Big Bang - Universal Drums is a virtual instrument for Mac OS X and Windows (VST, AU and RTAS). It features a deeply sampled custom made SJC drum kit played both with sticks and brushes as well as 2 different snare drums and 2 bass drum beaters for flexibility in most musical contexts.
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.
I.R.C. intercepts and adjusts MIDI events as they occur, seamlessly integrating each note into the host timeline and enabling users to create propulsive drum & percussion tracks with fluidity and ease. With I.R.C. enabled it is impossible to play out of time.
