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). Mio Maps Europe 2011. 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. As an extra content, fxpansion provided 6 instruments under Percussion Pieces. These are actually the same 6 instruments that were provided in the BFD Percussion Expansion Pack. These 6 instruments have also been converted and posted here.
For me, one of the most frustrating thing about all BFD versions is that for any instrument outside a drum kit, you will have to go to the details of the instrument or sometimes (like the Taiko expansion kit) you have to go to the manual to see what hit each one presents. BFD just lists them using the general terms they use (like Alt, Drag, Flam, etc.). So what I did here is that I got the name of the hits from their instrument file and put the real name of the hit so that you can see the description of each type of hit. As an example if you look at the above screenshot, you will see the actual name of the 5 different hits of the Carroll Sound Tambourine: Center Hit, Thumb Roll, Single Shake, Edge with Fingers, Muted Hit. In BFD3 (and previous versions as well), you will see them as: Hit, Drag, Flam, Rim, SS. Fun Fact: in the BFD Expansion Pack, the manufacturer of the Cabasa was LP. Here it is Carroll Sound.
