built-in library of drum sounds and patterns, and is also compatible with the wide range of FXpansion and 3rd-party add-on expansions.

BFD Eco gives you easy access to the some of the best sounds in the BFD2 library, recorded at London's Air Studios. The included sounds are full of dramatic levels of detail and mojo - anything but sterile, BFD Eco is imbued with a musical character.

Included are a multitude of presets that showcase BFD Eco's powerful, punchy-sounding mixing section. The EQ and dynamics/effect processing allow you to sculpt the raw sounds and lush stereo ambience for any situation. DCAM circuit-modelled compression, filtering and drive provide hardware-style tone and grit, while an integrated version of Overloud's Breverb plate algorithm can be used for artificial reverb effects.

BFD Eco also contains a Groove section containing over 1500 drum patterns to drag into your DAW, to sequence on the built-in Drum Track or to simply loop continuously. Preview patterns in sync with your project and use the humanization effects to adjust the feel to your needs. You can even export a stereo mixdown from the Groove engine - ideal for generating loops and breakbeats to use as audio tracks or in any sampler instrument.

Other advanced features are customizable keymapping, electronic drum support, the ability to combine kit-pieces from different expansion libraries, and an interface perfectly balanced between ease of use and powerful flexibility. BFD Eco also can be upgraded to BFD2 - both are fully preset-compatible to enable a seamless transition.

Highlights include:

  • 5 kicks, 6 snares, 12 toms and 3 hihats.
  • 11 cymbals and selection of percussion.
  • 15 built-in effects including EQ, filtering, dynamics, drive, reverb and more.
  • Groove section with over 1500 patterns and advanced humanization.
  • Customizable keymaps and electronic drum support.
  • Built-in Stereo audio export.
  • Over 40 great-sounding presets.
  • Full plugin integration for your digital audio workstation.
  • Compatible with FXpansion and 3rd-party expansion libraries.
  • Upgrade path to BFD2.

BFD Eco is available now worldwide for £84 / $149 / €94 excluding local taxes where applicable.
