Is Groove Agent SE that comes with some versions of Cubase, available for use with other DAWs once installed?

GA SE 5 works well in REAPER but content is missing. Do I have to install Cubase LE in order to get the content?

Yeah. I think, just like Halion Sonic SE, GA SE doesn't come with any content, when you install it with the single installer.

Best do it like this: Install Cubase LE, then install Groove Agent SE with the single installer, and then uninstall Cubase LE. Although the order shouldn't matter, as the content isn't uninstalled when you uninstall Cubase LE.

I think the only way to uninstall the content is through the Steinberg Library Manager anyway.

Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Nevermind, figured it out.

The content should be available in Steinberg Download Assistant as a separate download

It also can act as a sampler. Read the manual ;)
Mostly: Bitwig Studio 4, Cubase Pro 11, Live 11 Standard, RP Explorer 6, NI K12, Arturia VC7 + SQ80 V, Keylab 49 MK ii, MODX 6, KK M32 and ATOM on both M1 Air MacBook and Ryzen 5800X PC

For an SE/Lite version of a product, this plugin is really powerful, I'm impressed

I have the Pro and find it super nice gift that we can use it outside Cubase!
I'm waiting for a discount in the full version of GA that has more features and kits :)

Hi all,

I previously had GA SE 4 with my Cubase pro 9. Installed GA SE 5 through the download manager to use with Reaper also. Install was successful but now neither Reaper nor Cubase can open Groove Agent. Reaper doesn't find it at all, Cubase finds it but can't open it. No dll file seems to be installed... Any ideas? Guess I'll reach out to Steinberg support.

Download the install files directly from Steinberg support download page, not through their download manager.
Here, try from here:

Thanks! I'll try this today :)

EDIT: Didn't work unfortunately. I gave up and downloaded the whole 11GB installation files for Cubase pro 9.5 again and installed GA SE4 from there. At least now my Cubase projects will be back to normal. Guess it's time to buy a decent drum VST, but this whole ordeal has made me wary of the full version of Groove Agent...
