Kit 5 is probably the most comprehensive kit in the BFD3 Factory Content. It has 6 Toms which all have articulations with both Snare On and Snare Off. It has 3 different Snares of which one has all articulations with both Snare On and Snare Off samples. The Bass Drum was recorded with 2 different beaters and for Cymbals, you have 2 different Crash Cymbals, one Splash, one Ride, one China and an IceBell Cymbal that they classified as Accent. And of course, a Hihat with the usual 13 different hits. They even threw in a Mambo Cowbell for good measure.
Unlike Kit 1 (and Kits 3 and 4 that will be shared later), the “Room Far” mic in Kit 5 was recorded in Stereo as opposed to using 3 (and sometimes 5) different mono mics. This is basically the same mic setup as the BFD2 and BFD1 libraries. What does that mean? That the Stereo Width fader for this mic will have an effect in this kit!
Important note for those who already downloaded Kit 1:
1) To be on the safe side, do not extract the rar files directly to the same FXpansion folder.
2) You DO need to update BFD2.nkr or else you won’t be able to view the pictures of the instruments.
3) You don’t need to update FXpansion.nicnt or wallpaper.png especially if you are using the much nicer wallpaper by Spacehead.
4) Finally just cut Instruments\BFD3 Kit 5 from folder you extracted to to the same location in your existing FXpansion folder and Samples\BFD3 Kit 5 Samples to the same location in your existing FXpansion folder.
