In this post I'm going to explain how to install MIDI files into Groove Agent 5. Installing 3rd party files into Groove Agent is quite easy as you'll see. If you have any questions about this or our Groove Agent files, please contact us. Let's get started!
Groove Agent 5 Installation
Finding the Files for Groove Agent
The Groove Agent files are in the "Other MIDI Mappings" folder of your download. The folder ends with "GA4" and work with Groove Agent versions 4 and 5.
If you have the Mega Pack, you need to extract the file "Mega Pack GA4.zip" inside the "Other MIDI Mappings" folder of your download.
Finding your Groove Agent User folder
Open the Groove Agent 5 "Load Panel" by clicking the folder icon as shown in the image below.

After opening the 'Load Panel', please do the following:
1. Select the Browser tab (see below)
2. Open the 'User Content' folder
3. Open the 'MIDI Files' folder
Right click the 'User' folder to see options for opening it with Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. See the image below.
Copy the MIDI files
Copy our GA4 folder into your 'MIDI Files\User' folder. Groove Agent should recognize the new files almost immediately. That's it, super easy!
Add the folder to your 'Favorites'
For faster access, add the folder to your 'favorites'. Select the folder and then click the '+' button shown in the image below. Alternatively, you can add the 'User' folder to your favorites and browse from there.
A Final Note
While these are not "style" sets, you can audition our files and drag them onto the GA pads. The image below shows our Breakbeats pack inside Groove Agent 5.
We've mapped the grooves for Groove Agent as a matter of convenience. This is all part of our ongoing effort to make our loops compatible with as many programs and drum plugins as possible. You can see 3rd party support for each of our products here.
