    as much as I've spent on EZD and Superior - this is not an incentive for me to buy S9 (or whatever it's going to be called).  I already have good drum programs.

    I did tell them to update the drum programme.

    No need to thank me. It's my job to help Cakewalk go in the right direction.

    Now about a bass programme............

    I was pretty dissapointed with SD 2, so I bought Steven Slate Drums 3.0 and I doubt i'll ever go back to SD.

    Both Session Drummer 1 & Session Drummer 2 were miles away from the really pro drum modules (eg BFD, BFD2, Addictive Drums etc) so I'm not expecting much from Session Drummer 3. But you never know, perhaps Cakewalk will surprise us all ;)


    IMHO, you have to have a death wish to compete with the major drum samplers right now.  Either that or you are the eternal optimist. 

    Even one the Platinum Samples libraries is already being ported to Superior 2 SDX format.

    Cakewalk could just buy Mixosaurus and be done with it. That would be a lot of DVD's though! Ofcourse the DAW packages out there really should not have to give everybody a slew of pro VI's just to compete!

    I agree with Mod Bod. Why bother? The major league players have the scene locked down. I've always been disgusted and even a bit insulted by Session Drummer, even in v8 the sounds are horrid. Just my opinion. Sonar needs to work on better PR and publicity. Every article I read about plug-ins are VSTis, they never (ok, rarely) mention Sonar.

    This will only be a great addition if it integrates even better with SONAR.  And really that means: Drum Maps.  They suck, and need help.

    They had also better hope SD3 allows free assigning of samples to pads and can edit easier than hacking a SFZ file. Otherwise they're just walking into a fist of EZD.

    This is once again an example of CW wasting time on something that almost no one needs or uses instead of addressing existing concerns.

    ...Mickey Mouse VSTi's instead of core program stability and functionality...

    Well Im no drummer....I owned a set for a lil while.... But not long enough to get good...Had to get rid of em to pay attorney fees.  Anyways I have no drums, cant afford drums, and have no room to put drums if i owned em.  So I depend on Sonar Session Drummer for my drumming.  So I must say I'm glad that they attempted to upgrade their Drums.  The only other drum program that I ever mess with was Redrum from Reason, which I liked..... however  when I bought Reason, I assumed it recorded Audio.  Yep, I was wronged.  Thats another story..... I f anything I hope Sonar updates/upgrade the sequencer as well.

    Gentlemen, Puh-leeze...

    I was merely announcing the laterst "Tweet" feature...I didn't intend to suggest that it was a reason to upgrade if one already has excellent drum programs...But for those who don't, it might be some incentive if a few other new features are attractive enough...

    IMO Session Drummer 2 was already better than EZDrummer, so SD3 can only hopefully be better yet.  It's the first thing so far that I'm looking forward too in the upgrade.

    I agree with Mod Bod. Why bother?

     
    I'd have a guess that the principle market is in the Studio/Guitar Tracks market.
    The product would be quite well placed there I think.
     
    Why not dribble it up to the higher software? Always useful to have something
    there, even if it is somewhat limited compared to the biggies. I've used it, every now
    and again. Nicer to play along to than a click track.

    A couple thoughts for those unhappy about this:

    1. Don't assume the same programmers are responsible for plugins and core Sonar functionality. If they didn't include new plugs, it doesn't automatically mean more people would be working on the core program.

    2. Even though I, like many others here, already have tons of VST's/VSTi's and don't really have much need for more (unless they're really special), new users might find them attractive.

    Having said that, I'd agree that there are already many great drum VSTi's out there, and Cakewalk might be better off making a deal to bundle one of those...

    I can't get into details (sorry) but please keep in mind some features are going to be more attractive to existing customers and some are going to be more attractive to new customers.

    In addition, in regards to SD3 if you like and use SD2 you will be pretty excited about SD3. Of course if you use something else already you may find it less interesting. We do try to keep as many types of users happy as possible.

    Not trying to start a flame war but just something to keep in mind.

    And I sincerely appreciate your report since I have no intentions of signing up for twitter just for sonar updates.  I merely took your report and made a statement that I also have no real interest in Session Drummer 3 as an incentive to upgrade since I've already spent money on one of the "big ones"

    I use SD2 all the time with Steven Slate samples. There was a blurb a while back from Slate about an advancement with Sonar/SD and Slate Samples. They wouldn't elaborate, so maybe SD3 will be delivered with some decent samples. I would really like to have a room setting in SD. That would get my attention. Attention=$$$  :>)

    I had planned to buy Jamstix when I upgrade from Sonar 3 to Sonar 9. I wonder if Session Drummer 3 with have similar functionality to Jamstix.

    I doubt it will be like jamstix

    Great programme is jamstix - if you buy jamstix 2, you get jamstix 3 free when it arrives.

    This is probably the most uninteresting news to me yet. Though, mostly because I hate Session Drummer 2. That being said though, SD2 mostly gets on my nerves for its limitations. So...

    Pretty cool news to anyone that uses SD2 though, I'm sure.

     Hi All, With the music I was making when SD2 came out, like a few others, it didn't do much for me BUT...
    I built a song which had a big band feel ( Bright side of the Street - Van Morrison ) as a backing track for a pro act. Wow! It worked perfectly and I've got a lot of work just from that drum set in SD2 - they were convinced I had miked up a big kit.
    I am really looking forward to SD3  cos SD2 just sounds so real when USED IN CONTEXT.
