Steinberg has announced the immediate availability of the Modern Jazz Essentials expansion set for Groove Agent 4 and Groove Agent SE 4. Here’s the story in their own words…
Covering a vast range of music styles, Steinberg’s content sets offer beautifully crafted libraries for several of its virtual instruments. Groove Agent is the veteran drum instrument that already includes a variety of rhythmic elements and sounds, but also boasts numerous supplementary libraries catering to the individual needs and ready to energize any production.
Modern Jazz Essentials provides further jazz grooves to Groove Agent’s Acoustic Agent, with its rhythmic intricacy being a direct influence from modern jazz music. Its included VST presets encompass the available Styles and drum kits, each with their own mixer settings and different time signatures and tempo.
Florian Haack, senior marketing manager at Steinberg, commented: “Modern Jazz Essentials perfectly complements the countless expansion libraries meanwhile offered by Steinberg. For all jazz music producers or jazz players looking for easy-to-use drum patterns, Modern Jazz Essentials along with Groove Agent is the perfect fit for you!”
