FXpansion updates BFD to v2.0.4.17 and releases Demo Versions


FXpansion has updated BFD2 to version and released stand-alone demo versions for Windows and Mac OS X.

Highlights in v2.0.4 include:

  • Significantly reduced CPU load and memory footprint.
  • Drumagog drum replacer support.
  • Improved compatibility & performance with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
  • Improved workflow and stability.

What the demo does do:

  • Runs in stand-alone for Windows XP, Vista and Mac OSX.
  • Responds to MIDI notes and CCs.
  • Contains a single 9-piece kit (the Ludwig Vistalite with some Paiste cymbals).
  • Loads key maps for some e-drums and MIDI controllers.
  • You can edit almost everything from its default state (kit piece parameters, grooves, mixer routings, effects, key and automation mapping).
  • Runs forever (i.e. it never times out).
  • Gives you a good indication of how well BFD2 will run on your computer system.

What the demo doesn't do:

  • Run as a plug-in of any kind.
  • Load or import anything (other that the supplied kit, mixer state and a selection of MIDI maps)
  • Save or export anything.
  • High resolution dynamics - you only get 4 velocity layers (rather than the potential 96 used in the full BFD2 library).
  • High quality audio fidelity - audio playback is 16-bit only (rather that 24-bit or 32-bit float).
  • Auxiliary outputs - it's stereo output only.

BFD2 Demo is available to anyone with an FXpansion website account (which are free).
