FXpansion BFD 2.0 virtual drum library is one of the biggest, greater and most expensive drum library.
FXpansion BFD 2.0 virtual drum library is compatible with Windows xp, Windows 7, Vista, MAC OS X, there wasn't any issues regarding compatibility.

The manual is quite clear and sufficient to get a better understanding of the drum sounds and library.

The general configuration and setup isn't very simple, and it requires some time because of the size of the library which is around 55 gb.

The typical functions are easily accessible and well structured on the chanels.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software work correctly in this configuration.

The software and gear is stable.

I'm getting good performances regarding drum grooves and velocity changes.

I've been using this product for just 2 months now, but I love it.

OVERALL OPINION

The greatest aspect of this product is the library, you get all those vintage type of drum sounds that are really unique, you get hundreds and hundreds of snare samples, and the kicks sound
great as well.

The price is pretty high, this expansion costs around 600$, however getting to know this library, it's pretty damn worthy, you have 55 gb of samples to mess around, you have plenty of features to humanize your groove, you can overlay many and many samples to create something that sounds unique.

I can say, if you can afford it, buy it.

The precision and quality of the sound is on a high-level, I like especially the snares and kicks, but the toms and hats sound decent also.

I"ve tried many and many drum expansions, this is one of the most expensive and one of the best, the only one I could think that is pretty similar regarding quality and features is Addictive Drums.

I would buy this product if I'm interested in drums library and I'm searching for something that sounds big and pro.
