No way Brad. Unless you use fake drums in your songs, continue to record yourself playing the drums…It’s much more realistic and….genuine. But if you use fake drums already, by all means, buy your funky Groove-Bot.

Hey, I just realized that you always use fake drums…

Go for the Groove-Machine, Brad!

It’s going to be another sad Christmas in the Kajun house this year.

Played with the demo, read a lot on the user forum site, seems like the implementation is dodgy with most hosts other than Steinberg stuff (Cubase, Nuendo, etc.). Even then, people experience troubling problems. Steinberg is blaming all the problems on all the other companys’ VST implementation. I’ve never seen so many “workarounds” for such a hyped product. I’d save my $$ until version 2 and see what happens then.

Re: Groove Agent Steinberg – Bug Annoucement

2 Serious Bugs still in GA

BUG #!

Importing a General Midi Drum File into Cubase and the using Groove Agent
as your drum module is very frustrating. Groove Agent will not trigger many of the General Midi drum notes assigned to the pattern. GA will play the basic bass drum, snare and hi hats and maybe so cymbal crashes
but forget about any percussion that was in the imported midi drum file. The midi drum parts that are not triggered will appear in the drum and note editors so you have to cut and paste them into another track and assign another drum module to trigger these parts/sounds – very frustrating.

BUG #2

The same goes for midi drum part files generated by GA they will play just fine when the GA is running and recording the part but as soon as you set your track up for GA to play the part back again there will be missing
drum parts that show up in the editors but you will not hear them.


Why Steinberg did not include a few General Midi default kits is a SERIOUS SHORTFALL

for this software. Steinberg has 0 answers or replys to my request for an explanation – I can’t believe

that of all the reviews I have read about GA no one has complained about this problem.
