BFD Deluxe Collection Pack is a download-only expansion pack for BFD3/BFD2 BFD Eco and BFD Eco DV, FXpansion's software acoustic drum systems. Recorded with an incredible array of rare and vintage microphones at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, USA, the kits include vintage sets alongside modern classics, a boutique prototype BackYard Drums kit, several extra snares, kick versions with different beaters and meticulously recorded hihats and cymbals.
The recording techniques employed contribute hugely to the musicality and definition of the sounds. Tuning, mic placement and processing of certain channels were conducted by Steve Albini. The mics, including Josephson e22, c42 and c609, Royer R122 ribbons and the fabled Altec 150 'coke bottles', were routed through the preamps on a custom Neotek console.
BFD Deluxe Collection's sounds feature stunning levels of detail, with many sounds captured with 128 velocity layers. The up-front, punchy sounds sit beautifully in your mixes before any processing is applied. BFD Deluxe Collection is perfect for rock and metal, and any other styles of music demanding expressive, intensely musical sounding drums.
