Hi! I would also check out the DR008 by FXpansion-
http://www.fxpansion.com/
I have both, and use the DR008 about 99% of the time. Alot less money. I combined it with the Drumkit From Hell
http://drumkit.toontrack.com/
And that does all I need for writing rock/metal. If I want non-acoustic drums, DR008 comes with a bunch, and I have enough samples to make me happy. If I dont have it, a little time searching online can find it these days. I have suggested DFH to a few friends, and they have all thanked me. My vote for best sampled kit ever. If you decide to buy DFH, u can order direct, or from

Hope that helps a little. Nikki

I really like battery and I also use Drumkit From Hell. I'm probably going to be ditching battery soon, because I plan on picking up Mach Five when it is available.

Battery is very simple and very effective. I highly recommend DFH also.

`you cant actually program beats in it though can you?i`ve been playing around with the demo for a few hours and it seems to me that battery is only for manipulating the actually drum sounds and not for programming the beats, which is what im really after....

No, Battery is a sampler. You load sounds into it and trigger them with a sequencer, like Cubase.

I use Digital Performer on the Mac. It isn't available for PC. Any sequencer is capable though. Cubase, Logic, Sonar, they all work pretty much the same way.
