About Superior Drummer 3

Building on the legacy of its predecessor, Superior Drummer 3 was redesigned from the ground up to introduce a completely new and improved workflow, integrated drum audio to MIDI conversion, 35 mixer effects, scalable interface, detachable windows, a comprehensive MIDI library, an all-new core sound library recorded by George Massenburg and much, much more.

“Both in terms of sound, design and functionality, this is by far the most advanced and profound product we’ve ever developed. Our team has gone above and beyond to make something very complex an ease for the end user to work with. It feels great to finally share with the world what we have spent years developing,” said Erik Phersson, Toontrack’s Head of Development.

Superior Drummer 3 is available as a ‘Regular’ version for first-time buyers, an ‘Upgrade’ for owners of the previous version as well as a ‘Crossgrade’ for owners of EZdrummer 2.
