Quick question for NI battery users

Just something simple but hard to google due to the word 'battery'. I have an LPD8 hooked up to ableton and I'm running Battery as an external instrument in a drum rack. I want to tap my beats in on the LPD8, but I find the velocity to volume sensitivity way too high. I have to pound the pads too hard. I have looked all over battery's interface and elsewhere. How do I lower the sensitivity?

Still learning how to use it. Can definitely get some tight sounding drum tracks out of it, but the routing and everything else is a bit of a pain. Lot of tedious stuff to do before you can actually start programming the percussion but, it does sound great. meh.....

Re: Quick question for NI battery users

I'm not very familiar with that specific controller however most have some type of software preferences you can choose on your computer, I use maschine, but the process should be similar. look for an option entitled velocities sensitivity orb plane sensitivity. that way you are fixing it at the saurus rather than having to patch the problem with a velocity modifier.

Re: Quick question for NI battery users

click on the modulation tab in battery, to the right in the modulation router the first parameter should be automatically set to Velocity/Vol and it will be at 100. move that closer to the middle (0)

i've found this is the easiest way to control velocity if you want to go cell by cell.

Re: Quick question for NI battery users

Mess with the "Min" amount.
127 = no dynamic range.
1 = full dynamic range.

Re: Quick question for NI battery users

Much appreciated guys, that works like a charm. Just curious, do you guys have any other workflow tips or anything regarding battery? Is there a way to use this in combination with another drum sequencing vst? I have also been looking for something like that. I use the G-Stomper on my phone and quite like that old fashioned method of sequencing, from the hardware sequencers. Would love to find a good VST for Live.

Re: Quick question for NI battery users

2 things come to mind that make me more comfortable working in battery-

first, when i am stacking diff. samples on top of each other to layer into one sound i like to keep them in the same column and color code them, so for example, in the screen shot below, all of the blue cells are my kick, which are both mapped to the same pad on my controller, and all of the pinkish cells are my snare-

second- this one is kind of a resource/voice hog and i feel like somebody is going to make fun of me for doing things this way, but here goes-

Once I have sounds layered the way I like them I send them out to their own aux send and then do some eq'ing and comp'ing to the sound as a whole. this way i can also send the sounds to my verb send w/in the session and use other effects plug that i like better than the effects w/in battery. I also prefer just mixing levels b/w samples this way too. here's a screenshot of my instrument track w/ battery on it and the individual stems-

This is great, actually, and is pretty standard when it comes to drum software plugins like Battery, Superior Drummer, or BFD. Many a time you would actually like to use other effects besides the ones you get in the software, like you said. Care to explain how you would do this in Battery? I am sure many users would like to know

this is what I have done, that allows you to use all the same routing and effects as a drum rack.
