What do I need in order to use this product?

The sounds require a licensed software installation of BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2. The cymbal/hihat kit-pieces are available within your software after installation and authorization.

Back To Top
Can I use this product with BFD 1.x?

No - this expansion can only be used with BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2 (versions 2.1 or later only). BFD 2.1 is a free update to all registered BFD2 users.

Back To Top
Why does it have these requirements?

BFD3, BFD Eco and BFD2.1 (and later versions) are equipped to handle the data format and custom channel layout featured in this expansion; previous versions of BFD2 and BFD 1.x cannot.

What kind of limitations exist when using this product with BFD Eco?

When using this expansion in BFD Eco, limitations apply in terms of the audio channels and articulations that are available (this is one of BFD Eco's limitations, as opposed to the fully-featured BFD3 or BFD2).

BFD Eco is a streamlined instrument based on the BFD2 engine.

How is this product related to previous Gen16-branded packs?

Zildjian Digital Vault combines Gen16 Z-Pack1, S-Pack1 and S-Pack2 with some minor differences:

  • The BFD Eco DV software is not included - the sounds are intended to be used within BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2.
  • The audio backing tracks from Z-Pack1 are not included.
  • It is available only by download - there are no boxed versions.

Are the provided Presets/Kits and Grooves for cymbals only?

No - these files are created for a full drumkit. Kit-pieces from BFD2 and BFD Eco are used for kicks, snares and toms.
