Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Japanese Taiko Grooves?

Japanese Taiko Grooves is a Groove pack for BFD3, BFD Eco and BFD2.

It is intended to accompany the Japanese Taiko Percussion expansion pack for which it includes high-quality Groove and Fill patterns. These become available in your Groove browser after installation.


Why is it necessary to use it in conjunction with the Japanese Taiko Percussion expansion pack?

While this is not technically a compulsory requirement, the included Grooves may not translate well to other drumkit or percussion sounds. Therefore, while it is possible to use the included Grooves with any sounds in the BFD library, it is important to remember that they are designed specifically for the sounds in the Japanese Taiko Percussion expansion.
