Steinberg launches Groove Agent 4

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 29, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Steinberg has launched Groove Agent 4, the drum workstation that comprises different drum modules each specialized in certain acoustic and electronic drum styles.

Steinberg Groove Agent 4

Together with its additional capabilities to program patterns easily, mix drum tracks, add studio-grade effects and the perfect incorporation with Steinberg’s award-winning Cubase software, Groove Agent 4 is the ideal tool for composers, producers and musicians.

Groove Agent 4 features three drum modules, also known as Agents, which trigger a wealth of grooves and samples. Each Agent offers a set of specialized tools essential to the style of drum production in demand, but Agents can also be combined, giving Groove Agent 4 its unique multi-Agent architecture.

The Acoustic Agent consists of three drum kits: Studio Kit, Rock Kit and Vintage Kit. Each kit includes dedicated controls that adjust the mix of room and overhead microphones, bleeding signals as well as further kit tuning. Armed with a dedicated channel strip sporting EQ, compressor, tape saturation and envelope shaper, the acoustic drum mixer comes with up to 20 microphone channels, six group channels and four aux buses. The Style Player provides over 50 contemporary styles to choose from. Once selected, Groove Agent 4 offers a groove with intros, fills and endings and up to 16 variations of the main part that can seamlessly be blended by complexity and intensity.

The Beat Agent gets down to intricate beat production, boasting over 100 kits quickly accessible via the MediaBay and the Sample Browser as well as a broad scope of editing capabilities available through the Sample Editor. The Drum Classifier detects the different kit components in a loop and allows users to extract, replace and rearrange them. The Vintage and Turntable modes add the sound perceived in early 12-bit drum machines.

The Percussion Agent includes percussion instruments the likes of bongos, shakers, tambourine and congas. Its Style Player combines up to 8 substyles and adjusts the complexity and intensity of each instrument. With more than 20 styles the Percussion Agents covers grooves ranging from disco, funk, pop and R&B to classic percussive standards, such as bolero and bossa nova.

The entire library encompasses over 22,000 samples and more than 3,800 grooves. All drum kits have been recorded in 24-bit resolution while the Acoustic and Percussion Agents also offer 16-bit versions on top.

Additional features highlighted in Groove Agent 4 are the Pattern Editor for easy editing of grooves and the Jam mode that creates backing tracks on the fly. The overall kit mixer provides 29 quality effects and 16 stereo outputs that can be fed directly to any host mixer. In conjunction with Cubase, Groove Agent 4 takes integration to a new level, allowing users to drag and drop samples and MIDI patterns from Cubase onto Groove Agent 4 or drag patterns from Groove Agent 4 back into Cubase. Drum maps from Groove Agent kits are automatically created and pad names are copied to Cubase.

“The fourth iteration of Groove Agent gives us reason to cheer: we’ve been working hard on delivering a multi-role virtual drummer that is matchless,” said Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg. “We are confident that Groove Agent will equally become a rich source of inspiration and creativity for musicians all over the globe.”

Groove Agent 4 features

  • Complete virtual drum workstation including three specialist Agents for drums, beats and percussion — combinable in four slots.
  • Huge library including over 22,000 samples and more than 3,800 grooves and patterns for any contemporary music style.
  • Acoustic Agent virtual drummer with stunningly detailed drum kits for unmatched realism.
  • Beat Agent drum sampler for electronic music production including advanced slice editing and automatic drum hit recognition.
  • Percussion Agent with more than 20 instruments to complete your virtual rhythm section.
  • Full pattern editor for groove editing on the fly.
  • Style Player plays in the desired complexity and intensity, generates auto fills and much more.
  • Jam mode creates immediate backing tracks, including intro, fills and ending.
  • Integrated mixing board with high-end audio effects for flexible control over all aspects of your drum sound.

99Sounds releases The Warehouse free SFX pack

99Sounds has launched The Warehouse, a free collection of 116 sound effects and organic percussion sounds created by Richard Gould.

99Sounds The Warehouse

The Warehouse is a sample instrument containing a range of SFX elements recorded in a military storage facility in the United Kingdom. It includes wooden, metallic and glass elements. Many of the sounds were captured within the natural ambience of the facility. The sounds can easily be used as percussion elements as well as straight sound effects.

Creaking doors, rattling chains, spooky metallic echoes and glass scraping sounds are the sort of stuff you’ll find in The Warehouse. These samples can be used as scary sound effects, however most of them will also work very well as organic percussive sounds for layering on top of drum loops. My favorite part of the library are the samples of an electric lift, which almost beg to be used as foley robot sounds in a Transformers style movie.

The sample pack is available as a free download.

Frontline Producer releases Percussion Hits n’ Hats

Frontline Producer has announced the release of Frontline Percussion – Hits n’ Hats, a new collection of 309 percussion loops.

Frontline Producer Percussion Hits n' Hats

Back into Frontline HQ we went, emptied our Percussion Cave and tried to bribe a number of perc players with those toys you get from inside a kinder egg. It worked… Armed with Bongos, Congas, Cowbells and Timbale we headed to the live room and smashed some seriously funky grooves into some really awesome mics.

We’ve worked hard to bring you this percussive fusion of inspiration and the best recording kit money can buy, to kick you into creative mode once more. Our normal Class A Pre’s from Neve, top end mics from Neumann and our favourite Portico thingies were used to make the chain.

Percussion is not about just filling the gap it’s about lifting your track. Choose your parts carefully and you can make or break it. The right hats or congas at the perfect moment can really create magic, We make the grooves you decide where to sprinkle them.

The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £19.95 GBP.
