now, one of the problems with daws in the past, and still present in some cases, is that you can’t control a sample while it is playing. for example, you can’t have a clip of a hi-hat playing, and then have a clip of a snare drum playing at the same time. in battery, you can do this, and you can do it while you are editing the samples. this is handled by creating a’region’ of the cds that represents the part of the sample that you want to edit, and then working on that region only.

a cell comprises one or more samples, a number of ‘tracks’ of controls, and one or more’modes’. a cds is the file format that battery uses to store and manage samples, and you can have up to 32 of these per cell, each cds storing up to 256mb of sample data. tracks are where you can add ‘knobs’ to your sample, which, when the sample is played, will affect your sound. for example, a kick track might have a panning knob, which changes the pan position, and a volume knob, which changes the overall volume. modes are where you can change what your cell does. for example, you can have the cell set up to play a ‘looping’ sample or a ‘free’ sample.

as with the original battery, you have a slider for the filter cutoff, attack and release envelopes, and a nifty adsr-style automated tool for setting the release rate. the sustain level is initially set at half the value of the sustain rate; if you hold the button down, the envelope is raised to max and the level remains at that level until the release button is pressed. there’s also a control to adjust the filter’s resonance, or resonance slope, which determines how rapidly the filter responds to variations in the input signal. this is probably the only place on battery 2 where a real-time display of the filter’s behaviour may be useful – if you are changing the resonance controls, you can see how the filter responds to your changes instantaneously. in practice, though, the resonance is not very responsive – there’s not much difference in the sound between peaks and troughs.

my only gripe with battery 2 is that the loading dialog can be quite a bit slower than with battery 1, and this may be because of a few more files have to be opened. battery 2 also handles files a little differently to battery 1. if you save a file with a fixed name, battery 2 will overwrite the original file with the new version if you are in the main window and close the file dialog. otherwise, battery 2 saves files to a new file every time you save, and if you open a file in the main window, it will open the latest version. to change this behaviour, choose the ‘options’ menu and choose ‘save files in current tab’. this will mean that when you close the file dialog, the new version of the file will be saved, and you will not be able to open the same file again. battery 2’s interface is similar to battery 1, with tabs at the top for ‘cells’, ‘drums’ and ‘keyboard’. the ‘drums’ tab has a list of the kits loaded, and also a search function to quickly find a specific kit. the tabs can be closed or hidden by dragging them onto the edge of the screen. the main window contains a list of the loaded cells and a list of the currently loaded kits. these lists can be scrolled to see more or less information. the cell list has a search function that uses a wildcard (*) to search for any cell name, and another wildcard (?) that searches for a specific cell name. the kits list also contains a search function which can search for specific kits, their cell names, or the name of a cell. within the cell list, there is a ‘quick browse’ function that allows you to quickly and easily find a cell.
