Groove Agent 3, its virtual drummer. Among the many changes, Groove Agent adds 42 new drum styles and a drum sample import.
Groove Agent includes two new modules — Special Agent and Percussion Agent — that give it more realistic modeling of a real studio drummer as well as a range of new percussive instruments, according to Steinberg. It is also possible to combine any two of the modules in Dual Mode, giving users more dynamics and variability.
To avoid having the drums always sounding the same, Groove Agent 3 includes Alternating Hits, an improved Auto Fill and a new FX section.
Groove Agent 3 is priced at $299.99. Groove Agent 1 and 2 customers can upgrade to the new version for $124.99 and $89.00 respectively.
