Best Drum Production Workstation Ever?


Fxpansion tell us that BFD2 is now available and they are describing it as the most powerful acoustic drum production workstation ever. Here’s what they have to say about the new version in their own words…
BFD2's easy to use interface is redesigned from the ground up to give you more power and control for shaping your drums than ever before. It's fast and easy to set up and integrate into your digital audio workstation of choice.
Create expressive, complex drum parts using 55GB of rare, vintage, boutique and classic drumkits. Recorded at AIR Studios in London, BFD2's sound library combines extreme realism with stunning sound quality.
Mix your drums with flexible routing, submixing and built-in EQ, compressors and other effects.
Meanwhile, BFD2's Groove engine offers advanced editing, performance and humanization functions for creating realistic drum parts. You can even lay out a full song's drum track entirely within BFD2.
