BFD3 Library Kit 2 & 3
Всем известно, что использование BFD 3 требует слишком большого количества RAM. В данной библиотеке для Kontakt файлы BFD3 преобразованы в отдельные файлы WAV. Теперь, чтобы не перенапрягать компьютер, были преобразованы посылы на микрофоны, что минимизировало число голосов, используемых при игре и высвобрдило память и пространство.
I have read about a lot of complaints from posters about BFD3 use of too much RAM. That they have to resort to recording each instrument separately because it was killing the DAW.
Personally, I like to use Kontakt, but I could never find an excellent library for drums. The Native instruments libraries sound constipated, the Vir2 one is buggy and others are not flexible enough. So I thought, maybe I can convert the BFD3 kits to be used in Kontakt. I am a developer in real life, so I created my own program to convert the WAV files used by BFD3 to be used in Kontakt. BFD3 uses multi channel wav files (Kit2 for example use 16 channels) in order to send sounds to different Mics. Kontakt on the other hand can only accept up to 2 channels (i.e. stereo files). So the program I created parsed the BFD3 files and converted them into separate WAV files. Now, in order to not overtax the machine, I opted to mix all Direct mics into one Mic (i.e. Kick in, Kick out, Snare Top, Snare Bottom and Direct Mics) for 2 reasons. One: Minimize the number of voices used when playing a note (so, for example, Kit 1 uses 14 channels (stereo for Overhead, stereo for Room, 5 mono channels for Amb and 5 for Direct). So basically if I wanted to convert the files as is, each time you play a note in Direct, it will use 12 voices. The second reason is memory and space. So instead of having 12 wave files, I have 4 files.
Kit 3 follows the same structure as Kits 1 & 4. As for Kit 2, each sample provided by fxpansion consists of 16 channels. Which means for the Mic I called Room Far, we have both stereo (2 channels) and mono (5 channels).
When converting this Kit, I had 4 options, 3 of them would not require any script changes:
Option 1: Provide only the mono channels for Room Far
Option 2: Provide only the stereo channels for Room Far
Option 3: Mix the stereo channel with the 5 mono channels (i.e convert the 5 mono channels into stereo and mix them with the stereo samples) . Option 4: Change the script and provide an extra mic (I called it Amb Mono) and use the stereo channels for the Room Far and the mono ones for the new mic.
To provide the best results, one would choose Option 4 and that's what I did. So I modified both my program used for converting the BFD3 samples into multi files and the Kontakt script to support a fifth Mic.
I have also added one small feature which I hope would help those who like to route Mics to different output channels.
As you can see from my screenshot, there is now a drop down at the bottom of each Mic. By default it is Master. This will allow you to route each Mic to different output channels. One very important note to those who already changed the routing for each Mic using the instrument edit and Bus Output. If you already created a project in your DAW and used multi routing for any of the instruments in previous kits: After you overwrite your old NKR file with the new one, the first time you open this project, you need to set the output of each Mic from the interface to the one you chose previously. You only need to do this once; after that, your choice will be saved. Same thing if you used Kontakt as a stand-alone and saved the instrument after you changed the routing of one or more buses.ВНИМАНИЕ!!! Перед скачиванием больших, разбитых на части архивов
