I’ve just received my new BeatBuddy pedal from Sweetwater and it works fine as a standalone drum pedal. There’s nothing else like it out there!
However, when I attach the USB cable to my 2009 MacBook Pro running the latest OS X, the BeatBuddy doesn’t show up on the desktop nor within the BB Manager software under any variation of Import or Export to or from the pedal. The same applies to Importing or Exporting a Single Project.
I’ve also placed the SD Card into a USB card reader and it doesn’t show up on my desktop either even though I have all of the correct View options checked in Finder Preferences. I also looked to see if it shows within the Disk Utility program, it doesn’t
The BeatBuddy is such a wonderful concept but, I’ve spent a bunch of money on Groove Monkee Drum Loops and have no idea how I’m going to get them into the BeatBuddy under the current circumstances. I have a single gig coming up in May and I was hoping the that my BeatBuddy would be ready to use on that gig. (90% of the time I’m working with a live drummer except when I do Single or Duo gigs.)
Should I buy another SD card and copy the default content onto it and see if my Mac can recognize it?
I hope that someone in this Forum has some ideas and takes mercy on this newbie.
Thanks in advance for your help.
