BFD3 by FXpansion is their next generation acoustic drum studio, ready to create realistic, studio quality drum tracks and grooves. Let BFD master Eli Krantzberg show you how to get the most out of this powerful software and make professional sounding, record ready drum tracks fast! Eli starts with an introduction and then dives right in showing you how to work with the Browser and Kit Display. Global Controls are then demonstrated, followed by how to load presets and kits, audition individual sounds and import samples.
Next, Eli shows you how to edit the individual drum’s panning and pitch, as well as bleed, spill, loudness and ambience. Damping, choke and cymbal swell controls are explained and demonstrated, and then tutorials on articulation and resonance tweaking are given.
The Mixer is then revealed and Eli covers every feature and function such as Faders Mode, Tweaks, Effects and Sends, as well as in-depth coverage of the Effects Editor and how to use them. Compression and Sidechaining are also shown, as well as how to export BFD files and audio into your host DAW.
Eli now introduces you to The Groove Engine, where the real BFD3 magic happens. You’ll see how to browse, play, edit and create your own grooves and rudiments with realistic sticking patterns and more. Eli wraps up the series with detailed tutorials on mapping and automation within BFD3 to create ultra realistic drum parts with great feel, and how to set up BFD3’s preferences for optimized workflow and more.
