I was just doing general Google searches for FREE Battery kits to download. Funny, I thought there would be dozens. Guess the joke's on me. So, there's NONE here? 😒😓😭

    Unfortunately, no, there is no Battery User Library (such as the Reaktor User Library).

    Good idea though, however might be not possible to be done, because sample directories are very different among users (especially in Windows, because every user has a unique name).

    For example:

    My custom sets: C:\Users\my_name\Documents\Native Instruments\Battery\Kits

    Your custom sets: C:\Users\your_name\Documents\Native Instruments\Battery\Kits

    So, Battery will look for a sample folder that do not exist. Ok, you can relocate them for sure, but still, a bit non-practical.

    -Another reason is that, there are billions of audio samples out there (both, commercial and free), so every user can make his own kits really easy, in fact, in minutes.

    -A third reason might be copyright issues with audio samples, since it would be nearly impossible that every user kit been checked before available to public.

    Thanks Sunburn. I hear ya, but I was actually thinking of custom kits designed from the stnd Factory samples we already have. I was looking for a natural sounding kit much like Session LE.
