This add-on pack for FXpansion's BFD premium acoustic software drum module will expand and intensify the BFD system. BFD XFL's 5 DVDs arm you with 22GB of hyper-detailed drum components, all recorded with the same top-end studio gear and microphones as the original. BFD XFL revisits Eldorado Studio to give you the same lush ambience that gave BFD its unique, authentic character.
The percussion expansion pack expands upon the sonic possibilities of the original Fxpansion BFD by providing a broader range of virtual kit pieces, some struck with brushes and mallets, toms with damping tape on the skins, and a kick with a felt beater. The virtual cymbal collection is diversified with splashes, Chinas and accents, while all rides include bell samples. BFD XFL also gives you a selection of other virtual percussion instruments, including cowbells, jamblocks, tambourines, and even handclaps and fingersnaps.
Some of the Fxpansion BFD XFL snares have up to 93 velocity layers, offering unparalleled realism and responsiveness. Also featured are incredibly detailed hi-hats which are equipped with not only the closed, half-open, and open positions of the original BFD, but also quarter-open and 3-quarters-open positions. This makes BFD respond even more naturally, especially when using an electronic drum-pad system.
BFD XFL virtual percussion pack brings you closer to assembling your dream kit by providing a range of exclusive and unique kit pieces. A variety of hard-to-find snares are supplied such as a Pearl Chad Smith signature and a vintage 1940s WFL Ludwig dual strainer. A huge selection of rare and desirable cymbals are featured, including an antique Bosphorus ride with rivets, and many artist stock prototype rides and crashes.

Comments about Fxpansion XFL 22GB Percussion Expansion Pack for BFD:
I used BFD for about a year and loved it, but when I purchased the XFL expansion set, it took BFD to a whole new level. The extra velocity layers in these kits add a lot more detailed expression to BFD tracks (make sure you create subtle variances in your MIDI note velocities to take advantage of this). The Maple, Birch and other sets this adds have been very valuable to me as they have fit many of my mixes better than the stock BFD sampled kits. The TAMA sets have a really sweet snare. One thing to note: you'll want to have at least 1 gb ram to use the large kits in XFL. I run with 1.5 gb. This was considered to be a lot of ram a couple of years ago when I acquired XFL but now it's a pretty typical ram configuration in a small studio DAW. If you want really detailed drum tracks and have enough memory in your machine, you'll love XFL.
