BATTERY 3.0.4.001

An efficient and reliable tool designed as a drum sampler for creating and fine-tuning all of the percussive elements in any production
BATTERY is a comprehensive drum-sampling application, providing you with the necessary tools to adjust and tune percussion instruments in an audio file.

Insert ready audio kits to get started

The program allows you to work with the pre-existing audio kits. By loading any of them, the main window will display a series of cells – the 'Drum / Sample Matrix' with each cell holding up to 128 samples. You can also use additional drums and sound effects from the 'Cell Library'.

Work with cells to apply sound effects

The 'Edit Pane' enables you to map audio samples within a cell, as well as add 'Modulation', 'Filtering', 'Dynamics'  features or set up loop points for a specific sample. Furthermore, you can adjust the 'Pitch' or assign outputs, thus allowing for full customization of your drum kit.

Control master volume, loop samples, and edit audio settings

Another interesting feature is the 'Master Volume Control' that allows you to set the general level for all outputs in a kit, by offering information about an over-loaded mixer channel. This in turn allows you to lower its value and prevent any sound distortions.

BATTERY allows you to loop audio samples on user-defined points, until 'Key Release' or 'End of Envelope', while also enabling you to set the 'Start', 'Length', 'Tune' and 'X-Fade' values. From the 'Modulation' section, users can adjust the 'Frequency' values and 'Fade In' duration, or set the 'Volume' and 'Pitch Envelopes'.

Moreover, the 'Effects' function enables you to adjust the 'Lo-fi' Bits and Hertz, increase or decrease the 'Saturation', or simply set the preferred values for the 'EQ / Filter', the 'Compressor' or the 'Inverter'. Using the 'Browser' component, you can explore files on your computer as well as databases containing samples or instruments, simplifying the management of such files.

Conclusion

BATTERY is a professional drum sampler, offering numerous advanced functions and configuration settings, but it can prove difficult to understand by beginners, as many of its components require previous experience in order to be handled correctly.
