BeatBuddy: STOP with 1 tap of main foot switch

I’d like to join the chorus of people who have requested that the BB have an option to stop playback with one tap of the main foot switch. Both the double-tap Outro and 3-tap Stop are kind of clunky, and I most frequently just want it to stop when I want it to stop.

I can’t imagine this is so difficult to implement, but what do I know, I guess? In any case, perhaps it could be included as an option in the next firmware update. Thanks for considering.

Best Wishes,
Andrew

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like a good idea. How would you like to start playback—double- or triple-tap? Although it sounds simple, it might not be as they would have to change the BeatBuddy Manager (BBM) as well as the pedal. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I’d just a like a simple, single-tap START, and a single-tap STOP, like any other effect pedal.

If managed in the software, or on the hardware itself, provide an option to enable the single-tap behavior, and make any affected attributes no longer available in the software (i.e. “greyed out”)

While you’re at it, might as well have options to assign any action to single, hold, double, and dare I say, triple click for the BB button (as well as the external buttons).

This gets SS out of the “understand what works best for you” game.

Stop is definitely overlooked in the button design. Stop should be an action that can be assigned to any button. Stop is different than Pause (obviously) because it returns you to the beginning of the song and enables the buttons to select the next song. With Pause you are stuck in the song still and the buttons behave as if the song was still playing (accent and unpause only).

Also agree with Quad above, HOLD should be an assignable option for any button, in addition to single click and double click. Then you could have it Stop the song if you click the pause button and hold it. Triple click stop is clunky and double clicking the outro obviously you have to play through the whole outro.
