Visiting the BeatBuddy again and had an approach question . .
- I grabbed the software and got the sd card from the BeatBuddy and I have made a backup to the macbook of the SD card contents. I did choose to sync . .but now I am wondering.
- I have been collecting pieces and songs from BB’s premium content, groove monkey, etc and I believe I have what I need to now begin putting things togther . My plan is to create each song in beat buddy software and either grab pieces from my “library” on the mac and bring in to the song I am working on and/or use the internal midi editor.
- I am unsure how to begin this . .I “think” I should just do a new project and start with each song placing in that project. The goal is to have a “project” that just has the songs I want to use in it . not a BeatBuddy full of a lot of drum sets and unused material. Having said that, I would be working on the macbook writing and testing each piece and song . . then ultimately put that on SD card for the BeatBuddy. Whatever I put on the SD card would also be resident on the macbook as a copy and/or to produce backup SD cards.
Can anyone give advice on this approach? Would this be done in a project? Did I mess up telling the software to sync the existing project which was just to copy the BeatBuddy to computer for the content? On another note, ultimately I am after a non sub folder song listing on my own content on the beat buddy to easily send MIDI song selection commands to. Most resources I use people have a LOT of content on their machine in root and sub directories. I haven’t really seen anything like I am doing which is just the songlist and maybe vintage ludwig and standard pro drum sets . . without all of the extra and used content . .but to keep that on the mac if I want to grab a snippet or set. Hope this makes sense.
