FXpansion BFD Eco

0210 FXpansion BFD Eco FXpansion is proud to present the latest addition to the BFD family: BFD Eco is a streamlined, fun and affordable software instrument for acoustic drums, based on the award-winning BFD2 engine. Optimized for flexibility and power while being incredibly 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 that sets it apart from the homogenized, flat sounds found elsewhere.

Included are over 40 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-modeled compression, filtering and drive provide hardware-style tone and grit, while 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, or to sequence on the built-in Drum Track. 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 loops and breakbeats.

Other advanced features that set BFD Eco apart from the competition are its 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.

Feature 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

BFD Cocktail is the latest in a growing family of low-cost, high-quality downloadable expansions for BFD2.

The range already includes the Yamaha-based Oak Custom and Maple Custom Absolute kits, Signature Snares, the strange and wonderful 8 Bit Kit, Sonica’s authentic Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.

Pricing & Availability:

BFD Eco will be available in all good music retailers as well as from www.fxpansion.com beginning April 2010 for $149.00 MAP.
