Battery Version 2 is toted by NI as "the next generation in drum sampling".

its own dedicated multi-mode filter and a compressor allowing
detailed adjustments to be made for each individual sample. Extended
modulation options including freely assignable envelopes and LFOs,
flexible Loop section, a graphical mapping editor managing 128
sample layers per cell, a 3.5 GB sample library, compatibility to
