BFD3 is the third generation of FXpansion's flagship acoustic drum studio software and offers previously unheard of levels of realism and ground-breaking features in an intuitive, redesigned engine.

Featuring stunning new kits with mix-ready presets and modelling technology for tom resonance and cymbal swells, BFD3's audio engine delivers uncompromising detail while using lossless compression for efficiency. The revamped interface has a new mixer and sound browser for the easiest BFD experience yet.

BFD3's kits were recorded at two world-class studios with varied recording chains and room ambience, making a huge amount of sounds possible. The library includes expressive articulations, a brushed kit and processed drum presets for fast custom kit-building. BFD3 also contains a powerful built-in environment for pattern creation and editing, complete with a range of performances by legendary drummers for effortless production of drum tracks indistinguishable from the real thing.
