Read this if you need replacement Eldorado & London Sessions

It’s more in-depth than BFD2, but shares similarities as well, as you’d expect from the same product line. I only upgraded to BFD3 a year ago and I’m pretty comfortable with it now. I was quite content with BFD2 for a long time and avoided upgrading to BFD3 because of the GUI change, but it is without a doubt a superior drum sampler and better experience. I haven’t had this much excitement working with drum samples in a long time.

If you want to continue to use BFD for the foreseeable future and with no further macOS/Windows support for BFD2, then upgrading to BFD3 is the way.

So if I upgrade to 3 I’ll be able to use 1 and 2?

No, you will need to get replacement serials for their expansion equivalents, Eldorado and London Sessions, as is the point of this thread.

As I mentioned before, make sure when you set up a new account with inMusic that you use the same email address as your Fxpansion email. Then you can DM Drew in private here with your Fxpansion serials for BFD 1+2 and your email address.

Yes, absolutely.

They repackaged BFD1 and BFD2 as Eldorado and the London Sessions and if you send your old serial numbers to @BFD_Drew he can give you new serials for the above libraries.


Hi Drew
please send me your email-address, as I was a user of BFD 2 and need serials for BFD Eldorado and London Sessions

Best regards


@WSperner You need to private message Drew here, with your email address and FXpansions serial #'s for BFD 1+2.

If you’re new here, read this post to find out how to gain the proper trust level to send PM’s.

Hi Guys.

I don’t want to make a nuisance of myself, but messaged Drew a couple times with my details and no response. Am I out of date? Should I be e-mailing support or somewhere else?


Deac. x

You could try emailing BFD support. Maybe Drew is busy with the ladies?

I need the London session serial.
Can´t DM because this is the only reason I got an account.
Please DM.

The DM option should appear now for you. I think he is working with his band or something because I’ve been waiting for a few days myself to get a response.

It’s also a bank holiday here in the UK today so most things are closed.


I want access to my BFD1, 2 and SP1 SP2 packs again. I have all the serials. Step one is to create a message, so I can eventually get the option to PM Drew. So this message is just noise, I guess. Been with FxPansion since DR-008.

In addition to step one,make sure you ready some arbitrary number of posts and scroll down them all.
I think that’s actually more important.


Thanks for the reply - You are correct, after scrolling and reading for about 10 minutes, I was able to message him. Now just waiting for the information back from him!

Hopefully, I’ve just found myself in thie same situation… forced to upgrade cos of the daft pop-up and mid project with no sounds!!

So I wrote a PM to Drew 2 days ago with serial numbers etc… and came back to check if there was a reply to the PM - but the thing is (bare with me - the answer is probably staring right at me): I do not know where to find the PM section - meaning, a section which contains all outgoing and incoming PMs. I clicked on my avatar initial thingy and saw a bell icon, an envelope icon and a bust icon, none of which lead me to the PM section - only the posts (like this one), replies to it and some greetings from the discobot when I first joined . So I wonder if the PM was actually sent… should I send it again? Where is the PM section? Thanks for any help.

Your profile has a messages tab.

Like Homer would say… D’oh - I did go there, but had not noticed the sent tab! Need new glasses obviously. Thanks

Hello Drew… Are you still about?

I got disillusioned for a bit and went off doing something else.

However, I’ve still got an album to mix that I need the old BFD drums for but I still don’t have the message link. Can you help at all? Thanks…
