BFD3 includes stunning new kits and sounds such as a brushed kit and processed drum presets for fast custom kit building, The mix-ready presets and modelling technology for tom resonance and cymbal swells give you complete control of the sound you want. Plus, the powerful built in environment for pattern creation and editing complete with a range of performances for effortless production of drum tracks practically indistinguishable from the real thing. This new sound library has been recorded by engineers including Andrew Scheps, Rail Jon Rogut and John Emrich.

Instant Results

BFD3's interface lets you easily browse for entire presets or make your own kits providing the death to fully sculpt any drum sound you want. Perfect your presets by retuning, damping and changing the velocity response or processing the multi mic sounds in BFD3s internal mixing engine. The Groove section gives you a versatile range of session drummer performances alongside pattern editing and Groove creation functions.

Newly Recorded Library

The new library on BFD3 was recorded in 2 locations for varied room ambience. Kits 1-4 recorded in LA's Ocean Studios feature additional mono and hardware compressed room channels in addition to stereo overhead and room mics whilst kits 5-7 are stick, brush and mallet versions of a custom Mapleworks kit recorded in a clean, tight vibrant room at Omega Studios in Rockville Maryland.

Intelligent Sound Modelling

BFD3's new features reduce the impact of the high level of detail on your system resources. Zero-loss compression for audio data on disk means less strain on your hard drive and decompression whilst streaming will incur minimal overhead. The new audio engine is more efficient and modelled tom resonance and blend give even more realism without using any memory hungry audio data.

Mix Deeply

BFD3's internal mixing engine has a DCAM-modelled compression filtering and other effects alongside great sounding EQ and algorithmic reverbs. External signals can be used as compression sidechains, ambient channels for individual drums can be isolated and processed separately. BFD3's new workflow improvements will even let you hide multiple drum and ambient mics for adopting simpler mixing.

Exporting and External Processing

BFD3 makes it easy to route multiple channels to discrete outputs for processing with other plugins or outboard gear. It even provides multi channel audio export to disk. Export Grooves using drag and drop - perfect for compiling loops.
