Ketron SD3 was released along with SD4 in 2008. SD3 differs from its successor in more advanced settings, while SD4 has both a more minimalistic design and simplified programming. SD3 is a music module that will provide an easy workflow, and will welcome the user into a new sound space.

The front part of the device is divided into several sections: at the top there is a display with all the most important information about the selection of banks/effects and editing, the left one is for adjustment of volume/transpose, effects, and the right one is for the choice of voices (piano, organ, guitar, and even synths/pads). The first section is a digital panel for selecting patches, and the second section with buttons is intended for configuring presets and menu navigation.

In a multi-timbral mode, SD4 works with GM-banks (128 patches) which sound quite realistic. There are 4 bank instruments and 32 drums. The first 3 GM-banks offer different voices. A separate 4th bank is derived from GM. Several buttons on the control panel are used to program the presets.

Panel voices can contain up to 3 layers, where each layer represents one sound from the GM bank. In some samples the performance is composed in a similar manner. In addition, two effect processors can be used to make the sound complete: reverb, chorus, distortion, delay and Leslie effect.
