FXpansion BFD Horsepower-V.R
BFD Horsepower is an expansion for BFD3 with authentic mix-ready Americana-style drum sounds for a wide range of genres from blues and alt-country to garage rock and folk. The included Gretsch USA Custom kit, Sabian hats and Zildjian cymbals are recorded with a perfect balance between vintage dirt and modern punch.

BFD Horsepower's stick and brush kits are presented in 2 distinct processing styles alongside an unprocessed version. The result is a total of 6 kits instantly usable and inspiring in varied songwriting and production settings, with high levels of detail for maximum playability with electronic drums.

The personality of the sounds stems from drum treatment, mic and processing techniques. Warm ribbon-mic room ambience is accompanied by several 'character' channels with saturated vintage tones, custom plate processing and even a unique trash can mic for lo-fi dirt. Snares were damped with paper and tea towels with the rest of the kit left untreated and tuned to the room for an open and vibrant sound that effortlessly slots into your mixes.
