    By HC News |

    Cumberland, R.I. (July 15, 2013)—SONiVOX, a leading creator of premium virtualinstruments and synthesis technologies, has released Big Bang Universal Drums 2.0, the latest version of their expansive percussion instrument. New features in Version 2.0 include an integrated patch browser, new content, plus 64-bit VST and AU support.

    Few tasks in the studio are as tedious and time-consuming as getting a fantastic drumsound—finding the right drums, the right microphones, the proper placement, and effective gain control. Big Bang Universal Drums 2.0 from Sonivox solves all these issues with over 15 GB of perfectly captured drum sounds—16 kits and over 400 patches are instantly available to enhance any recording with top studio drums. BigBang Universal Drums 2.0 was created using handcrafted SJC Custom drums, in thestudio using both close and ambient mic placement, with careful attention paid to getting just the right sound. There are both stick hits and brush strokes, and all programs weremeticulously sampled at multiple velocities, with multiple hits being triggered in a round-robin style for the pinnacle of realism and authenticity.

    SONiVOX created their Intelligent Rhythm Control (IRC) to apply user-defined rhythmic feel and timing in real-time, as notes are played, capturing the performer’s inspiredmoments while eliminating the need for further editing after the fact. The stereo delayallows either the left or right channel—or both—to be synchronized to beat values of thecurrent tempo, tying the sound, song, and effects together. The convenient Note Repeatfunction retriggers any sound at a pre-selected beat/tempo value for as long as the pad, key, or trigger is held down, making it easy for any player to build up complex parts

    “Every song begins with a beat,” says Jason Jordan, Head of Soundware at SONiVOX.
    “Our Big Bang Universal Drums provides just the right sound to get the beat started andbring any track to life, regardless of style or genre. And it does it instantly. We’ve addednew sounds and a new browser to find them quickly, as well 64-bit VST and AU

    Big Bang Universal Drums 2.0 offers a new integrated browser that makes it easy to find, sort, and view exactly the right sound. Patches are categorized into Genre, KickDrum, Snare Drum—and of course, Name—allowing sounds to be viewed and recalledin a musically meaningful way. All sounds can be individually shaped by the player,

    allowing for custom control. Pitch, dynamics, pan, and filter controls are all readilyavailable, and settings are savable per patch. Multiple output buses allow the EQ andDelay routing to be quickly configured for multi-track recording or multi-channel outputs.

    The on-screen graphics mimic the layout of a traditional drumkit, making padassignments to a controller simple. Big Bang Universal Drums 2.0 MIDI also offers a
    MIDI Learn Mode, allowing quick integration with any MIDI keyboard, electronic drumset, MPC, or pad controller. Plus, Big Bang Universal Drums 2.0 can save and recallMIDI Learn presets and use them with any patch, so they need only be created once.
