    I am so pissed off that retrigger is not there, how could they leave out a standard bread and butter feature like this, I've always loved NI products but it seems like they are dropping the ball lately.

    maybe they hired a new programmer who doesn't understand the musical usefulness of this feature or something, it just seems like such an amateur mistake.

    I seriously expect better than this from NI.

    Can't agree more. Just got Komplete 10U and cannot work out why this fave function of mine was removed??

    Any word NI?

    Maschine is simply their answer...It does note repeat so damn good....I guess they thought Battery users would crossgrade. Ironically, there is no dedicated drum plugin that does note repeat like Maschine. We're pretty much stuck...for now (until I get my C++ up to par with music applications).

    Having just bought Battery 4 and THEN searched the net for how to make Trap-style hat rolls, I am really shocked that this feature is missing when it was previously included.

    Please can this module be re-instated ASAP? It's very disappointing to discover that it was removed...

    ...four years later.

    Any updates here?

    Seems there will be no update. They fulfilled it with Maschine. I don't agree with the method, but its a business. Maschine does it well, and they figure you'll be better off that way. If just for midi production, most DAWs now can easily paint repeats into a midi clip/region with keyboard shortcuts to change the time divisions. Hope you find the best workflow in the meantime.

    No I'm sorry, this is not a reasonable argument.

    The 2 systems (Battery and Maschine) are not comparable.

    Maschine has an entry price of £280 sterling MINIMUM for the most basic model, with the standard model costing £480 and deluxe £640. It REQUIRES you to own the hardware controller in order to even download the software.There is no standalone software (if there was it might be fair to compare it with Battery...)

    Battery is a standalone software product costing £170 sterling, comparable with plugin synths such as Xfer Serum.

    The market for Maschine is completely different - it is people looking for a hardware beatmaking system akin to Ableton Push. It is not the market who are looking for a simple VST plugin instrument to use in their productions.

    Removing key features from Battery that are known to help produce the 'Urban styles' that the product is geared towards is a complete own-goal.

    If the intention is to force people to buy into Maschine just because they miss that feature, it won't work. In fact, it has put me off ever buying into Maschine at any level.

    I repeat, the note re-trigger function should be added back to Battery.

    For free.

    Its not an argument. Its their choice of business model. We have continuously communicated our desire for the feature's return, but they have their own mind to remove it in the first place. I feel sorry for anyone buying battery separately rather than through an older version of Komplete if cost is an issue. Perhaps you should contact support directly for more forward answer. These days it will be ignored on the forum.

    Ok, will do my duty on this forum to add my vote to this thread.
    Totally madness they took away Note Repeat from Battery4.
    Please include this feature!
