Brings a unique and powerful flair to BFD!
The third expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD, the BFD Deluxe Collection delivers drum sounds that are unparalleled in detail and recording quality. The entire sample collection was tracked at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio facility in Chicago. This percussion expansion pack contains some of the most sought-after drums and cymbals of all time, recorded at up to 128 velocity layers for expressive, pristine detail during play.
Recorded in a smaller and more upfront room than the one used to record the drums for BFD and BFD XFL, the Deluxe Collection has an extremely punchy and defined sound. Unique recording techniques also contribute to the clear sound and defined character of each virtual cymbal, drum, and percussion instrument in the pack. The drum sample collection includes some legendary Ludwig kits, including a Vistalite from the 1970s with 6 toms and 2 kicks and a 1965 Clubdate. Several modern classic kits are included also such as a Sonor Designer, a Yamaha Pro Tour, a DW Black Oyster Pearl, and a Gretsch USA Maple. Finally, a prototype BackYard Drums kit was flown to Chicago especially for the sessions. The Fxpansion Deluxe Collection represents the first time these exquisite boutique drums have ever been recorded. The virtual drum collection also contains a Ludwig Supraphonic 'Bonzo' snare and a Bison maple piccolo. The kicks were equipped with felt, rubber, or plastic beaters. Five Zildjian hihats, including 14" and 15" New Beats and a 13" Z Dynobeat, and a large assortment of Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, and Wuhan cymbals all have been included.
