Tell me if I have this right.
You can’t really import 3rd party Midi unless it’s in a proprietary BeatBuddy MIDI format?
So you’d have to open up, say, a Loop Loft MIDI drum file in some MIDI Editor (ie Reaper or Superior Drummer) and then move the various hits (ie Kick, Snare, Hi-Hat) to the correct BeatBuddy mapping?
Anywho, I looked at SingularSound’s packaging, but their Complete looks like mostly songs, with just a few straight up MIDI files.
I’m not looking for songs really, just singular MIDI files to jam ideas to.
So far, I found a huge song dump, and see I can just save MIDI files from those User Made songs to the User Midi folder as single MIDI files. Which solves my immediate problem of getting more MIDI files.
But is there an easy way to IMPORT 3rd party midi, or do you have to laboriously hand move individual parts of a drum to some BeatBuddy MIDI mapping?
I love how Superior Drummer allows you to just set whom you’re MIDI file is coming from and it auto-maps for you. BeatBuddy won’t be complete for me until they have that function, or there is a way to easily translate 3rd party midi. This propriety MIDI seems kind of cheap (ie forcing you to buy their offering)
IF I am wrong, correct me. Those are my impressions I’m asking after as a newbie. Got the pedal yesterday at a local store to support small business owners. I like it so far. Very cool device. Tho some songs don’t seem to stop when you double press the pedal. IDK why.
