Default bfd lite vs bfd pro

Can someone explain to me some functions/features that are different between BFD Lite and 2? I know the library is bigger. I'm currently recording with BFD Lite for drums sounds only using the Roland PD-7 pads. I don't intend to use any electric cymbals or auxiliary percussion.

I'm interested in knowing what additional editing, sub-mixing, and/or tone control (to name a few) BFD2 is capable of.

I'm actually content with the default drum set that's in BFD-Lite. The Master, Overhead, Room, and trim controls seem to be adequate if you like the drum that is being triggered. So I need someone to twist my arm and let me know why I should go to BFD2.

The samples in the full version are much higher detail with additional articulations and positions - especially on the Hihats.

Go to the fxpansion website and check out bfd2. If it's got some additional features you like, then upgrade.....no arm-twisting necessary.

You can actually download a limited demo of BFD 2 and check it out. It's standalone and you can't use it in any DAW and only has one kit, but it gives you an idea of how the mixer and other features work. It won't affect your BFD lite.
