Hello! I’m new to the forum. I’ve had my BeatBuddy since last November 2014 and been using it on a regular basis, for daily practice and gigging. Played 3 shows with it so far, never had a problem with it. However, in the last few months I’ve noticed a MAJOR BUG. While I’m using it, the BB will suddenly make a high pitched robotic sound, stop the beat, shut down, and reset. If I start playing it after that, everything works fine, until the next time it decides to do this on me… This all happens at random intervals, and doesn’t really matter on which drum kit I’m using. Obviously it’d be a disaster if this were to occur during a gig, and I’ve just about reached my threshold on putting up with this problem.
I’ve seen similar issues (if not the same) pop up in other threads on this forum…
…so my apologies for yet another thread about it. It doesn’t seem like the problem has been resolved… and there’s no way to pin point exactly how this happens, as once again it happens randomly. I checked all the BB’s connectors and nothing is loose, so my guess is that its either an issue with the SD card or the firmware. However my bet is on the latter since I never had this problem before the firmware 1.2.9 update last Dec). But if that is the case, does anyone have any idea when there will be another firmware update?
Firmware matters aside, I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this issue and may know what the problem might be (and suggestions on how to fix this). Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
