FXpansion in the UK announces BFD Horsepower, available as a download or boxed USB version for a 50-percent discounted price until April 15, 2016, the latest addition to its library of expansion packs for its BFD3 Evolved Acoustic Drum Software. BFD Horsepower focuses on an authentic selection of mix-ready, Americana-style drum sounds suited to a variety of genres, ranging from blues and alt-country to garage rock and folk.
BFD3 is the third generation of FXpansion’s flagship software acoustic drum studio for Mac (OS X 10.6.8 or higher) and Windows (7 or higher) with 32- and 64-bit support for AAX, AU, RTAS, and VST plug-in formats, as well as a stand-alone version.
As a 55 GB full installation, BFD3 promises new levels of realism and groundbreaking features in an intuitive, redesigned engine to deliver uncompromising detail with stunning new kits, mix-ready presets, and modeling technology for tom resonance and cymbals. Containing a powerful, built-in environment for pattern creation and editing, BFD3 comes complete with a range of performances by distinguished drummers recorded in two locations by esteemed engineers.
BFD Horsepower boosts BFD’s percussive palette further as a 48 GB full installation, thanks to an authentic selection of mix-ready, Americana-style drum sounds.
BFD Horsepower’s stick and brush kits are presented in two distinct processing styles alongside an unprocessed version. The result is a total of six kits.
The sounds stem from drum treatment, mic and processing techniques. Warm ribbon mic room ambience is accompanied by several ‘character’ channels with saturated vintage tones, custom plate processing, and even a “trash can mic” for lo-fi dirt. Snares were damped with paper and tea towels with the rest of the kit left untreated and tuned to the room for an open and vibrant sound.
BFD Horsepower is available to purchase as a 48 GB full install download directly from FXpansion.
