Metro Heights is another addition to the Groove Agent library and this time we focused on the indie rock genre using a vintage '60s Slingerland drum kit. And I can tell you it made all the difference!," said Florian Haack , Senior Marketing Manager, Steinberg.

Steinberg today announced the immediate availability of Metro Heights, the latest expansion set for Groove Agent.

Metro Heights is a brand-new addition to the wide range of high-quality sounds, first-class presets and complementary content for various music genres offered through Steinberg's acclaimed VST Sound Instrument Sets.

Available for the Acoustic Agent drum kits of Steinberg's award-winning Groove Agent 4 drum software and the Groove Agent SE 4 plug-in included in latest versions of Cubase, Metro Heights also includes a variety of intros, main grooves, fills and endings that cover different tempos and time signatures.
