FXpansion presented the latest addition to the BFD2 Expansion Pack range – a collection of Yamaha artist signature snares for your BFD2 library. With the usual high levels of detail, multiple channels and multiple articulations, BFD Signature Snares Vol.1 is ready for you to sequence and mix using BFD 2.1’s powerful software interface.
The snares are captured in the same room as the previous Yamaha expansion kits and the Jazz & Funk, Percussion and B.O.M.B expansion packs, in Omega Studios, Rockville, MD, USA. The tight, precise and very playable sound makes them sound great when combined with any kit-pieces in the BFD library.
BFD v2.1’s support for custom articulations allows these snares to offer ‘rim clicks’ in addition to the standard snare articulations, as well as positional sensing when used with electronic drums.
Feature Highlights Include:
* Five signature Snares
1. Roy Haynes Signature Snare Drums (14″ x 5.5″)
2. Bamboo Snare Drum (14″ x 6.5″)
3. FHP (fibreglass) Snare Drum (14″ x 6″)
4. Dave Weckl Signature Model (14″ x 5″)
5. Mike Bordin Signature Model (14″ x 6.5″)
* Multiple articulations including rim clicks
* Played with various beaters (sticks, brushes, mallets & rods)
BFD Signature Snares Vol.1 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, the strange and wonderful 8 Bit Kit, Sonica's authentic Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.
