Sometimes it's the little things that can make all the difference, a little shaker here, a little dash of Tamborine there, can fill in your percussion and bring energy and fullness to your track. UJAM is great at making these "little seasoning" tools, as we like to call them, and the Groovemate One is one of our favorites for more laid-back tunes that need a little something-something.

What is that missing ingredient? It's probably percussion.

So you've made some progress on your track, you've got bass and drums, melodies and chords, and still, there's something missing. Why does it still lack vibe and swing? Percussion! Think of salt as a spice – working dutifully in the background, a little bitter when consumed in masses. But no dish will come to full expression of flavors without it. Same goes for electronic music and percussion.

Features at a Glance

Pick a Preset - Create your music without overthinking! Pick any inspiring preset and get to work instantly.

In Sync - Trigger patterns that are instantly and perfectly in sync with the rest of your session.

ONE… ,2, 3, 4 - Groovemate ONE quickly and easily spices up your tracks with that important feel. Just select one of the ready-made phrases and adjust them to your needs. Or play the contained instruments yourself, directly via MIDI input.

Easy, yet complex - The secret of the vibe-machine: Percussionists often use sophisticated patterns that work against or around the basic beat and emphasis, such as 3-over-4 and syncopations. Playing or programming these yourself might be tricky unless you're a percussionist yourself. With Groovemate ONE, you just browse through the presets and pick what works for you.
