Steinberg Releases The Songwriter's Expansion

Buying Choices

Steinberg has announced the immediate availability of The Songwriter's, the latest release in a long line of VST Sound Instrument Sets. They tell us that The Songwriter's features a complete new acoustic drum kit played with sticks and rods, and offers styles that will find large appeal with singer-songwriters and musicians of folk, country and indie music.

The acoustic drum kit featured in The Songwriter's adds to the sound library of the Acoustic Agent included in Steinberg's complete drum workstation, Groove Agent 4, and the Groove Agent SE 4 instrument plug-in available in latest versions of Cubase. With over 4 GB of sample content, the drum samples are 24-bit resolution recordings, spanning up to 16 levels of velocity and six round robins. The 20 included Styles consist of intros, main grooves, fills and endings, which can seamlessly be varied in complexity and intensity.
