Re: FXpansion joins ROLI

Over three years into Roli takeover of Fxpansion and not one significant update to BFD. Shameful.They can't even get it running on Catalina after working on it for 4 months. Give it back to someone who cares about BFD and its loyal user base.

Re: macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility

It's been 8 months since any BFD update and 4 since the announcement that they are working on getting a Catalina ready version. Roli has killed this app. I have hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours invested in this program which I can only assume that in the near future will be dumped by Roli. ...

Re: BFD3 keeps asking for permission to use mic

Thanks. I read about the issue before upgrading to Mojave and had no problems with any other audio programs. They all asked for permission, I granted it and never heard from them again. My guess Fxpansion needs to do a minor fix to BFD since it is the only audio program that is having this problem. ...

Re: BFD3 keeps asking for permission to use mic

I only use BFD in standalone mode. It seems to be too laggy & crashy running in ProTools. It asks me every time I boot up BFD3 and some time during use. Here is my rig... MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) macOs 10.14.5 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3 Radeon Pro 455 2 GB Intel HD Graphics 5...

BFD3 keeps asking for permission to use mic

I'm running BFD3 v3.3.0b44 and MacOS 10.14.5 (18F132) on 2017 MacBook Pro.

How do I get BFD to stop asking me if it can use my microphone? I already gone into prefs and ok'd it. again and again...

BFDLAC 24 to 16 bit conversion distorts files

To decrease overhead (load times and disk space) I've converted all of my WAV and BFDLAC files to 16bit BFDLAC files (Into a new folder on a new drive, leaving old files untouched). After relinking to the new 16bit files, any preset loaded into BFD3 plays back completely distorted (and very loud). A...

Re: FXpansion joins ROLI

Two years in and there have been only incremental updates for BFD. What if anything should long time owners of BFD expect from Roli? At least let us know if you have anything in the works.

Re: Routing BFD3 outputs through Apollo interface

Sorry I don't have my rig setup at the moment, but it is the original Apollo Quad Thunderbolt interface. 8 analog outs.

Re: Feature Requests

I would love to not see a warning every time I quit BFD. Sure it comes in handy when I've made changes and forgotten to save, but it makes the program feel a bit unprofessional. I always feel like I may have done something I shouldn't have.

Re: Feature Requests

Is there a list of requests in order of ranking floating around? It would be cool to know which ones have a chance of being implemented.

Routing BFD3 outputs through Apollo interface

Does anyone know how to route BFD separate outs through an Apollo? I want to use BFD as a stand alone and route the individual outs through the Apollo interface. I've been stumped for a few years now. I kind of gave up and just use the stereo outs.
Thanks, Mick

Re: Sync with Pro Tools 12

Sounds like it might be a preroll issue.

or check to see that PT is playing back from the insertion point (play start marker follows timeline selection)

I'm guessing you may have figured this out already.

BFD3 and Apollo interface

I have BFD3 and an Apollo 8 Thunderbolt interface running off a mac mini. I run BFD3 as a stand-alone. I would like to send individual drum channels to the Apollo console (mixer) so that I can access my UAD effects in the Apollo separately. Right now all I can do is send 4 (virtual) channels into th...

Gretsch Modern Folk Kit pieces missing in browser

I just purchased the Modern Folk Kit from Drumdrops. Download & install seemed to go fine, all drums appear in Audio folder and kit scanned in and registered as usual. But all I can see in BFD3 are the three rack toms, nothing else. Kits & presets load but only rack toms are found. Rescanned...

Re: BFD3 Load Times..............................................

Ok, here is what I posted in October 2014 to no response... Here is something I find weird. When I first boot up BFD3, the first time I load a preset, it takes a long time to load (a minute or longer, for any preset), but the next time I load that preset (after having loaded a different one), it loa...
