That said, the feature that caught my eye was the one where you can tap in a basic pattern and then SD3 will search its groove library for all the grooves that are similar to the pattern you tapped in. Takes a lot of the hit or miss out of it, especially if I'm working on a song where I have a basic idea of what the feel should be with the kick/snare. I could see myself using that one often.

That search feature has been on EZ drummer for a long time. Nice to see SD3 finally came out. I am looking forward to replacing pieces of live drums that were;t recorded well enough. Looks like SD3 is cutting edge in this area.

Greatly improved interface and workflow overall. A bit strange though that some EZX libraries are getting identified as Superior libraries.

Took me about 28 hours but downloads were slow. I expect that there were many users accessing the server at once. It should be faster now that most of the pre-order users have downloaded.

I turned Time Machine off during the process. I didn't want to back up 183g of installer files that I would be deleteting when done. The Toontrack Product Manager lets you delete the installers once you are done with them bypassing the Trash — nice touch.

No idea what SSD5 will bring to the table — haven't been paying attention. Until this thread, I'd forgotten that I bought it during some sale that Sweetwater had way back. I did see that I was running the SSD4 beta files so I logged in and updated the AU. I'll deal with 5 when it is released.

I could use some help. SD3 has an amazing ability to export the drums to sound files, all in 1 action. But they omitted something. If you agree, it would be nice to see you go to their user forum and ask for this update- The ability to bounce individual files THROUGH the mixer. As it stands now, you can bounce them as separate files PRE mixer, or, as a stereo file, POST mixer. There are some amazing mixing capabilities and pre sets available. But when you individually send out the separated files, you lose all that amazing mixer processing. Thus, toontrack needs to add a 3rd option, that being to export individual drum parts THROUGH the mixer. I have submitted a request at the forum. But the more the merrier right?

Its slightly more refined in Superior. Been working with it for 2 days, some great things, and other things like tracker real drums and converting to MIDI, that I am having trouble with. It is great at tracking audio ti MIDI, amazing, but sending it back to DP , I cant get it to sync. So I am doing crazy work around till i figure it out. Another thing apparently missing from various areas of all toontrack stuff, swing quantize. I am going to get on them for that. Even non jazz stuff can benefit from swing %, even if slight
