Evolved Acoustic Drum Software

EFFORTLESS POWER - Instant results with unlimited depth

BFD3 is designed to sound great while offering as much depth as you need. Browse for entire presets, quickly compile custom kits or mould any drum sound you desire by retuning, damping, and processing multiple mics with the powerful internal mixing engine.

AUGMENTED REALISM - Intelligent drum and dynamics modelling

BFD3 introduces modelled tom resonance and bleed which provides a natural-sounding 'glue' which blends the sound of the kit together. The modelling varies with the characteristics and tuning of any combination of drums - something that cannot be achieved only by using samples. BFD3 also includes improved dynamics matching across drums and a swell-modelling algorithm for more realistic cymbal washes.

MIXING AND EXPORTING - New effects and workflow enhancements

The internal BFD3 mixing engine has DCAM-modelled compression, filtering and other effects alongside great-sounding EQ and algorithmic reverbs. You can even use an external signal as a compression sidechain source.

"It's a huge step forward" 
Simon Franglen 

"We'd all love to record great drummers in great rooms all the time, but that's not always an option. For the rest of the time BFD3 is the best way to create a natural sounding drum performance."
Andrew Scheps
