The FXpansion BFD 3 virtual drum kit is now half price

Looking for a high-end virtual drum kit that sounds realistic and huge all at the same time? FXpansion’s BFD has long been a go-to, with the latest BFD 3 offering a revamped interface, a new sound library, and more. And, you can now get FXpansion BFD 3 for only $175 — which represents a discount of a hefty 50%. You can get it for yourself straight from Plugin Boutique.

FXpansion BFD 3 could help in a variety of situations. For starters, the software is built to offer deep-sounding kits, and allows you to quickly and easily dial in a preset, or do a deep dive into individual settings. You can control things like drum tuning, damping, and more — and you can even bring multiple mics into the mix with the software’s internal mixing engine.

The software goes a step further too. A big part of making a recording sound natural is ensuring that you get small details like bleed into other microphones — and BFD 3 offers a modeled tom resonance and bleed to help give the overall sound that detail.

BFD 3 also offers some incredible nuance to what you can do with it. You’ll get an impressive 80 velocity levels, along with rim-clicks and rom-shots on toms, and even bells on hi-hats. The library is absolutely huge — uncompressed, it’s a 160GB library, but BFD 3 offers lossless audio compression that ensures the library only takes up 55GB of space on your hard drive.

Out of the box, BFD 3 offers seven kits, including four kits that were recorded in LA’s Ocean Studios, and three kits that are a stick, brush, and mallet versions of custom Mapleworks kit recorded in Omega Studios in Maryland. Of course, you can also buy expansion packs to add to that library, making it even bigger.

You can get FXpansion BFD 3 for yourself for only $175 straight from Plugin Boutique.
