The included sounds were conceived to fuel new creative adventures in
all forms of music. Its marching snares offer explosive crack and
punch, and the quad toms and hand cymbals are great alternatives to
standard drum set toms and crashes. Meanwhile, the tonal bass drums
rival celebrated analog drum machines for sheer low-end weight and
power. The orchestral timpani and chimes, sampled over 1.5 octaves,
are great for melodic lines or sound design.
All the sounds are recorded using carefully selected high-end
equipment to capture the dynamics and sonic beauty of these
instruments. As always with a BFD-compatible expansion pack, multiple
mic positions, articulations and velocity layers are provided - most
sounds feature up to 50 velocity layers, with many snares offering
even higher levels of detail. BFD Big Orchestral Marching Band also
includes a suite of Grooves allowing you to inject classic hip-hop
street beats, drum-corps and marching performances into your music.
