BFD XFL is an expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD acoustic software drum module running on Windows and Mac. BFD XFL comprises no less than 22 Gigabytes of drum components, including many rare and hard-to-find vintage kit pieces as well as detailed hi-hats, pieces struck with brushes and mallets, cowbells and finger-snaps.
BFD XFL revisits Californian studio, Eldorado Recording, and professional audio engineer Steve Duda (NIN, Pitchshifter, A Perfect Circle) to give you the same ambience that gave BFD its character. All kit pieces for BFD XFL were recorded with the same top-end studio equipment and microphones as the original for complete sonic compatibility.

BFD XFL is available for pre-order direct from FXpansions online store for $249 / €199 / £129. BFD XFL will also be available in stores in some countries.
