Nothing Beats Groove Agent 5

 

Steinberg’s major update for its Groove Agent drum studio software offers a wide range of percussive sounds and grooves, with HiDPI support and a new and unique sound design tool for even more drum sample control.

 

 

HAMBURG, Germany — Steinberg today announced the release of Groove Agent 5, the drum workstation that comprises different drum modules, each specialized in acoustic and electronic drum styles.

 

Featuring three drum modules, also known as Agents, Groove Agent offers a wide scope of specialized tools essential to in-demand styles of drum production.

 

In version 5, the Acoustic Agent has been equipped with a new drum kit simply referred to as The Kit. Its samples were recorded at the Teldex Studios in Berlin, covering as many articulations as possible with high-end studio equipment.

 

Created by electronic artists the likes of Rawtekk/Noise Design, Joe Ford, Billain, Audeka, Current Value and zKlang, the Beat Agent has also received 30 exciting additions, now including not only beat patterns but also bass lines and other melodic parts or noises.

 

The graphical user interface of Groove Agent is now scalable to fit the real estate of any display, while supporting high-resolution HiDPI for more detail than ever before.

 

The Decompose feature was introduced to decompose samples into their tonal and noise parts which can then be easily layered onto the pads. Samples can now be recorded live directly in Groove Agent.

 

“Groove Agent 5 is a remarkable update including a ton of drums sounds for virtually every music style,” said Florian Haack, senior marketing manager at Steinberg. “With its fifth iteration, Groove Agent will continue to be a rich source of inspiration and creativity for musicians all over the world.”

Groove Agent 5 is available from resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop at the suggested retail price of US $179.99. Updates are also available from Groove Agent 4 at US $99.99 and Groove Agent version 2 and 3 for US $119.99.
