Each of these specialist tools offers its own approach to drums and rhythms, with special ways of creating your own inspiring beats in a huge range of styles. And the creative potential of each Agent can be combined with any of the others.

Four Agent slots allow you to mix and match your ideal rhythm section. Or combine the Acoustic and Beat Agents to create ultra-modern hybrid beats. This unique feature unleashes myriad opportunities for creating imaginative, inspiring drums whatever your genre.

The Acoustic Agent

The Acoustic Agent is a next-generation virtual acoustic drummer offering not only first-class drum sounds but an integrated player that creates the perfect accompaniment for your songs.

Three outstanding drum kits are included, ready to be played by the Style Player, who can conjure over 50 different grooves in a wealth of genres including blues, punk, hip hop and indie rock perfect for any contemporary music style. And you retain full control, both over intensity and complexity of the Style Players drumming and over the sound, thanks to the full-on mixing board included.

The Beat Agent

Beat Agent is a full beat production instrument with all the tools and sounds to create insane beats for any type of electronic or urban music. 100 amazing-sounding drum kits are included, alongside all the advanced features you need to edit existing ones and create your own. Yet Beat Agent also excels in manipulating samples and loops, with features like automatic loop slicing, one-click drum hit replacement, an onboard FX rack and much, much more. Extras like the Vintage mode and the tightest possible integration with Cubase put Beat Agent at the frontline of modern beat creation and production.

Closest StoreBedford, Nova Scotia
I have a few virtual drum/midi drum VST/sequencer type of programs, the usuals: Toontrack SD, Addictive Drums, BFD....and I was expecting a somewhat lightweight take on this realm by Steinberg, but it has now become my goto drumming software for everything. Like most modern software, you must spend some time messing with it to unlock the real power and monster beats buried within. 4 different engines/agents feeding off of each other at once. Almost makes me want to try Steinberg's Cubase now, and that's a real crazy leap for me to hear myself saying that. Only negative I can think of is the small program window. Why no window resize Steinberg ? Why ? This is a dope program from any angle.
