BFD Percussion Launched


You will have seen our video preview of it at the AES show in San Francisco and now it has been officially released…BFD Percussion is the fifth expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD premium acoustic drum module. Featuring everything from latin, world and drumkit-centric percussion to junk and kitchenware, Fxpansion say that BFD Percussion is by turns diverse, outlandish and simply inspirational and that they have even included the Kitchen Sink - in full BFD multi-sampled, multi-articulated form!

Kitchen Sink - But Does It Have Tap Tempo?
Recorded at Omega Studios in Maryland, USA by the same team that brought you BFD Jazz & Funk Collection, BFD Percussion's sounds provide a wealth of creative sonic possibilities when manipulated by BFD’s multi-channel drum mixing, groove-playing and audio processing technology.
The instruments are recorded with up to 46 velocity layers, using multiple articulations and multiple mic channels including lush, stereo ambience. As always, carefully-selected high-end mics, preamps and converters were used for the sessions. The resulting sounds faithfully capture the musicality, expressive depth and dynamic scope of this eclectic percussion collection, and are perfect for use in a variety of musical styles and genres.
Feature highlights include:
  • 26.1GB of vibrant percussion instruments with multiple mic positions and varied, expressive articulations.
  • MIDI Groove Library to feed your inspiration.
  • Latin and world percussion including African, Middle Eastern, South Asian and Irish folk instruments.
  • Junk and household items like pots, pans, cups, saw blades and much more!
  • A variety of bells, blocks, tambourines and chimes as well as effect sounds like waterphones, thundersheets and bowed gongs.
Pricing and Availability:
BFD Percussion is available direct from FXpansion’s online store for $249 / €199 / £129, excluding local taxes where applicable
