  • Jamming - Jam mode creates immediate backing tracks, including intro, fills and ending — perfect for practice, improvising and sketching ideas.
  • Beat editing - Like a step sequencer for drums, the pattern editor lets you create complex rhythms in perfect timing, simply by clicking in the grid.
  • Live Sampling - Record analog drum synthesizers, acoustic drums or any other audio via Groove Agent, manipulate the sound and build your own kits.
  • Sound Design - Creative effects, layering up to four different kits and features like the new Decompose let you easily create your own signature sound.

FIVE GOOD REASONS TO USE GROOVE AGENT 5

  • The Kit: A new standard of acoustic drums","name":"headline"},{"type":"regular","content":"The Kit brings a new standard of acoustic drums to Groove Agent 5. Recorded in Berlin’s Teldex studios, including its classic reverb chamber, it features over 14 GB of compressed audio, 37,000 samples, 3 different overhead microphone positions and 20 new presets for rock, funk, jazz and much more.
  • Whether it’s heavy-hitting Trap bangers, raw and dusty hip hop drums, breathtaking EDM inspired kits or speaker-ripping Future Bass kits: Groove Agent 5 takes modern productions to the next level. The new kits now also include additional samples like Basses, Brass and melodic loops.
  • Groove Agent combines the creative power of three different rhythm modules: the Acoustic, Beat and Percussion Agents, which can be loaded in four slots. Each Agent can be combined with any of the others for layering and creating your own unique drum sound.
  • All 1,000 MIDI grooves were played by top drummers and mixed by Steinberg’s expert engineers, helping you to easily find the perfect backbone and groove for your song. Every MIDI part can be exported to your DAW of choice or manipulated in Groove Agent’s Style Player.
  • A huge collection of percussive loops and instruments brings you the organic energy of bongos, congas, shakers, chimes, claps and more. Thanks to Perform mode, you can establish a completely new rhythm section, perfect for songwriter backing, funky tunes or creating hybrid styles.

HIGHLIGHTS - A new standard of dynamic acoustic drums; new kits for electronic music; new MIDI grooves; live sampling; Decompose feature for your own signature drum sound; 32 velocity layers; updated and resizable user interface… plus much more!

NEW ACOUSTIC DRUMS IN THE KIT - The Kit brings fantastic new acoustic drum sounds to Groove Agent, including Pearl kick and snare, four Yamaha Maple Custom toms, four cymbals from Zildjian, Istanbul ride and Paiste splash cymbals — all recorded with high-end Neumann microphones and outboard gear in Berlin’s Teldex Studios, including its classic reverb chamber. ‘The Kit’ comes with 47 articulations, five round robins and up to 20 velocities and, most importantly, a sound that is very versatile and can be pushed in any direction in your mix.

MORE THAN 30 NEW KITS FOR EDM, TRAP AND OTHER STYLES - All new kits have been created for Groove Agent 5 by top electronic artists including Rawtekk, Audeka, zKlang, Joe Ford and a number of other young and hungry producers. As well as beat patterns, Beat Agent kits also now include samples like basses, small melody parts, miscellaneous hits and other noises. Further great news is that you can now also use the Style Player for Beat Agent.

EXCITING NEW STYLES FOR SONGWRITERS - Groove Agent 5 features 20 new MIDI Styles for songwriters, including intro, outro, fills and different complexities. They cover a range of genres, including rock, progressive rock, blues rock, alternative rock, indie, funk, soul, jazz, crossover and reggae, with every style played by a top drummer and exclusively mixed for The Kit.

SOUND DESIGN WITH DECOMPOSE - Decompose is a sound designer’s dream! With it you can load a sample and easily separate it into its tonal and noise components. Once you’ve done that, you can easily drag and drop each part onto Groove Agent pads to layer your drums, creating an endless array of possibilities. Just imagine combining a fat 808 kick tone with the noise of a 909 snare. Or an electronic snare with the noise of an acoustic hi-hat.

CHANGE THE PITCH OF SAMPLES - Create new exciting drum sounds with changing the pitch envelope of a sample. This is especially great for EDM music if you want to create drops and build ups or if you want to do pitch adjustments of pre-recorded drums. Combined with the new Decompose you can also modulate the pitch of tone and noise separately – a very unique approach in working with drum sounds.

EVEN MORE NEW FEATURES

Live Sampling - Record any sound that you choose directly to Groove Agent and let your creativity bring genius to your drum tracks! You can sample old records, analog drum synthesizers, instrument loops, acoustic kits… indeed any sound that you can think of. With Groove Agent installed on a laptop, you can record whatever you like, wherever you like and create completely new, unique drum sounds.

Now, with just one click, you can export the mixer settings from Groove Agent to Cubase 10. This new facility means that each drum instrument, like kick or snare, now has its own track in Cubase. It allows you to finalize and finetune the mix, using all your favorite plug-ins, much better than before.

Thanks to the brand-new, resizable and undockable Content Browser, you can filter the content for any single instrument — for example all snares, kicks, etc. — and pre-listen to the sounds, even during the playback of patterns. Once you have found what you are looking for, you can easily drag and drop the sound onto the pads. It makes song creation much faster — and more fun.
