Native Battery has been my #1 go to sampler for years. It is easy to use and works great with all types of samples (not just drums). I use Battery to trigger samples using a trigger finger pad controller. You cannot go wrong with this software sampler. Getting started was easy, just load it up and install, insert it into a channel and you are good to go. You wont need a manual, but if you need one you can easily download one from the website.


The library was stocked full of rhythm kits that got me going right away and has already made a difference in my productions. It isso powerful. I run a Mac G5 OS 10.4, 1.2 Gb, 1.6 Mhz, MAUDIO UNO, LOGIC 9 . Runs like a charm, and sounds great. My Favorite features are the Drag-and-Drop (loading sound files is so cool this way- select them all at once and BOOM!) and the Articulation pretty good on the MIDI drums, now I sound like a pro. Plus effects & filters for each cell! I can add or make a new kit like that - forever. Do they know how powerful this thing is? Not just for drums. Try loading SFX & BKG vocal sound files for a cool Radio/Podcast arsenal - a thousand useful adaptations.


Overall it doesn’t get much better then Battery 3, they have made some upgrades though and I think the newer version has been out for some time now. But I am very happy with Battery 3. If you are looking for a software that is a do it all drum software then look no further. This is it you wont need any other software vst for drumming. It has a kit for whatever your genre or taste in music has. It even has a beat box, which I love because it can bring some change up and creativity to your tracks. Awesome program!
