Steinberg Media Technologies has announced that Groove Agent 3 is now shipping to resellers worldwide. 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.
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
- New acoustic kits with an additional assortment of digital drum machines and percussion
- 42 all-new drum styles: over 120 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 as well as each kit.
Groove Agent 3 is priced at €239.00*. Groove Agent 1 and 2 customers can upgrade to the new version for €129.00* and €89.00* respectively. It is available for Windows and Mac OS X Universal Binary in VST, AU, DX and stand-alone formats.
