Noob Question FX Expansion BFD2

Can you record guitar and other instruments using BFD2, or do you need another recording program to help do that?

No. It's a plugin -- a VSTi. You need host software. It might run standalone, but that's only to create kits and patterns. It won't record audio for you.

Anything that'll host VSTi's: Logic, Cubase, Sonar, ProTools, Abelton, etc. Pick your poison.

I'd recommend ableton if it's primarily as a vst/i host.

I have Ableton 7 LE now; I'm becoming more familiar with it. The drum kits on it seem sufficient for now, but I'll probably expand and get the BFD2 software in the future. Thanks for the replies.

Okay, I just received BFD2 and have been using it. Its a complex little program, but I think I'll be able to figure things out as I go. What I am having a hard time doing is figuring out how to use Ableton with BFD2. How do you load the drum tracks created in BFD2 into Ableton? I want to record guitar, bass, vocals, etc. and use the BFD2 for the drum parts. I'm a total newbie at this, so any help is appriciated.
