BFD3 is the third generation of FXpansion's flagship software acoustic drum studio: new levels of realism and ground-breaking features in an intuitive redesigned engine. With stunning new kits with mix-ready presets and modelling technology for tom resonance and cymbal swells, BFD3's audio engine delivers uncompromising detail. The revamped interface has a new mixer and sound browser for the easiest BFD experience yet.

FXpansion BFD3 GUI

BFD3's all-new library is recorded in two fantastic rooms by engineers including Andrew Scheps, Rail Jon Rogut and John Emrich, giving you a diverse palette of drum tones out of the box. The sounds include a brushed kit and processed drum presets for fast custom kit-building. BFD3 also contains a powerful built-in environment for pattern creation and editing, complete with a range of performances by legendary drummers for effortless production of drum tracks indistinguishable from the real thing.

    • I had your same problem because I don't intend to switch to windows 10 even if in the end I think I will have to surrender to the inevitable.

      But I did it! My BFD3 works in windows 7 but I have a lot of tweaks that I can't define a standard procedure.

      First of all I installed the version that I didn't know worked only with Windows 10 and I received your own warning messages regarding the absence of .dll files. I downloaded the .dlls but nothing.

      I uninstalled everything and installed the demo of BFD3 from the FXpansion site that also works with windows7 but I had to get around the problem of registration and the fundamental absence of a component: the License Manager!

      I installed version 3.2.2 again, put aside a copy of the License Manager, uninstalled everything again and installed the demo version.

      At this point I used the serial number reported in 3.2.2 and I managed to use the License Manager to install the libraries.

      In the end, the version I use is but it works perfectly in windows7 (also in stand-alone version both 32 and 64bit) and works without problems with Cubase Pro 10.5

      You will have to go a little crazy but you will succeed. Don't give up ... and have good music.

    • How do you get this to work on MAC. Says it needs Licenece Manager. When you just drop the app into Applications folder.
      The install you can't see the buttons so when I did figure out what was NEXT it say enjoy BFD but didn't install anything?
      Any Help would be appreciated
