I need a little convincing to upgrade. Here is what might help me:
- the sounds...by all accounts better than BFD2 so check
- the presets...I struggle with drum mixing. So good presets that push me off in the right direction are critical. Are the presets better than BFD2? Will I find it easier to get good sounding drums?
I have to agree. It is the best out there. BFD2 was very good. BFD3 raises the bar both in ease of use and in sound quality. It also is faster to load samples. The people at FXpansion have something to be proud of.
I would tend to agree. The engine sounds far more refined, and even makes the older expansion kits sound really nice (I was rather surprised using the Deluxe pack at good it sounded in BFD3 - I never got along with it in BFD2). Rail and John did a great job with the library. I love the headroom on the kits, and they sound musical (then again, everything from those two always sounded like music).
Kit and map creation, as well as audio production, with BFD3 is far faster and easier than BFD2. Sometimes, I have to use BFD2, and it's a night and day experience as far as time and usability.
