Fxpansion Big Orchestral Marching Band _for Kontakt
Fxpansion Big Orchestral Marching Band for Kontakt | 9.55 GB
The Big Orchestral Marching Band Expansion Pack is a hard to find pack. Fxpansion only offers it as a download. So, the question that will arise: Is it really bad? The simple answer is "No".
Although this expansion pack is advertised as being a BFD2 pack, it was actually released for BFD. When they wanted to release it for BFD2, it seems they were really lazy and the porting of this pack was a straightforward copy of the samples and adding the XML file setting that is used by BFD2.
Before BFD2, all packs use a simple structure for samples: 11 channels per wav file. So, whether they have recorded using Kick in, Kick out, Snare Top and Snare Bottom microphones, the wav file will always have 11 channels. What does that mean? If they have not recorded using the above 4 mics, you will have 4 channels of silence. As of BFD2, they changed this and they have started using XML files for each instrument to indicate what channels have been recorded. So why did I say they were lazy in the porting? Because most of the samples in this pack don't have any of the Kick in, Kick out, Snare Top and Snare Bottom microphones. So when they ported it to BFD2, they just copied the files as is instead of stripping out the empty channels and create an XML file to indicate which channels are used. So to give an example: The Chimes samples are 8 GBs. But guess what, because of the these 4 empty channels, you have 3GBs of silence. So just extracting the proper channels into seprate wav files reduced the Chimes samples to 5 GBs (and this is before compressing to ncw. After compressing total size of samples become 2.53 GB).
Another reason also is that this pack has 2 pitched instruments: Timpani and Chimes (or Tubular Bells). Now since BFD/BFD2/BFD3 are more of a drums VSTI, the only way to load such pitched instruments is to load each note into a separate instrument. So for example, if you wanted to load all the notes of the Chimes, you have to load them in 20 different instruments. This will more than likely discourage you from using these pitched instruments in this pack. I know I would be discouraged.
Having said all of this, the sounds in this pack, IMHO, are great. And the instruments included are completely different from other expansion packs.
