BFD Expansions Sound Lists

Good day I was wondering if anyone could direct me to where can I find lists of sounds in an expansion before purchasing them? Thanks.

Sadly you don’t get to audition individual hits from each kit piece like you used to, that was a long time ago and something I was really sad to see go.
You get demo’s of the full kit and some info as to what kit pieces are in each expansion and how they were recorded.


@Sajin7 This is not as complete as you’re probably looking for, but there’s a set of slighly more detailed FAQs on the Akai Pro support site (I know, why would you think of looking there?).

Here’s an example of one, for Maple Custom Absolute:

It gives listings of the kit pieces, mics etc. For the larger expansions like London Sessions, it doesn’t go into the same level of detail on individual pieces, but it’s a bit more helpful than the product page

Additionally, there are very detailed reviews by Benoni studio, going through each kit sound

The Benoni site also has links to the reviews on YouTube

Good to know thanks. I think I previously would just find the expansion info on the FXpansion website. I think it might be a good idea for the bfddrums site to have these Akai links either on the individual products page, or one page with all the links for quick referencing.
