Superior Drummer 3 Announced!

On Toontrack's FB page, there is a short video with a drums playing and a big 3 (in blue).  
 
Announcement is going to be on August 15th (3 days away...get it?).
 
I can't guarantee it's Superior Drummer 3 but it sure looks like that's what it will be.
 
EDIT:  See link below for announcement.

Crap, I just spent my extra money on Izotope's Neutron.  I might have to suffer and wait all the way until next month's payday!

I put some money away for SD3 about a year ago. Glad to say the fund is intact and I'm ready to go. Toontrack has been quiet for a few months with only midi and EZ Mix packs released all year. That and a few sales on SD2 says SD3. Hopefully.
Hope a new EZ Player Pro comes out at the same time.

I never joined the "where's SD3" chorus because I can't imagine what SD2 might be missing.
 
About the only thing on my wishlist is the ability to customize the mixer window so I don't have to scroll past all those unused channels, but I wouldn't pay a hundred bucks for that. More effects, maybe? Nah, I always route instruments to separate audio tracks, so I've got all the effects I need. More canned MIDI? Nope, never use what's already there. A sizeable UI would be nice, I guess.

Sizable UI is what I have been wanting for years. It's too small for my eyes as is.

It would have to be something special to tempt me as I'm pretty much covered for drums with what I already have. Hardly use SD2 now tbh.

Many a time when I find EZD2 kits to be "too processed" I will use the Song arranger in EZD2 copy the MIDI to a SD2 MIDI track, edit to taste and use a more appropriate drum kit in SD2 with multiple outs for further processing the way I like.

I just prefer BFD3 though I am a bit of a sucker for a flashier UI like AD 1 & 2 has.

I am pretty much with you on most of that but as I do use MIDI a search function as in EZ Drummer 2 would be worthwhile addition.
 
I have been getting more into the groove editor of BFD3 as it provides a really useful way of working with different articulations that is easier than using drum maps in Sonar, so something along those lines would be useful. I also really like the way BFD3's map gets transferred automatically to PRV in Sonar, that would be a useful addition.
 
I hope they do not go down the same route as they did with EZD 2 and it will be possible to have both SD2 and 3 installed at the same time.
 
Upgrade price will be crucial.

As myolpal says, that's what makes a horse race.
 
I've used BFD3 a number of times, but I still haven't entirely warmed up to its UI yet.
 
AD1/2 is nice. Still not my fav UI though.
 
EZD/EZD2 is bar far the most used since it was the first drumpler I bought after dismal results from Cake's Session Drummer, so year the UI is like being at home on a rainy day next to warm fire.
 
I like SD2 but I miss the look of a kit with colors etc. The kits are straight up usable.
 
Lately SSD4 is getting some damn nice sounds for me. What I do not like is how once you chose a "kit" there is no way to know what that kit was. Unless, I'm just crazy and can't see/find it.
 
Jamstix? I'm too much of a dolt to figure that one out.
 
Platinum Samples' Accdent is nice but they are soooooo damned slow to add to it. The recent 3rd party addition was way too overpriced to even be considered.
 
Komplete Ultimate 11 kits? Too much work to get multi-outs IMO, even though I did get them to work once or twice.

I'm waiting for brushes and mallets @ 50% off. If SDXs go on sale at the same time SD3 is released at an introductory price, I'll just have to go sell some blood.

You're right it's not really missing anything essential.  Although a few new goodies might be welcome.  A better UI, an auto drum fill feature, a tap 2 find search (like in EZ Drummer 2), and maybe a quicker load time?  Otherwise, I find that SD2 does exactly what I need it to do and sounds great doing it.
But that's still not going to stop me from buying SD3...just because it's there and it's new.
