GURU, released in 2005, was another innovative software product which spawned a slew of imitators. Combining drum-oriented sample playback, loop-slicing, effects and multi-part sequencing into an incredibly creative unified tool, GURU's design was the precursor to its spiritual successor, Geist.
When it appeared in 2003, BFD pioneered a new way of approaching acoustic drums - dedicated and specialized control over drum mic channels, expressive drum articulations and rich dynamic and timbral detail over the velocity range along with built-in MIDI drum patterns called Grooves.
Combining the ideas from BFD with powerful built-in mixing, effects and pattern editing, BFD2 represented a quantum leap over its predecessor. BFD2's completely rewritten interface and revamped internal engine laid the foundations for BFD3.
