Using Battery 4 Kits with MIDI Files

Here's where you're likely to find your kits folder:
PC location: C:\Users\[Your Name]\Documents\Native Instruments\Battery 4\Kits
Mac Location: /Users/[Your Name]/Documents/Native Instruments/Battery 4/Kits
2. Rescan Battery kits after copying
- Go to: Edit/Preferences/Library tab/User tab/
- Select the user folder and rescan!
3. Loading a kit
- Select "User" kits in Battery
- Select a kit (they all start with "GM")
The first time you load the kit, Battery will display a "missing samples" message.
Click on "Search Library" AND under options, select "Apply to other Battery instances".
If you need assistance let us know and if you'd like me to create a kit or two, let me know which kit to use as a starting point. Enjoy!
