Steinberg Nashville

Steinberg has announced the release of Nashville, a new expansion pack for Groove Agent 4 and Groove Agent SE 4.

Spanning over 7 GB of remarkable content, the Nashville drum kit boasts more than 8,000 samples that were recorded by Grammy-award-winning sound engineer Chad Carlson at the legendary Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Each instrument of the 13-piece Yamaha drum set was sampled in 16 velocities and five round robins, allowing Carlson to capture the natural sound and balance of the entire drum kit.

The 21 Styles included in Nashville cover a wide range of country music, reaching from soulful ballads to country-inflected R&B to lively country rock grooves.

Matthias Quellmann, Senior Marketing Manager at Steinberg, commented: “We at Steinberg are proud that we had the chance to work with such brilliant people in this amazing studio on this project. The result really speaks for itself.”
