Showcasing the Mandala’s unprecedented ability to control pro audio software, Synesthesia Corporation released 50 Native Instruments Battery 3 presets for the Mandala 2.0, along with an HD Black Beauty Battery 3 Player for Mandala.
The presets configure drum sampler Battery 3 for use with the Mandala (Battery 3 required, and is not included with the Mandala), using only samples from the Battery 3 12GB library of more than 100 drum kits with more than 23,000 individual samples. The presets configure the Mandala pad as a straightforward MIDI controller.
The Battery 3 presets also:
* Assign samples in up to seven circular trigger zones across the Mandala pad.
* Extensively use the Mandala's 128 circular strike zones to change triggering and effects parameters as drummers play, for true HD drumming.
* Cover playing styles from straightforward grooves to experimental sonics.
