    Basically, Superior Drummer 3 is EZdrummer 2 on steroids. Everything you do in EZd2 can be made in SD3, and the similar functions look pretty much the same. The idea behind the design of SD3 is that EZd2 users should be able to start using SD3 without having to learn a lot of new stuff, when using the same functions as EZd2 has (Tap2Find, Edit Play Style, searching for Grooves, changing libraries/presets, changing instruments, etc).

    It’s not until you want to do more advanced stuff in SD3 you have to learn new things, such as mixing, routing microphones, stacking sounds, changing MIDI mappings, etc.

    i have many ezx packs but my conclusion is that the sounds (in the demos) are better with superior drummer  3 (more natural sounding)

    i can be a little disappointed if i have to change my software to a new one to be satisfied with

    when i saw the big mixer in superior drummer 3 it was scary lol

     

    with ez2 i just change the volume (of each parts), the OH! and the reverb or ambiance

    You can achieve the same thing in SD3. If you open an EZX and chose only to show the buses in the mixer, these will be the same as the level faders you see in EZdrummer 2 🙂 You can get more advanced if you want to, by showing the individual microphone and output channels, but that’s optional!

    An EZX preset will use the same effects in EZdrummer 2 as in Superior Drummer 3, so when you load a preset they will sound the same in both products. The difference is that you can change the mixer in SD3, and add more effects.

    The sound will be better when you get SDXs, since they have more samples per articulation, more articulations, and the audio has a higher sample frequency, etc.

    If you crossgrade to SD3 from EZdrummer 2, you do not lose your EZdrummer 2 license. You can still use both products on your system.

    Well, SD3 can produce “better” sounding drums for sure, since you can do more things there! But you should listen to demos of SD3, and for different SDX:s, and watch some Youtube movies where people are using SD3 to see what it looks like, and how it can sound.

    i have seen many videos and yes it sounds good and natural for the snares

    about the SDD3, everything from rock to metal sounds good

    maybe  the packs are useless if the original sdd3 has all what we need for rock-metal

     

    and i have listened to many ezx packs too : i know them very well now

    to find the best ones for a natural sounding

    for me the best are: uk pop, ezd2 (great), alt-rock, metalheads, nashville, rock

    “seventies rock “too but it sounds a little bit darker

    but what i would like to find is a snare like in the videos

    or maybe, just a look at the mix (reverb – oh- ambience, comp) would be enough

    Will the Crossgarde (EZD2 to SD3) be on promotion anytime soon?

     

    I have bad feeling the promotion period has already been.

    now, there is just a crossgrade and it costs a lot of money

    i think  a better price to go to  sd 3 would be good for people who have ez 1+ ezd2 and a lot of EZZ

    I just want to get this straight. I got EZD not too long ago, along with the Metal Machine expansion.
    If I were to upgrade to SD3, can I still use that particular expansion? It really fits for the project I am currently working with.

    Thanks,

    Hi anderberg,

    EZX:s can be used with SD3, so no problem.

    Excellent! And if I understood it correctly, you can also customize the keyboard layout with SD3 (Which is not possible in EZ2)? I have a Akai MPK225 solely for drum programming.

    Hi guys.

    Do you know if SD3 can access the ‘already treated’ kits from my EZd 2?

    Cheers in advance 😉
