Groove Center features preset patterns produced by professional beat makers plus drum sounds for a variety of styles—hip-hop, trap, and house. There are 16 pads and four knobs for fast real-time music production. Sixteen buttons on the outer ring allow users to check current rhythm patterns at a glance. Create powerful rhythms and phrases, plus DSP effects like roll, filter, bit crusher, break, and pitch shifter.
