A once mighty piece of software has been decimated by long periods of no development. Sadly the future does not look bright with the take-over by inMusic.
The new licence manager for BFD3, for example, introduced a 90-day subscription-style reauthorisation system. Even though you buy a perpetual licence you have to reauthorise BFD3 online every 90 days. This was introduced with no new terms of agreement and it was the users that spotted this change with no announcement from inMusic. I do not believe the website has ever been updated to reflect this new system.
Perhaps you're OK with reauthorising every 90 days. Except the software is so buggy it may not let you do this, or may do it at a seemingly random time period other than 90 days. You will not be able to use BFD3 at all if this happens.
I state this facts so that potential customers know exactly what they're getting into as inMusic surely won't tell you.Read Review
I've used BFD for many years to get better sounds for my electronic drum setup. I mostly want the raw, unprocessed sounds as these make playing feel more realistic. Processed sounds are fun but can "muddy up" the feel of your playing quite a bit.
The transition to InMusicBrands has been a bit tough but I'm hoping that this will be resolved soon.Read Review
