Drum realism in your pocket!

EGM93, 08.06.2018
As a frustrated home-studio engineer with no easy access to a proper studio I've been using BFD3 as the main source for drum tracking on my DAW.
What makes this software unique is the astonishing stylistic flexibility you get from the 100% dry-recorded drums and the ability to tweak the resonance of each drum on the several ambient mics!
Of course, the same hundreds of hours of drum mixing guidance and experience is needed to achieve desirable results, but I dare say to an extent that BFD drums are so well-recorded that subtle processing is the key. Some of their expansion packs (such as Jazz and Funk and Vintage recording techniques) are also a good addition to this holy grail of a drum-software!

PROS
Detailed kit pieces
A healthy collection of ambient mics
Lots of tweaking flexibility
Every effect you need to make a superb mix
A perfect practice partner

CONS
Some of the presets for funk don't cut it
That's it

So definitely the best software for natural sounding drums!

Karlsson1974, 29.08.2016
This was well worth the wait! It was easy as pie to install - unlike some other similar products out there which i must admit, took both time and tested my patience!

Moreover, unlike with digital downloads, it's nice to have an actual physical product on your shelf! The software comes installed on a USB key which is included in the package. A nice detail was the metal box with the BFD logo on top - in which the USB key can be safely and conveniently stored.

Pros:

Worth every penny i dropped on this baby! Although i'm aware the existence of at least one other good, if not slightly better product, the ease of use and features this baby pack are second to none! Sound samples are pretty amazing! Definitely better and easier than trying to record your own drums!

Cons:

Can't really think of any at this stage!

Final verdict:

I highly recommend it!
