Drum Cocktail


FXpansion have announced the latest addition to the BFD2 Expansion Kit range: BFD Cocktail,which they describe as a meticulous recording of a Yamaha Hipgig portable drumkit. Here's all the details that they have sent us...
With the usual high levels of detail, multiple channels and multiple articulations, BFD Cocktail is ready for you to sequence and mix using BFD 2.1's powerful software interface.
BFD Cocktail is recorded in the same room under the same studio conditions as the Jazz & Funk, B.O.M.B., JEX and Decatom expansions, as well as other Yamaha-based expansion kits. It has also been designed to sound great with BFD2's built-in library as well as with BFD libraries recorded in other locations.
New articulations include rim shots and rim clicks on the toms. The snare also offers rim clicks, with the stick version additionally offering flams, drags and the half-edge articulation, which can be used with positional sensing on suitable electronic drumkits.
Feature Highlights Include:
  • Low-cost, download-only expansion pack for BFD2
  • Snare played with sticks and hot-rods
  • Kick played with felt and rubber beaters
  • 15 BFD2 presets in various musical styles

The range already includes the Yamaha-based Oak Custom and Maple Custom Absolute kits, Signature Snares, the strange and wonderful 8 Bit Kit, Sonica's authentic Japanese Taiko Percussion, as well as the BFD Decatom and BFD JEX kits.
Pricing and Availability:
BFD Cocktail is GBP £25, Euro €35, USD $50 for all registered BFD2 owners
