Toontrack introduces Superior Drummer 3

“Superior Drummer 3 is more than just a drum sampler – it’s a bottomless well of creativity.”

Toontrack has announced the details of its latest production software, which it is calling “the future of drum production”.

Entirely redesigned from the ground up, Toontrack Superior Drummer 3 is a complete drum production studio that delivers more than 230GB of raw material plus numerous mix options and highly advanced tools to create endless drum sounds.

Recorded in 11.1 immersive sound at the famous Galaxy Studios in Belgium, and engineered by George Massenburg (audio pioneer, engineer and inventor of the parametric EQ), Drummer 3 will be released worldwide on 12th September.

Promising to be the most advanced drum software in the world, Massenburg said this of the new offering: “Superior Drummer 3 takes music creation to a level of quality, flexibility and authenticity beyond the imagination.”

Features include:

– TRACKER - Arguably the most efficient and accurate audio to MIDI conversion software on the market, Superior Drummer 3’s new integrated Tracker software means replacing or augmenting drums has never been more powerful.

– MIXER - Take control beyond the unthinkable with the Superior Drummer 3 Mixer featuring 35 new low-footprint insert effects. Route, bus, send, saturate, blend and mix – the creative options are endless!

– GROOVES - Build full drum tracks right inside the program. From quickly getting a custom beat going to diving deep into fine-tuning timing and velocity details, Superior Drummer 3 has got you covered with new and improved features for finding, customising and working with MIDI.

– DRUMS - 6 incredible drum kits (Ayotte, Gretsch, Pearl, Premier, Ludwig, Yamaha), plus additional snares, kick and cymbals captured in 11.1 immersive sound at one of the world’s most quiet and ideal sampling locations – Galaxy Studios. Plus, additional electronic drum samples offer numerous possibilities for creative sound design.

“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. To me, this is the definitive tool for percussive sound design,” said Mattias Eklund, Toontrack’s head of sound design.

Superior Drummer 3 will be available as a download from 12th September and can be pre-ordered now from Time+Space and authorised dealers with an SRP of £287.
