So I owned the beat buddy mini (bought 2 years ago or so) after looking at the full one for along time.
I quickly found that it wasn’t versatile enough for me, I was really limited to only 4-12 patterns since lots of them didn’t work for my music. And that gets stale over the course of a long set.
I remember early on the beat buddy had a software part that would let you switch kits (put the brush kit on the metal pattern, things like that), is that still a thing? Cause that’s what I would really need.
I have been looking hard at the beat buddy and the Aeros but the more I look the more issues I see people presenting. I’m just trying to figure out if this is still a route I should look into or look at other possibilities.
I play mostly original “cosmic country” music. Basically if Neil young had Pink Floyd as his backing band. Lots of spacey delay and reverb over folk/country songs.
I want to add percussion and the ability to loop and or save rhythm tracks so I can add ornamentation over it. I liked the interconnectivity of the Aeros and beat buddy but would it work for me? Can I take the hip hop kit and put it in the ballad pattern and play a prerecorded rhythm guitar track on the Aeros (or create one II guess wouldn’t be a deal breaker).
Thanks for any insight
