Topic: Impulse vs Battery 3

Anyone considering Battery 3 needs to look through the NI forums for their history with Battery 2. It was left in a VERY buggy unstable state with obvious acknowledged, and easily reproduceable bugs right up until about a few weeks before Battery 3 was announced. It looks like they are going through...

If you start working with racks to make a complete drum module, you can start doing some neat stuff with Live's MIDI plugins. You could set it up, so that the note length is controlled by velocity. You do that by making a subrack that divides the incoming velocity to different chains of note length...

Depends. Sampler is not a drum sampler. Nor will it ever be one. It's a sampler-synth. Neither is Kontakt, Halion, Sampletank and most freeware/shareware soft samplers, but they all have choke groups ;). There are many uses for choke groups besides drums, Hhats are just the most obvious use, they c...

Sampler does not currently support ANY formats that utilise choke groups (like when you need to choke an open/closed hhat). Which means it cannot fully import most of the formats it claims it can, they need to remedy this real fast. It's a pretty basic sampler feature, but an essential one.

1. I expect a new "Pay for" Multi velocity level all singing all dancing drum sampler instrument, possibly called "Impact". Why? because Sampler is intentionally crippled to not allow proper choke groups needed for realistic drum samples. I can't think of any reason for leaving out something this es...

Anyway. No point in arguing any further. You want all-in-one. I like making it all-in-one-rack :wink: It's hard to argue this subject since Ableton's marketing people started calling Live a 'complete solution" instead of a "Live sequence instrument". Which it still is. Exactly ;) I have nothing aga...

What is battery? A rack of simplers.... Simpler can not do multi velocity levels like Battery. The thought of making a convoluted simpler rack to do this is far from ideal, A rack of simplers can.

Yeah but neither is Kontakt, Halion, EXS, Vsampler or just about any other soft sampler on the planet, and they all support choke groups, it's a pretty basic feature, even more so for a sampler specialising in "sound design".

the plugin is called "talent" anyway, yeah, if you're planning on tracking/mixing/arranging a "band" or whatever you want to call a group of people playing traditional instruments, there are certainly better things out there than abelton live. but if you are writing electronic music, there isn't an...
