Steinberg announced the immediate availability of the Modern Jazz Essentials expansion set for Groove Agent 4 and Groove Agent SE 4.

Covering a vast range of music styles, Steinberg’s content sets offer beautifully crafted libraries for several of its virtual instruments.

Its included VST presets encompass the available Styles and drum kits, each with their own mixer settings and different time signatures and tempo.
