Native Instruments releases Battery v2.1.5

Native Instruments

Native Instruments has updated Battery to v2.1.5.

  • CRASH: crashes when the memory overloaded.
  • CRASH: change in options > cell trigger velocity crashes Logic7.
  • CRASH: crash pressing "eject CD" without CD in drive.
  • CRASH: when ProTools Sample buffer is set above 512 - full crash.
  • CRASH: Pro Tools disappears when Battery 3/4 cell is triggered.
  • CRASH: Crash after visiting Audio/MIDI.
  • GROUPING: round robin B row.
  • HEADER: Master Level not working correctly.
  • HOST: B2 steals cubase keys.
  • HOST: Modulation adjust for cells selected in row not working.
  • HOST: some modulation settings are not saved in chunk.
  • HOST: No prehear in Browser while sequencer is running.
  • HOST: Battery automation windows pops up in Sonar.
  • IMPORT: Akai import - no refresh in browser.
  • IMPORT: Kontakt .nki file import not possible.
  • IMPORT: SF2 create strange cell/sample.
  • IMPORT: LM4 Mark 1 kits import issue.
  • IMPORT: REX slices have wrong order.
  • IMPORT: format import problems.
  • IMPORT: sort cells according to key order.
  • MAPPING: Tune, Pan, and Volume values are lost when replacing a zone.
  • MATRIX: cell reverts back to it's original settings.
  • MODULATION: automation assign and automation jumps.
  • MODULATION: complete audio dropout while automation.
  • MODULATION: Battery 2 - recall modulation issue.
  • MODULATION: Parameter does not react to CC if assigned to all cells.
  • MODULATION: Midi CCs cannot be removed from list.
  • MODULATION: settings are not preserved.
  • OUTPUTS: multiple outs Mono do not work.
  • PERFORMANCE: Long loading times.
  • SETTINGS: midi controller bugs.
  • SETTINGS: Output configuration is no longer editable.
  • STATUS: show automation.
  • USABILITY: can not change root key for empty cells.

Known Limitations and Issues:

  • Recording of automation via the Battery interface seems to be broken in Live with AU and Digital Performer with AU. Please use the VST version with Live and the "Hyper Draw" function in Digital Performer. Some automation recording problems were also reported for the DXi version.
  • PC: Problems can occur with multi-outs in the RTAS version.
  • It is strongly recommended to update to ProTools 7.x. Battery can still be loaded in ProTools 6.9 but you might experience strange issues that were not happening with earlier Battery versions.
