Working With Pads

Groove Agent features two different types of pads: instrument pads and pattern pads. Instrument pads are used to trigger samples. Pattern pads trigger MIDI drum patterns or styles.

Instrument and pattern pads have multiple functions and can show various information about the pads. Some pad functions are only available for specific agents. If this is the case, this is clearly stated.

The pad section on the left can show the instrument pads or the pattern pads. To switch between the instrument pads and the pattern pads, click the corresponding button above the pads.
