Recreating an old drum machine in Groove Agent

If you’re like me, you’ll have old bits of kit gathering dust in the attic that have seen better days and a drum machine is likely to feature somewhere in that collection.  Maybe you have a song or two that were written using that particular machine and nothing else quite seems to fit or sounds quite right.  Recording the sounds is simple, (and for most older machines, there was no multi-sampling at different velocity layers), or you can download pre-recorded samples for some machines from the web, but what do you do with the individual sounds once you have them?  In this video, I look at incorporating some drum machine samples within Cubase’s Media Bay and using them to recreate my old Roland TR505 as a preset in Groove Agent.
