I’ve just read a very long post on here about using the beatbuddy with the boss rc-300 which has raised as many questions as it’s answered so starting another thread here to try gain some clarity.
Here’s an example of one of my songs I did at home in my studio, that I’m looking to do solo live, until the band turns up!
Basically drums, guitar, keys, vocals
And I’m looking for best combo of Beat Buddy and looper for the job. I’ve got it down to Beat Buddy or Beat Buddy mini with Boss RC-300. I’ve ruled out the Boomerang as i need to store the choruses.
So before I go out and spend some money, could you please listen to the song and then tell me whether doing it and such like will be possible with just me, a beat buddy and a looper. I need to be able to loop guitar & keys simultaneously as some of my songs I can’t sing and play at the same time.
For the example song above I get the way you’d say start the beat buddy, play the keys intro, loop it, then add rhythm guitar, loop it, start singing, then how the hell do you switch to a chorus. Do you have to have the keys and guitar parts saved and then hit 2 pedals to activate, then when you switch back to verse you trigger the parts you played earlier? Sounds like a nightmare, is it all easier than it sounds with a bit of practice?
Would I need the full Beat Buddy or would the Mini do the job? i dont intend to have much variation in the beats, just need something that sounds the business and is easy to use.
What about the rc-300 playing nicely with the beat buddy i.e. midi sync issues. I’ve read a very long post on here somewhere about it but tbh cant figure out whether it’ll work or not for my songs. Seems best way is to make rc-300 master and Beat Buddy slave?
I know this’ mostly about the rc-300 not the Beat Buddy, but Boss don’t seems to have a user forum
Thanks in advance
