BFD Audio has recently launched BFD Player, a free drum plugin available for both Mac and Windows. The plugin comes with a core library of 5GB, offering high-quality drum kits, grooves, and mixing options for music producers and songwriters.
As a part of BFD’s esteemed line of products, BFD Player maintains the brand’s reputation for assisting professional music producers in creating hits. The flagship product, BFD3, has won numerous awards over the past decade. The new BFD Player aims to provide the same level of quality, but at no cost to the user.
The BFD Player is user-friendly and can be used as a virtual instrument in your preferred Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) or in standalone mode. It also comes pre-loaded with professionally mixed kits and grooves. Users can further extend the capabilities of the BFD Player with BFD’s growing collection of sound libraries.
The plugin also includes 340 grooves, created by top drummers, that are fully searchable based on genre, tempo, and even leading hand. This makes it easier to find the right groove to fit your song. The inbuilt mixer allows users to achieve a professional drum sound. There are presets available for those new to recording, or for those who want to craft their own mix, they can take over and even route the drum outputs separately to process the sounds with their favourite plugins.
The kit piece browser feature within BFD Player allows users to swap drum components with alternatives from various expansion packs. This feature enables users to craft distinctive drum tracks by blending elements across expansions, adding energy and authenticity to every beat. Beyond the free Core library, the kit piece browser expands the capabilities of the plugin, allowing users to add their unique character to their tracks.
For those interested in exploring the BFD Player, it is available for free download. This is an opportunity to access high-quality drum kits, grooves, and mixing options without any cost.
