[Musikmesse] Fxpansion BFD2.3
FXpansion has announced BFD2.3, now fully 64-bit compatible in Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later.
64-bit compatibility means that you are now able to use more of your system's RAM for loading BFD2 kits when running it in a 64-bit environment (the OS must be 64-bit, as must the DAW/host if running BFD2 as a plugin).
Therefore, according to Fxpansion:
- You no longer need to use 'bit-bridge' technologies to use BFD2 within a 64-bit environment.
- You can now assemble larger kits, with higher quality settings, and take better advantage of the library of BFD2 expansion packs.
- You can have more memory available for other tasks if you have a large amount of RAM in your system.
Note that if you are updating from v2.0.x or v2.1.x, you must first download and run the v2.2 data patcher before installing v2.3.
Availability & Pricing:
BFD2 is available now in download and boxed versions from participating retailers as well from the FXpansion web shop.
Pricing is $149 / €119 / £99 inc. VAT where applicable until 31 March, 2012. BFD2 is usually $299, €199, £175 inc VAT.
BFD2.3 is a fre update for all existing BFD2.x owners and can been accessed via their FXpansion.com user account.
