Native Instruments Battery 3 is compatible with Windows Xp , 7 and Mac, I haven't encountered any problems regarding the help manual, everything is pretty well explained and the functions are easily accessible.
The general configuration is great,everything works fast and the interface is straight forwarded.


The application performs well without using a lot of cpu resources and it provides some great balance between the human touch and the pc programming of the drums.
The sampling engine has been changed and it has now a lot of improvements, the sample library is bigger and better, the matrix cells now can contain up to 128 patterns.
The gear is very stable, as usual Native Instruments make a very good job.
I've been using for about 2 months, and I gotta admit I like a lot, and I've been using in my electronic type of tracks and some that carry a rocky feel.


What I like most about it are the new functions that consist of a humanise choice and a choice of drumming articulations.
Battery 3 has also been given a visible renovation - the angular, medical look of previously variations is gone and now we have a Pro feel.
With all of its new features I could claim that is one of the best drum programming soft now on the market, You should check it out, the humanize functions really make a difference, and My advice is to use a midi controller, because that way you have full control over velocity of your drums and layers.

The precision of the drums is well fixed, I like the snares sounds, you can easily create some great layering with those 12 gb of drum samples, so using the Native Instruments Battery can really boost your creativity patterns.

I would buy over and over again Native Instruments Battery 3 because of it's high quality samples and the help that provides to the musician.
