Drums

Over 230GB of top-shelf drum samples

Award-winning engineer George Massenburg recorded the sounds in Superior Drummer 3 at Galaxy Studios in Belgium. He utilized Galaxy Hall (the studio’s main multi-purpose room), which is renowned for its near-perfect acoustics. Over 230GB of raw, unprocessed sounds were captured with 11 surround microphones for playback in stereo and up to 11.1 surround. Massenburg used nothing but world-class gear, including mics from Neumann, Sennheiser, Ehrlund, Beyerdynamic, AEA, Sanken, and Schoeps.

Grooves

Mix, match, change, and rearrange

Superior Drummer 3 makes finding the right groove easy. Search and browse using the integrated browser, or use the Tap2Find function to match the rhythm that’s in your head. From there you can dive in and fine-tune timing, velocity detail, and more with the built-in grid editor. You can even build and arrange full drum tracks without leaving the program!

Mixer

Route, bus, send, saturate, and blend

The mixer in Superior Drummer 3 is loaded with 35 studio-quality insert effects, so you can process your drums before they hit your DAW. Create groups, buses, routing, and sends exactly like you would with a hardware mixer. A wide variety of presets are available for all included kits, and you have complete control over mic bleed and more. You can even save your own custom instruments, including third-party samples and drum stacks.

Tracker

A new breed of audio-to-MIDI conversion

Drum replacement is a staple of modern studio production, and Superior Drummer 3’s offline audio-to-MIDI conversion is one of the most powerful we’ve seen here at Sweetwater. Its advanced instrument recognition neural network detects hits with unparalleled accuracy. In fact, when Toontrack demoed the software for us, they were able to extract viable MIDI information from a single stereo drum track. Enjoy seamless SD3 integration, along with MIDI tempo and time map export. You also get single-instrument MIDI export and drag-and-drop functionality.

George Massenburg

World-class drums recorded by a studio legend

The drum sounds in Superior Drummer 3 were engineered by legendary recording engineer George Massenburg (Earth, Wind & Fire; Lyle Lovett; Little Feat; Linda Ronstadt). Besides being the inventor of the parametric equalizer, George has produced, mixed, and engineered over 400 albums, received countless industry awards, been inducted into the TECnology Hall of Fame, and received an honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College. George’s painstakingly thorough approach to his projects is evident in everything he touches, and SD3 is no exception.
