Here's what Steinberg say about the Groove Agent 5:
The new Groove Agent 5 is an impressive drummer —always in time, finds the right feeling immediately and can switch fluently between different styles.
Songwriters will love the brand-new very organic sounding acoustic drum kit including 20 exclusively mixed and produced presets with fitting MIDI grooves. Modern beat producers will go crazy about 30 new electronic kits for EDM, Trap, Future Bass and lots more - created by an international production team by artists like Rawtekk.
All that comes in a new resizable user interface added by fresh sound design features like the decomposing of samples in tonal and noise parts.
New Acoustic Drums
The Kit is one of the greatest and most detailed acoustic drum kits that has ever found its way into Groove Agent. It was recorded in Teldex Studios Berlin with high-class microphones in lots of articulations, such as a snare with a towel on the drum head.
30 New Beat Agent Kits
All new kits are created by top electronic artists like Rawtekk, zKlang and other young and hungry producers. Beat Agent kits now are not only including beat patterns but also samples like basses, small melody parts or noises.
A sound designer's dream: load a sample and separate it easily into the tonal and the noise part. After that you can easily drag and drop each part on pads of Groove Agent and layer your drums.
