Re: Does Fxpansion still provide technical support?

I recently got a reply from support at bfddrums, so they are reading it - albeit rather slowly.

Yeah, I've been on Catalina for a while. I think it's 3.3.1.33. What version does yours say?

I also got a response from them recently. Nothing to report other than that.

Re: Digital distortion playback of sounds in BFD3

My biggest wory would be the RME don't yet have updated drivers for your OS. Oh, they definitely have them for his version. I have an old DigiFace, which is basically the same thing as his RayDat, but with an external box. They're probably the most reliable drivers I've ever had. I haven't run into...

Re: OS update Big Sur & BFD3

I'm holding off for a while, as ProTools and some other software have not yet announced compatibility. For the time being, I can wait.

I sent an email to support at bfddrums dot com last week asking if they had a timeline, but I never got a response of any kind.

Re: How do you turn off BFD3 grooves when composing in DAW??

On the right on top of BFD3 you can find a small box with the option bpm and also: Grv off Track Palette Be sure you select 'Grv off'. Thanks for the reply. Even when the 'Grv Off' the problem persists. It will stop momentary if I press Stop in the BFD3 plugin, but will resume after I make edits. O...

Re: Digital distortion playback of sounds in BFD3

I can't say much specifically about BFD3. However, I have had issues in the past with some interfaces, where I got an awful garbled disortion that sounded like a ring modulator with clipping. IIRC, under Audio & MIDI settings, 'drift correction' used to have to be turned off on my Duet. Or maybe...

Re: BFD2 on Catalina

I would be very surprised if BFD2 were supported on Catalina. There were changes to the MacOS security model, and it took some time for even BFD3 to get support, and that's like 6 years old. Now, if you just want to move the libraries, I can say that definitely works. Mine originally started on BFD1...

Re: Moving BFD3 to a new Mac

You can just move the files over. Although, I'd probably move the libraries, and do a reinstall of the software. I've moved my library many many times without necessarily doing a reinstall. It started out as a BFD1 library on Windows, and is now on the Mac on BFD3. I believe there are a number of in...

It means that there's a groove track included in that set of grooves.

Re: Found BFD3 Bug

Go to Tools->Show MIDI Log, and record all the MIDI events. Take a look to see if there's an event that's causing the pitch shift.

Re: BFD3 - one tom from Andy Johns with no audio

I'm totally fine with loading just that one tom. Have you done a rescan of your content locations?

Also, make sure that something isn't in your mixer that's preventing that signal. Can you load just the one drum into an otherwise completely empty default kit?

Re: BFD3 HAS STOPPED WORKING FOR ME

Is the drive there and otherwise visible?

If so, what happens when you go to Tools/Set Up Content Locations?

Trty Search Drives or Search Folders, and then rescan. If the filesystem can see it, then BFD3 should be able to.

Re: Ambient mic send limitations

Well, if the drum isn't sampled with that ambient mic, then that send won't be available. Not every set has the same mics in the same room in the same position. It's not like Amb3 corresponds with some standardized micing technique. I even have one kit, I think it's a DrumDrops kit, that doesn't hav...

Re: Running BFD3 through Logic Pro 9 or Reason 8...?

It's just a question of using the MIDI key map for your triggers. It's the same process as in BFD2.

You might even be able to re-use the key map you used in BFD2. I think I have some old ones in BFD3 that go way back.
