Sonivox (http://www.sonivoxmi.com/) has released their latest virtual instrument release Big Bang — Universal Drums. Mac and Windows compatible, it features a deeply sampled custom made SJC drum kit played both with sticks and brushes, as well as two different snare drums and two bass drum beaters.
An integral part of Big Bang — Universal Drums is a new technology called Intelligent Rhythm Control, or IRC. Intelligent Rhythm Control Technology is a new concept in music production that offers real-time rhythm correction for maximizing in-time musical performance, according to the folks at Sonivox.
I.R.C. intercepts and adjusts MIDI events as they occur, integrating each note into the host timeline and enabling users to create drum and percussion tracks with fluidity. Big Bang — Universal Drums is available now at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$149.99.
