BFD Expansions: Jazz Noir -
Expansion Pack for BFD3
The BFD Jazz Noir expansion pack captures a rare, vintage Camco 'Oaklawn' drum kit for BFD3.
Perfect for all genres of jazz, funk, and neo-soul, Camco drums are sought after by players and collectors alike for their clarity of tone and warm sustain. This kit was tuned medium-high and recorded with sticks and brushes. The collection comes with a set of Istanbul cymbals, including a beautiful 24" ride, plus a 1930s Round Badge Gretsch snare drum, offering a low and fat alternative to the Camco kit snare.
Our engineers used an array of high-quality microphones to capture direct and ambient signals for BFD Jazz Noir. The kick drum was recorded dampened and fully open, with an Oktava MK220 inside the drum and Neumann TLM 103 outside the head. Both snares were recorded with wires on and off using an Avantone CK-1 on top and a Rode NT5 condenser mic underneath.
3 SE Electronics microphones were used on the toms, picking up the snare wires for a natural kit sound – or with the option of no wires for a cleaner timbre. This expansion also introduces a new articulation popular in jazz playing – the stickshot.
A set of Istanbul cymbals were recorded using a pair of AKG C451Bs as overheads. Ambient mics include a pair of Golden Age Project R1 (room), an AEA R84 ribbon mic (mono room), as well as a special trash mix channel to add some saturation to your drum tracks.
