Groove Agent 3
Groove Agent 3 is the third incarnation of Steinberg's phenomenally successful
Groove Agent virtual drummer VST instrument, and is a major step up from previous
versions. Groove Agent 3 combines a huge library of drum and percussion sounds
with a range of player technologies to give you dynamic, ready-to-go drums,
beats, rhythms and percussion in only a few mouse clicks. Top-quality drum
samples and live recorded drum performances in a massive number of variations
cover 123 different styles from over 50 years of music history, automatically
synced to the song tempo. And Groove Agent 3 also features more kits and sounds,
including 3 new top-rate acoustic drum kits, as well as the ability to import
user samples in wav and AIFF format for even more flexibility.
Groove Agent 3 adds two new agents to the Classic Agent seen in previous versions:
Special Agent and Percussion Agent. While the top-notch Special Agent adds
an astoundingly realistic studio drummer complete with new acoustic drum kits
to Groove Agent 3's arsenal, the Percussion Agent is specialized in red-hot
percussive grooves and beats. The new Dual Mode puts any two of the three agents
together in the recording studio for scorching virtual drum and percussion
sessions all within one single VST instrument. And while Groove Agent 3 breathes
new life into any production with its inspiring and inventive drum performances,
it's also an ideal sparring partner for practice or jam sessions.
