Building on the legacy of its predecessor, Superior Drummer 3 was redesigned from the ground up to introduce a completely new and improved workflow, countless added features and an unequalled amount of raw sound material. With Superior Drummer 3, you are in total control. Welcome to the future of drum production.
► FEATURES – AT A GLANCE
In excess of 230 GB of raw, unprocessed sounds in 44.1 kHz/24 bit
Recorded with an additional eleven separate room microphones set up in a surround configuration for a complete immersive experience
Playback in stereo or up to 11 channel surround systems
Approx. 350 vintage and classic drum machine sounds
New and improved scalable interface with detachable windows
Edit Play Style, Tap2Find, Song Creator and Song Track features as well as improved workflow and search functionality

► A CREATIVE PLAYGROUND WHERE NO RULES APPLY
The idea with Superior Drummer 3 is to let you step into a virtual studio with the best possible raw material and mix options at your disposal to create drum sounds in an environment where only your imagination sets the limits. Combining the creative power of the sounds, the ambiences and the extensive set of features, Superior Drummer 3 is more than just a drum sampler – it’s a bottomless well of creativity. It bridges the gap between acoustic and electronic and lets you venture off into completely new sonic landscapes. This is the definitive tool for percussive sound design.
Release notes for Superior Drummer 3.1.4
Grooves and Search for Instrument could not be used by Windows users with non-ASCII characters in their home directory path (username).
On Windows, “Delete Current Default Project” did not work for users with non-ASCII characters in their home directory path (username).
The default path to user presets and the path to the file containing MIDI library transform settings were wrong for users with non-ASCII characters in their home directory path (username).
CC curves would sometimes be silently ignored in random song blocks.
It no longer crashes if you drag a groove part to a song track that contains two or more blocks and you get a dialog about importing the tempo.
Copying notes, deleting them and pasting should no longer cause a crash.
Starting/stopping playback in a host no longer changes what notes are selected in the grid editor. (Now, that only happens when record is stopped.)
Empty rows in the grid editor were not possible to select.
Deselecting rows in the grid editor (when multiple rows were selected) did not really work.
Notes in the grid editor could leave a pixel trace when moved.
Changing drum selection with the drum selection menu in the Drums tab or with the menu in Edit Play Style didn’t update the selection in a detached Grid Editor.
The property box area got the wrong height when Macro Controls were opened or closed.
It was possible to drag from the Groove Parts view in Grooves tab even when nothing was selected which could also cause a crash.
Clicking the “Clear All Modifiers” button didn’t properly clear the Groove Parts selection.
It no longer crashes if you try to open a Black Box in the mixer.
Macro Controls couldn’t be opened in the Mixer tab.
The Closed Tight value (127) in hi-hat calibration settings got truncated at other scales than 100%.
Certain buttons and texts would in some cases appear at the same time and overlap each other in the MIDI In/E-Drums tab.
Removed the untrue “Favorites will be lost” text in restore database dialogs.
Using ASIO on Windows and setting the buffer size lower than 64, the buffer size was reset to 256 upon next launch.
Using ASIO on Windows and setting the buffer size higher than 2048 caused a crash.
