It’s not something you could ever do in a studio and although it might be possible I can’t see how it could be done without recording each kit piece individually with a selection of ambient mics.
That could make the kit size about 20 times their current size.
You could always add it as a feature request here but I can’t see how they could do it,
Thanks for this info, I am experimenting now and this seems like it will work.
For context; I am producer, mixing engineer, programmer. I love the flexibility of BFD and appreciate having access to leakage, ambience mics, etc. However, coming from the studio side I’m interested in the drums sounding as final mix processed as possible when they get to my DAW individual tracks.
For me a snare stem from BFD should sound like the entirety of the snare sound (OH, leakage, ambience mics), same with Kick, toms, etc. I’m not so interested the individual outs sounding like an actual drum kit mic’d up. It would be very typical to take a snare sample from the kit and layer it, or even entirely replace the close mic’d snare track with the sample, and that sample would not simply be the close mic but the stereo mix of all mics.
Being able to send the leakage to the direct mic and the ambience mics to a separate aux seems to do the trick.
Using BFD like this give me the best of both worlds; sounding like a processed kit but still able to edit the nuance of the performance.
