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!

BFD3 is fantastic!

Benni D., 03.10.2015
BFD3 is a truly excellent virtual drum software! Having previous experience using Superior Drummer and Steven Slate Drums, I was blown away by the quality surrounding BFD3.

The overall sound of a drum software is what matters most to me, and BFD3 sounds amazing. FXspansion put a lot of effort into carefully recording a large library of drum sounds - every drum has been recorded across multiple velocities and articulations.

The features offered in BFD3 match the quality of the included drum sounds. Kits are highly editable - from moving the distance of the overheads or room mics, or spreading them further apart, to adjusting cymbal swell and simple things like drum tuning. BFD3 contains an inbuilt sequencer in which you can program your drum patterns - either by drawing them in, recording them with an electric kit, or by using some of the included grooves! One of my favourite features is the rudiment tool, which allows you to easily draw in drum rudiments - such as paradiddles, and their variants.

My only criticism of BFD3 is that the GUI is not as user friendly as it could be for newcomers to this software. Not that it's bad - I really like it, but it did take a while to learn where everything was and what was in each menu etc.

BFD3 is fantastic. It's a great songwriting tool, but can also fully replace a drummer on a record if put into the hands of a skilled mix engineer. I've barely scraped the surface of BFD3 - would highly recommend checking it out on YouTube if you're interested, FXspansion have produced some great video tutorials introducing the software.
