DemoPacks provide a reduced-detail version of BFD3-compatible expansion packs in order to install and use within your sessions. This allows you to evaluate the sound of a pack within the context of your own projects although it cannot satisfactorily convey the true experience of using the full-detail versions of the Drums with their true timbral variation over the full velocity range. However, it offers many advantages over isolated preview demo MP3s of expansion pack content.
DemoPack content can be used in the same way as any other licensed Drums within BFD3 - however, please be aware that DemoPacks are provided for evaluation purposes only. If you wish to use the sounds in your productions, please purchase the relevant expansion packs which provide the full-detail versions.
