FXpansion Announces BFD XFLFirst expansion pack for their acoustic drum module BFD (July 02, 2004)
BFD XFL is the highly anticipated expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD premium acoustic software drum module. BFD XFL comprises no less than 22 Gigabytes of hyper-detailed drum components, including many rare and hard-to-find vintage kit pieces as well as incredibly detailed hihats, pieces struck with brushes and mallets, cowbells and finger-snaps!
BFD XFL revisits top Californian studio, Eldorado Recording, and professional audio engineer Steve Duda (NIN, Pitchshifter, A Perfect Circle) to give you the same lush ambience that gave BFD its unique, authentic character. All kit pieces for BFD XFL were recorded with the same top-end studio equipment and microphones as the original for complete sonic compatibility and unparalleled realism and control.
A broader range of drum kit pieces, many of which are struck with brushes and mallets; variations such as toms with damping tape on the skins, kick with felt beater, and hi-hats with mounted tambourine.
A selection of percussion accessories and extra hits, including cowbells, jamblocks, tambourines, and even handclaps and finger snaps.
Up to 93 velocity layers per articulation, for the ultimate in realism and responsiveness.
Incredibly detailed hi hats recorded not only at the closed, ½-open and open positions of the original BFD, but also ¼-open and ¾-open positions – each at many different velocities.
A huge selection of rare and desirable kit pieces brings you even closer to assembling your dream kit!
