Big Orchestral Marching Band or B.O.M.B. is the latest expansion pack for BFD 1.5 and BFD2 virtual drummer programs. Who da thunk that the sounds I remember of my high school marching band would ever work so well in today's Rap/HipHop music? B.O.M.B. comes with 36GB of sounds--a large assortment of both orchestral and marching drum hits including four very tonal bass drums that are better than any TR-808 sound for low frequency importance.
There are seven, hard-hitting marching and orchestral snare drums, quad tom-tom racks, hand cymbals, a concert bass drums including a mammoth forty-inch, orchestral chimes (tubular bells), four tympani covering 1 and 1/2 octaves, plus loads of drum corps/marching band and hip-hop street grooves.
I found for playing percussive fills in dense arrangements the Zildjian Hand Cymbals added a special sound that cuts through without being loud. I also like the Yamaha Marching Snare for its high pitch and super short, tight "pop". The Ludwig Concert 40-inch bass drum hit with a hard mallet is huge sounding and excellent for replacing 808 kicks because you can hear the mallet hitting the skin.
An excellent upgrade to your BFD collection, B.O.M.B sells for $199. Go to: www.fxpansion.com/index.php?page=57&tab=167 for more.
