BFD Eco is a streamlined, fun and affordable software instrument for acoustic drums based on the award-winning BFD2 engine. Supplied with a selection of the best BFD2 sounds, it can also be expanded with the wide range of FXpansion and 3rd-party add-ons.
BFD Eco's versatile mixing and EQ/FX section allows sculpting of the kit and lush ambience for any musical situation, with a multitude of genre-based presets to get you started. Meanwhile, the integrated Groove player delivers diverse, ready-made drum patterns full of flavour and realism.
Featuring an interface perfectly balanced between ease of use and flexibility, BFD Eco is provided as a standalone application and as a plugin for conveniently injecting realistic and powerful drums directly into your projects.
DETAIL AND POWER
BFD Eco gives you easy access to a selection of the best kits in the BFD2 library, recorded at London's Air Studios. The included sounds are full of dramatic levels of detail and mojo... Anything but sterile, their musical character that sets them apart from the homogenized, flat sounds found elsewhere.
Included are a multitude of presets that showcase BFD Eco's powerful, punchy-sounding mixing section. The built-in EQ and DCAM-modelled compression allow you to sculpt the raw sounds and lush stereo ambience for any situation while other FX such as delay, filtering, drive, bit-crushing, ring-mod and an integrated Overloud Breverb plate reverb provide additional creative possibilities.
BFD Eco contains a Groove section with over 1500 authentic-sounding drum patterns. These can be sequenced within BFD Eco or dragged into your DAW to be edited and arranged further.
Patterns can be previewed and humanized in sync with your project. You can even export a stereo mixdown from the Groove engine - ideal for generating loops and breakbeats to use as audio tracks or to load into any sampler instrument.
TWEAK AND CUSTOMIZE
Other advanced features that set BFD Eco apart from the competition are its customizable keymapping, electronic drumkit support, the ability to combine kit-pieces from different expansion libraries, and an interface perfectly balanced between ease of use and powerful flexibility.
