Get Groovy In The USA


Steinberg has announced that Groove Agent 3 is now shipping to resellers in the US though Yamaha Corporation of America. Groove Agent 3 provides new virtual drummer modules, drum kits and a range of other features to provide a complete and unique virtual drumming solution within one VST instrument.
Helge Vogt, Steinberg's Product Manager for VST Instruments, told us, "Groove Agent 3 puts musically complex and ultra-realistic drum tracks just a few clicks away. The simplicity of the user interface conceals the technical complexity behind the new features, making Groove Agent 3 a shining example of advanced technology that's designed for pure fun, for the creative moment and for realizing a dream come true for many musicians – their very own studio drummer that plays a huge number of styles and always does what he's told."
New Groove Agent 3 features include:
  • Special Agent and Percussion Agent: Adding to the Classic Groove Agent of previous versions, the two new modules offer ultra-realistic modelling of a real studio drummer as well as a range of new percussive instruments in a vast range of styles
  • Dual Mode: Any two of the three modules can be combined in a virtual jam session for more dynamics and variability
  • 3 new acoustic kits with an additional assortment of digital drum machines and percussion
  • 42 all-new drum styles: 123 styles total plus hundreds of percussion performances, including the more unusual time signatures
  • Drum Sample Import: Groove Agent 3 can now utilize almost any drum sound for its grooves, beats and fills, with separate samples for dry and ambience for a quick, easy way of creating a virtual drum kit miked up in its own room
  • Alternating Hits: alternates samples to avoid repetition of sounds, ensuring lively, realistic drum rolls and paradiddles
  • Auto Fill: intelligently generates fills to help produce dynamic drum backing tracks for improvisation on other instruments, making Groove Agent 3 ideal for use as a rehearsal and jamming tool
  • A new FX section: a new EQ and compressor, with new presets ready for each drum component and kit.

Groove Agent 3 is priced at $299.99.
