The Fast, Easy, Affordable Way to Get Drum Sounds!So, you don't have the time/patience/space to put mics on a complete drum kit... let alone find a drummer willing to stay up all night with you, whenever you feel like tweaking/recording drum sounds?? You're clearly not alone! Some of us live in apartments, right? Try recording drum sounds at 2AM... you'll get a load of knocks on the wall and a lot more dirty looks and/or visits from the cops. Fortunately, you don't have to scrimp and save to get a virtual drum instrument that's as flexible as you need it to be, and more importantly, that sounds FANTASTIC too. What we're talking about here is BFD eco, the affordable, CPU-friendly version of the world-famous BFD drum software.
Inside BFD eco, you get easy access to 40 mixed preset kits and 1,500 grooves aimed to cover practically every musical styling you could imagine. Doesn't matter whether you're recording jazz, funk, metal, rock, or whatever, you'll have the kit sounds in here to get your tracks slamming. Of course, you can also mix and match individual kit pieces to go on and build your own 12-piece kits... so if you're a tweakhead, you're going to be happy with BFD eco. But what we really love about BFD eco is that you don't have to be a tweakhead to use it. If you're a singer/songwriter wanting to get drum tracks on your tracks to build your own demo and/or communicate to a drummer what you want to have happen during each part of a song... well, BFD eco is your ticket. It's insanely easy to use right from the get-go. But down the line when you develop your skills, you can get as tweaky as you want adding effects and ambience to your tracks, customizing kits, etc.
Long story short, BFD eco is the musician's virtual drum instrument. And it's also the perfect introduction to the world of BFD. Using BFD eco, you'll be working with some of the very same tools in the full version, so making the transition from this to the full version won't be an issue. And you've got to appreciate that.
