Can Not Export/ Sync New song list to pedal

#1

Error states “there is an invalid song in the project. Make sure all songs contain a main drum loop”. All songs do contain a main drum loop. All I did was import existing songs into a new song folder and give them new names.
I have tried to delete the new folder and recreate it but get same error when trying to sync or export to pedal.

Found the issue. I must have inadvertently added a new song file to one of the default song folders. I deleted it and all is well.

#3

I followed the great video by david step by step and got the software loaded and my pedal connected…when i tried to copy a song, it gave me the following message; “Unable to copy song data. Skipping song.”

Is anyone else having this issue ?

thanks in advance for your help

Make sure you don’t have empty songs, e.g. without a main loop in at least one of song parts.

#5

Thanks so much for your reply !
Well I started by trying to do what was posted on you tube…just replicate and put a beat in a new file…
It just keeps giving me the error message…

I was hoping to put some basic beats in, rename them and create a set list to make it easier during a gig, to get to different beats…

Getting a little frustrated…

I’m getting that error a lot also. Worked fine for about 10 songs and now i’m getting that error everytime.

Unable to copy song data, skipping song…help !!!

#7

i have had a problem with the last export that i have downloaded-getting the following message----cannot parse portable song C:/users/Randy/desktop/maryJanesLastDance(2)Sng. skipping file :?

#8

I would get rid if the parenthesis “()” and try again. Maybe delete the 2nd version and just import the one originally downloaded. Ensure BeatBuddy names are alpha numerical only.

#9

removing the (2) did nothing to change the issue- same pop up

#10

Please post the links where you get the songs that are unable to be imported with this error.

They were originally exported with a wrong BBManager version. They should be fixed and reuploaded so you can then download a corrected song file.

Thanks for your understanding!

here’s one of them

Upgrade your BBManager. The latest released version is 1.3.3 - it is able to import that file normally.

#13

ok I upgraded to 13.3 and now its giving me the error
Internal Parsing error

#14

it also says , unable to map_p buffer

#15

This is strange. I’ll download the version that was published to make sure.

#16

ok thanks !!

#17

Version 1.3.3 is confirmed to load the song.
The problem lies somewhere else. Delete your project (hope you don’t have a lot of changes) and re-download the content. As a last resort, this will definitely help.

#18

i uninstalled the BBmanager and reinstalled it …no luck. What do you mean delete the project. Im just trying to import a song into a folder I have on the SD card which I named setlist.

#19

well its working now !!!

#20

ok never mind…I lied, it is not working now. It lets me import the songs into a folder but it will not let me synce it .
I am sooooo frustrated with this thing. I wish there was a number you could call to speak with a real person !!!
