After many hours of homework, I’m thinking of purchasing a BeatBuddy. Before I do, however, I would like to get some feedback from experienced users about how well it functions as a MIDI slave. I have found 2 posts in this forum that seem to suggest the BB has sync issues when slaved to another device’s MIDI clock: Post 1[/URL], [URL=‘http://mybeatbuddy.com/forum/index.php?threads/midi-clock-in-sync-issue.1834/’]Post 2
I have an Eventide H9 that I would like to use as the MIDI Clock master, primarily because it has tap tempo, and I simply don’t have the room to accommodate the BB footswitch. In my case, I would like to use the BB primarily as a “click track” generator that I can send to other band members by toggling the pedal off and on. Consequently, I need it to receive the correct clock info and stay sync’d to it.
In the end, the setup will be H9 (Master) --> MIDI Solutions Quadra Thru --> Pigtronix Infinity --> Moog MuRF --> BeatBuddy (for click)
This is expensive unit: honestly overkill for what I need, but the ability to toggle live click off and on via a stomp box is worth the price, assuming it works correctly. Thanks for any advice and/or info!
