Downloading Products

Step 1: To download Superior Drummer 3, locate  the ‘Register New Product’ button in the top left of the Product Manager. You will then be asked to input the serial number that you will have been given when purchasing SD3.

The Superior Drummer 3 box will enable you to download the VST and standalone versions of the software. The rest are the constituent parts of the sound library.

Step 3: Once the download has finished, simply click the ‘Install’ button. Follow the onscreen instructions and let the program complete the installation.

Note: When installing the Superior Drummer 3 Library Parts you must install these in the correct order (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, Additional Bleed). This is important as the latter parts rely on both the software installation, and PART 1 – BASIC SOUND LIBRARY to work.

Step 6: Once the updates are finished downloading, start the installers and let them finish. The Product Manager will display check marks for each of the completed steps until finally showing a green check mark that reads “Ready to use”, indicating that your product is ready.
