Steinberg releases "Simon Phillips Jazz Drums" Groove Agent Expansion

Steinberg has announced the immediate availability of the Simon Phillips Jazz Drums expansion set for Groove Agent 4 and Groove Agent SE 4.

The second release in the Artist Series of Steinberg content libraries, Simon Phillips Jazz Drums boasts 7.6 GB of samples, over 560 MIDI grooves and 20 Styles that were recorded and played by Phillips in his Phantom Recordings Studio in Los Angeles.

Simon Phillips Jazz Drums covers a broad variety of rhythmic jazz elements, with several influences originating in Latin, swing and many more. Available in 16 and 24-bits, the sounds were taken from an exclusively made drum kit including 22" and 24" cymbals from Phillips' extensive private collection.

Florian Haack, senior marketing manager at Steinberg, commented: "Our customers loved the last Groove Agent expansion we created together with Simon. This time we were looking for something outside the usual scope, and Simon has delivered just that with Simon Phillips Jazz Drums. Listen to the detailed quality of brushes and hits or listen to the vast range of sounds and you'll realize that this is a unique jazz drum library, second to none."
