I had posted about seeing/hearing GS3 at NAB in April, but I believe that my report was wrong. I had written here that I had heard SID in 24-bits with GigaPulse, but Synthetic of Tascam told me I had probably heard Larry Seyer's drums. I'm 99% sure that he's right.
Anyway, the Seyer drums were killer. Lots of velocities, and continuous samples from center to edge. I don't know if the hi-hat pedal was sampled that way. The kit sounded okay dry, and sounded absolutely killer through GigaPulse.
I'm sure SID will be available in GS3 - Scarbee has posted a coupl etimes about his other libs being in GS3 - I can just imagine SImone now - locked in Thomas's basement - programming away... hehe - just kidding guys.
If they sound as killer as they do in Kontakt - I'm sure the GS3 version will rock you even harder
