I have tried ReBirth, Redrum, Live's built in Drum Machine/Sampler as well as GarageBand's built in Drum Machine/Sampler. Not one of them come close to the amount and quality of sounds that come with Battery 2. I use Battery 2 with Ableton Live Lite 5 as a VST and haven't had a single problem with it. It worked right out of the box. I can't recommend this product enough. If you are looking for a great Drum Machine/Sampler to lay down some great Drum tracks, look no further...you've found it.
Very good vst instrument, I am a rap producer and I would recommend it to anybody that produces hip-hop. The instruments are very good and it is very fun to tweak the sounds and instruments.
Read the Native Instruments forums before you buy anything. Their products are practically unusable in the RTAs form. Worse, they're aware of the problems and do nothing to change the misleading information.
I've personally never had any issue with Battery or Battery 2. In fact, it's one of if not the easiest way to make drum patterns. I've been using my keyboard for the few times I couldn't think out the beat.I personally own Battery and my bandmate's got Battery 2. I've been using his anytime I'm on his PC. (He uses Cubase SX and I have Live 4) The only diffuclt time I have with it is inside of Cubase. that's only because I'm not familiar with it yet.Battery 2's new browse feature makes the process of loading sounds almost too easy. And yes the sound reproduction is top quality.Get Battery 2 if you want to have a super easy time making beats.
I have another NI product and I have to say I'm very pleased with it. The sound, interface, and usability are awesome. On Battery 2 I have to say the only redeeming quality is the sound, not surprising, NI always sounds great. But, it's not intuitive at all, and good luck creating drum parts of any difficulty with a midi controller.
I was looking for a flexible way to provide drums for my recordings that wouldn't lock me into a single product like BFD or DFH2 do with their proprietary samplers and sometimes proprietary formats (BFD). I wanted to be able to be up and running immediately in a DXi host (Cakewalk Home Studio XL) and have multiple outputs available to process drum sounds separately.Battery 2 fit the bill. Easy to understand. Works with many different formats. The stock drum kits that come with it are worth the price of the product alone. I also use it with some free sampled kits available on the Internet with amazing results. Will work with DFH Multisample Edition. Very light resource usage compared to BFD or DFH2 and DFG Superior.The multiple output option makes individual processing of kick, snare, cymbals, toms, etc a breeze. And if your sampled kit includes samples of the same drum with different mics (direct, room overhead) you can map these to separate outputs and route them to the host.The best drum sampler on the market. Period.
