Steinberg Beat Essentials

Steinberg has announced the release of Beat Essentials, a VST Sound Instrument Set for the Groove Agent drum instrument.

Beat Essentials features new Styles that emphasize four-four grooves and perfectly capture the driving rhythm of beat music originating from the Great Britain of the 1960s.

Available for the Acoustic Agent drum kits of Steinberg’s award-winning Groove Agent 4 drum software and the Groove Agent SE 4 plug-in included in latest versions of Cubase, Beat Essentials boasts ten Styles with different tempi and time signatures, and consists of a wide selection of intros, main grooves, fills and endings.

Matthias Quellmann, Senior Marketing Manager at Steinberg, commented: “Beat Essentials delivers what the name promises: ready-to-use grooves with focus on British beat music that should be part of every library collection.”

Beat Essentials features

  • 10 Beat Styles for the Acoustic Agent drum kits in Groove Agent 4 & Groove Agent SE 4.
  • Each Style is featured in a VST preset and comes with a dedicated mixer setting.
  • Grooves cover different tempi and time signatures and range from basic phrasings to complex syncopations.
  • Each Style includes main parts, intros, endings and fills.
  • An inexhaustible resource for creating backing tracks, inspiring new compositions and improvisation sessions.

Beat Essentials is exclusively available through the Steinberg Online Shop for 24.99 EUR (including German VAT).
