OVERVIEW

Dozens of fresh, up-to the-minute styles and a battery of new drum sounds!

The Steinberg Groove Agent 2 Virtual Drummer offers a raft of the latest drum grooves and styles within the comfortable confines of modern DAW environments. Supports VST, DXi, Rewire, or AU plug-in formats.

27 new styles offer an array of the latest grooves in diverse flavors currently in demand such as ultra-slick R&B, Bristol Trip Hop, Old Skool HipHop, Retro Rock, roof-raising Punk, and grinding Grunge grooves. Providing the kerosene are the 9 new drum kits. The all-new top-quality studio kit offers a highly polished, refined sound that's widely usable for many modern pop and rock productions. Other kit highlights include painstakingly re-created retro drum synths, ultra-hip noisy lo-fi drums, and a diamond-hard metal kit, as well as added percussive sounds.

Other refinements of the Groove Agent 2 drum machine software include added output buses, with up to 8 stereo outputs now available within the virtual mixer of the host application. It's now also possible to bypass the internal sample playback engine and to use Groove Agent as a MIDI player that triggers external samples.

The GUI has also been overhauled, with added scales and easier access to vital controls. The new solo button for every group makes it easier to focus quickly on one group of sounds while tweaking and mixing. The Steinberg Groove Agent 2 also offers a new Save to MIDI file feature, which stores Groove Agent's rhythm output to a MIDI file for detailed editing, regardless of the DAW application hosting Groove Agent 2.

pointless

By stephenlayton

from Australia

This thing is useless and uncontrollable... like a real drummer. I guess that's where they got that analogy from! Just joking... I had hoped to drop it into Logic as a plug-in, select a style and like a drummer, it would do it's thing. Well firstly it doesn't. Then even if you try and run the thing manually, it doesn't play anything like a standard set of patterns that you can build on. ie. 4/4 rock.... variation 1: kick solo, OK.... next variation you'd expect... hi hat?... nope, let's throw in random toms, by the time a basic snare is brought in... which is rare... the drum track is unusable. It doesn't sound like a drummer was ever involved in the making of this... maybe some kids with a drum machine and a blindfold.

Don't buy...

By Chris-6d_Su

from Canada

This product is a waste of money, you select certain age groups for the sound and kits... You don't have enough controll to call anything you make on here your own. This is more like a easy pre-made drum kit... I don't even think you can use it for selling music and "claim" you made the drums since its all pre-done for you.. Not worth your money, your better off with drum sample disks and FL Studio or Cubase.

Steinberg sucks

By dH3xzxel.

from WIlmington, NC

What a scam. Just got this product in the mail today. I cant run it, because it requires you to purchase a "Steinberg Key and USB component connector required ". Sorry, but every piece of software Ive ever purchased comes with a CD key #, Ive never come across anything that required you to purchase additional hardware in order to run it (to prevent copying). Screwing the customer out of 30 more bucks, for fear of losing a few bucks due to piracy. This will be my last Steinberg purchase, and likely my last Musicians Friend purchase. Dont waste your time on this product.pissed in NC
