    Help me... i wont to bfd drums
    lewisham_phil
    Actually I'm writing about version 1.5 which you don't have listed.
    This is a much improved (free) update, which is usable for even ordinary Macs: I have a G4 DP 876K 1024Mb Ram, running the samples from a seperate (internal) drive, and they run fine at 24bit with a reasonable buffer size, no reduced layers, although I do need to switch off the interface animation, which is not a problem. These are simply the best drum samples around.

    The sounds are sure almost perfect -All the tools are there to get a realistic sounding drum kit. Only...the manufacturers minimum requirements statement "preferably 786 mB or more" is a bit vague, or should i say a hoax??
    With a 1.25 Ghz GB and 2 GB Ram, running Protools LE with a Digi002 and an external FW harddisk fro the straming audio files, this is what happens:
    recording in 24-bit mode uses too much ressources, you must reduce layers, buffer size, disable Gui essential like meters etc, and in the end you'll get a drum kit that, if you want to record it, sounds like a 70' phasing experiment.
    Got any problems with that? Drop a note at the user forum.
    Hey, these guys don't even have a phone!
