The recording team
Metro Heights for Groove Agents were produced by allenmorganaudio LLC (Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton) in cooperation with the sound designers at Steinberg. With over 20 years of experience in the music industry, Allen Morgan developed the concept and put together the team that was challenged to convey the genuine sound into Groove Agent. Audio Engineer Buckley Miller worked with artists like Mat Kearney, Josh Groban, John Tibbs or Kelly Clarkson. The seat as the session drummer was taken by Miles McPherson who was in charge for the sampling as well as for some of the Styles which are heavily influenced by the sound of Nashville.
