Compatibility with most standard sample formats allows seamless integration of virtually any third party libraries. BATTERY 3 is the definition of drums.
Adaptive Interface
At the heart of BATTERY 3 lies the cell matrix, bigger and more versatile than ever before. With up to 128 sample cells, it is now fully customizable – define the number of cells, rows and columns to fit your exact needs. Color-code or select multiple cells for quick and easy management. Step through all your drums of a particular type and pre-listen samples within the current kit. BATTERY 3's flexible nature ensures the perfect setup for any situation.
Precision Performance
BATTERY 3 offers a wide range of sound shaping features, both for individual cells and on a global level. Adjustable articulations, such as flam, humanize and roll, add a natural feel to your rhythms. The time stretching feature allows samples to be sculpted and loops to be adjusted to the correct tempo. BATTERY 3 infuses all your percussive elements with an unmistakeable flavour.
