Amped Elektra, A rare vintage electric piano which has been completely restored by the manufacturer, sampled from the DI signal and reamped through three legendary amps like “The Tower” from 1949, a Fender Twin and Ampeg V4. If that was not enough classic gear, we have also included unique impulse responses from different reverb units through the decades. Now that’s what we call a character instrument.

Backbone, One of the most innovative plug-ins for drum sound design and re-synthesis. Layer, resynthesize and decompose samples into noise and tonal parts. Thanks to many unique features and superior workflows, you can make 808s fatter than ever, design cinematic hits, and craft your own signature drum sounds.

Electric Bass, This awesome electric bass library is based on samples and combines them with advanced physical modeling. This new concept allows you to create the sound of classics in no time at all, from J-bass to Pbass and even the MM-bass. It comes with seven articulations from fingerstyle and muted to slapped and an authentic auto legato and slide function.

Polarities for Padshop 2, The Padshop 2 expansion Polarities plays with the concept of contrasts and confrontation, like divine and evil, tonal and noisy, frozen and moving. You can morph the sounds or split polarized sounds on the keyboard. It’s another great expansion by sound designer Simon Stockhausen.

Sounds of Soul for Retrologue 2 , This Retrologue expansion covers the greatest synth sounds from more than four decades of soul music. More than 400 presets programmed by Dave Polich, who programmed and produced for artists like Michael Jackson, David Foster and Sergio Mendes.

Future Past Perfect for Groove Agent 5, Future Past Perfect is the perfect drum toolkit for music in the style of New York House, Future House, Progressive House and Techno. This expansion is exclusively created for Groove Agent by producer, DJ and composer Dean Coleman, who moves crowds in global hot spots from Brazil, Paris and Ibiza to New York.
