"Endings" fills in BFD Eco nowhere to be found!

Postby Drums2013 » Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:00 pm

Hello everyone!

Is it just me or are there not any "ending fills" in BFD Eco? I couldn't find any mention in the manual.

I love the grooves and fills that are available, but having no "ending fills" makes it a little bit difficult to close a drum track. So now my only option is to go fade out every time.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

There are many I guess but if you type Outro in the search box it'll give you all they available ones, there's about 25 to 30 of them. I'm guessing you're using Eco in stand alone but my advice would be to use it within a host sequencer, drag you midi loops in to your sequencers midi track and use it's editing features. BFD Eco is very basic in terms of midi loop editing and in truth it's more a case of arrangement than editing.

Thanks Steve!

I've type "Outro" in the grooves search area and nothing shows up!I've looked under Library as well! No go!

Is it possible that BFD Eco didn't load properly?

Cheers

Yes sorry about that Luc

I just checked again and as I thought I have quite a few groove libraries from groove monkey and that's where they came from.
Sadly it seems there are none with BFD Eco.

Do you have a sequencer ? If so then you're going to have to learn how to write and record your own drum tracks.
In my view it's a much better method as you are in complete control.

The other options if you don't have an audio/midi sequencer would be either to expand your groove library or dare I say it, upgrade to BFD2 and BFD3 as they both have fully usable drum editors.

Hey Steve!

Thanks for having taken the time to reply! I just bought a sequencer a few weeks ago it's a M-Audio Keystation 49es
but haven't gotten to use it yet. You probable guessed by now that I don't know much about MIDI. It seems so complicated.

Do you have any books or websites to recommend on the fundamentals of MIDI?

For now I'll just use Eco as a standalone in audio form just to add a couple of drum tracks to some unfinished song.

Thanks for your help and time.

Luc

ps: Eco also doesn't have an "Undo" button which is unbelievable for any software program.

Hi Luc

When I said sequencer I was talking about software, your keystation is NOT what I meant.

I use cakewalk sonar but there are lots of others out there like cubase, logic, audacity, pro-tools, reaper, studio one,
just to name a few of the most common ones.

Hey Steve!

Got you! I use Reaper as well as Tracktion 4 and I've also used Cubase in the past.

I'll take my time and figure it out.


Thanks for everything.

Cheers
