Latest expansion pack adds even more versatility 01/03/06
The newest addition to the BFD range is the BFD Jazz & Funk Collection - the fourth expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD premium acoustic drum module.
Fxpansion tell us that the versatility of the precision instruments in BFD Jazz & Funk Collection mean that itâ€™s perfect for jazz, funk, pop, soul, hip-hop, R&B, blues, country, fusion, folk, rock and far beyond.
The collection was recorded at Omega Studios, Maryland, by a new engineering and production team led by John Emrich. The kits were recorded in a warm, bright-sounding room, using high-end mics and preamps chosen for their transparency and accuracy. Most of the instruments in the collection are provided in stick and brushed versions, with selected pieces also played with mallets, rods and even, in some cases, hands. A wide range of controlled, dynamic articulations are featured, including some never heard before in a BFD library. Snare cross-sticks and brush sweeps offer new expressive potential.
BFD Jazz & Funk Collection is centred around three kits - a Slingerland, a Yamaha and a 6-tom Gretsch. Several high-resolution hihats are included along with a vast array of Sabian, Wuhan and Zildjian cymbals.
