BeatBuddy Midi Map Spreadsheet

Great work. Very much appreciated

Thanks. This is fantastic.

Hi. Is the midi map for the “Jazz-Brushes” drum kit available ?

Thanks ! Chris G

Which one is that?

Here’s the link :

I’m guessing the midi map is pretty close to the “Jazz” drum set.

Yeah, sorry I don’t have that one so I haven’t added that to the spreadsheet. If you take a screen shot (or two - depending on how big your screen is and the number of instruments) of the list of instruments in the Beat Buddy Manager Midi Editor, I could add it for you.

Just tried to attach the screenshot. I think I can just use this so thanks very much for the hint.

OK your sheet says “Tom 4”. The BB manager however, refers to Low Tom, Floor Tom etc. How do I cross-reference?

You can use the number. In your example 41 is Low Tom 2 in general midi drums. The only BB kit that has a sound for that number in this list is the world percussion kit.

What are you trying to do?

I’m building a drum kit in Studio One’s Impact and duplicating it in the BB manager for use on the BB. The Drums don’t parallel a normal kit. The kit uses audio files that duplicate improvised rhythm instruments on some early post-war blues records. Some are referred to as “Swamp Blues”. So I have to take, for instance, the toms and use their midi number for other instruments. Studio one refers to Toms as 1,2,3 etc without reference to their pitch. Just trying to sort all this out…

Guys, help required
I really love the sound of Pearl Piccolo snare (this one), what’s the closest sound I can get from BeatBuddy?

If you have that snare, you can sample it, i.e., record it, and produce 16 or 24 bit 44.1khz wav files. Then put those into a BB kit. That would be how to get that sound from the BB.

thank you

What a timesaver, thanks for sharing

Thank you very much

Thanks so much!

This should be coming with the BB Manual. Fantastic effort. Thank you!!!

Copy it from Long Map Tab…

This one isn’t complete, either: My spreadsheet covers Cajon&Perc variations, Standard variations and a few Electronic drum kits - but nothing within the Rock world.

  1. Washboard, Bengie Cajon, Super Cajon 2.0 (Nuskyn), NuCajon, Cajon by Angelo, Bodhran, Djembe Basic, Ballad Congas.
  2. Brushes, Flamenco Perc., Jazz Brushes, Jazz, Latin, Percussion, Reggae, (STAX) Coffee House, World Perc, World Perc Plus.
  3. Standard, Standard (JoeV), Standard Pro, Sub-Std Pro, Vintage Ludwig (most of which with bass versions), Retro Custom, Worship Kit.
  4. Dance, Ethereal, Voice, Roland TR-505, TR-707.
