One of the things that really pissed me off was the removal of several kits that could be used for composing, such as ethnic kits. I have both 3 and 4 installed, and I use both.
4 has the advantage in that, as mentioned, a lot of people make kits for it (including NI itself in its Expansions series).
Wow!! I am amazed that NI have released Battery 4 with all of these features missing. These are all major features. Really major features. Someone from NI really needs to explain why these Battery 3 features were missing from the original Battery 4 release....and are still missing now. I definitely will not be "upgrading". I use Battery 3 a lot. Love it's interface - so well designed. It allows me to build and edit my own kits with minimum of fuss. It has just the right amount of features that I need to edit my sounds. It's automation and modulation system is great.
