First released as part of Steinberg's Studio Case product, the Steinberg Virtual Instrument Collection is now available as a stand-alone package for Windows and Mac OS X. Groove Agent SE takes care of the drum department with its authentic grooves, while Virtual Guitarist Electric Edition SE offers dynamic, realistic electric guitar phrases in a variety of styles. The Grand SE provides smooth, natural piano sounds, while D'cota SE offers analogue and FM synthesis for a wide range of sounds and textures. The package is rounded off by the Special Edition of Steinberg's HALion VST sampler, with disk streaming, 32-bit/96 kHz support and the same great-sounding Waldorf filters found in the full version of HALion.
Steinberg have released the Virtual Instrument Collection, which includes Special Edition versions of 5 Steinberg instruments for an MSRP of $149.99 USD.
