New BFD2 Expansion - Yamaha Oak
« on: April 27, 2009, 07:33:13 AM »


I am pleased to announce a new expansion pack that I have produced for FXPansion's BFD2 platform.

BFD Oak Custom Expansion Kit features a high-end Yamaha Oak Custom drum kit and Bamboo snare.

Oak Custom 8"x10" Tom
Oak Custom 9"x12" Tom
Oak Custom 10"x13" Tom
Oak Custom 14"x14" Floor Tom
Oak Custom 16"x16" Floor Tom
Oak Custom 17"x24" Bass Drum
Yamaha Bamboo 6"x14" Snare Drum

Remo Heads
Snare - Coated Ambassador
Toms - Coated Emperor
Bass Drum - Powersonic

Oak is a great material for a drum shell: it resonates with a solid fundamental delivering awesome power when played. Consequently, the toms sound very full-bodied and the bass drum offers a devastating low-end response.

This download-only BFD v2.1 expansion kit includes toms played with sticks, mallets, and rods. The bass drum is provided in both wood and felt beater versions. The snare is played with sticks, and provided with the snare-strainer on and off.  New v2.1 articulations include 'rim shots' and 'rim clicks' on the toms (when hit with sticks). The snare also offers 'rim clicks' in addition to its standard articulations, as well as support for positional sensing when used with electronic drums.

In order to complete this set, a new 'lite' (16-velocity layers) Yamaha Bamboo snare in included. Its crack and strong tone make it very easy to place in a mix.  There will be two massive snare packs released at a later date that include all of the snares recorded at this session.  In total there are 10 snares, eight of which are artist series drums!

As an additional bonus, Yamaha Oak Custom comes complete with free cases! Useful for percussion or experimental drum-layering, these kit-pieces are created from recordings of the Yamaha drum cases being played with sticks. Recordings of the 10", 12", 14", and 24" drum cases are provided.

Also included with the download is a DTXtremeIII MIDI Map and .t3a Alldata file to make the DTXtremeIII electronic drum set plug and play with BFD2.

BFD Yamaha Oak Custom is GBP £25, Euro €35, USD $50 for all registered BFD2 owners
