I am trying to drive BeatBuddy sounds using DM1, an iPad drum machine that has Midi out. I think it would be great to have instant control of the beat so I can practice bass to it. Beatbuddy sounds so much better than DM1.
Right now, I have the Yamaha bluetooth midi device working. I can get DM1 to start and stop the current song loaded on BeatBuddy, but Beatbuddy won’t make any sounds if I hit DM1’s pads. (I have a midi cable as well, thinking I might run into problems using bluetooth.)
One thing I think I am missing is what are the Midi notes corresponding to a BeatBuddy drum machine. Where can I find that? I haven’t figured out yet how to change the notes that DM1 sends out, right now the Kick is Midi Note 36 and the snare is 38. I am hoping there is there is some sort of Midi ‘teach’ mode. All I have found is a learn mode, but I can’t see how to make that work with BB…
Someday, I think I will get a beatstep pro to drive BB as well a synth.
I tried searching on DM1, beatstep, sequencer, only found a guy who had similar problems back in 2015. Please let me know what the whole in my search method is.
Thanks a lot,
