unfortunatly, without any trial, difficult to tell if it will be as good as i expect from it.
last library featuring simon phillips was by best service and it was not very good !
i unfortunatly bought the loop loft SP loop library few days before the release of the steinberg one .
my main issue is, if i cross the path to buy it, as i have Groove agent SE in Cubase 8 Pro only, will i loose lot of features ? which ones ?
can’t update to Groove agent 4 to use only one library… and anyway, i don’t and never used it ! i’m using other drums software, so i’ll use it only for the simon phillips one.
if i must buy the whole Groove agent 4 VST instrument to have access to the features of the library, well, the price is then, completly different .
so any comment about the library, quality, and what i’ll loose by using it with GA 4 SE would be very welcome !
Are the groove well recorded ? (don’t know if it has been done with a V drums or with Midi trigger on SP real kit).
i would like to know as well if the kit feature any mix (from simon ??) or if the kit is loaded with no mix at all and we must mix it ourselves ?
with the GA SE version will i loose any number of grooves as well ?
well, from what i see, there are lot of stuff missing in the grooves i’m afraid if we have only SE. 16 grooves available … … with 2 intro , 2 ending, 4 fills, and 8 grooves.
so if we have Groove agent, there are 32 patterns, not 16…
it’s pretty unfortunate that to have all the grooves, we’re forced to buy groove agent complete edition, even if we buy the expension at full price … i didn’t see this written anywhere on the library page.
because of that, i can’t buy it actually , paying so much for one library (i have absolutly no use of groove agent, i use an another drum library) …
very unfortunate …
the sound kick ass, i’m a fan of toto and simon phillips and the Midi Grooves (for me it’s the more important as, with audio groove unfortunatly we can’t change anything, even with a multi track library) and the sampling is very very very good ! i’m very impressed and unfortunatly a bit sad ! 250 euros for one drum kit …
All of the Simon Phillips grooves are available in Groove Agent SE as well with the Style Player. The only difference is in the initial mapping on the pattern pads. Since the SE version is limited to 16 pattern pads you can only have 16 patterns mapped at the same time. But all of the intros and fills can be loaded on one of the 16 pattern pads.
