BFD Vintage Recording Techniques is an expansion pack for BFD3 that uses a variety of vintage microphone techniques to capture a beautiful Ludwig Classic Maple drum kit.

The result is a selection of familiar, authentic vintage sounds suitable for rock, pop, blues, and more.

Our engineers used world-renowned drum recording techniques including ORTF, Glyn Johns, and Blumlein. Direct microphones were expertly placed on all kit pieces to ensure the pack has a wide range of mixing possibilities and can deliver authentic drum sounds from vintage to modern.

For the ORTF technique, 2 AKG C451B mics were used. This gave a wide stereo image with excellent mono detail that is perfect for jazz tracks.

A technique that has been used on countless rock records, the spaced pair setup featured 2 AKG C414 XLS large-diaphragm condensers, which created a wide stereo image exhibiting a huge palette of sonic colors.

The Blumlein technique used 2 ribbon microphones configured to give an excellent stereo image and a smooth-sounding ambience.

For the Glyn Johns technique, 2 Neumann TLM103's were used for overheads, which when combined with the snare and kick direct channels provide that classic sound.
