Hello to all my fellow BB owners.
I’m afraid I’ve been faring very poorly with finding different time signatures and rhythms on the BB.
I realize that you are all past this point and are speaking of doing far more advanced operations, but so far, I’ve been unable to find an actual tutorial that takes place on the BB.
The only videos I’ve found are of performers, most of whom are doing “look what I can do” renditions of their chops while using the BB. The tutorials I’ve seen that aren’t performer relate show how to do things only with a computer. I suck at using computers, and bought this excellent machine in order to back up my own performances with drum sounds that sound great. It was sold as being a device that would be easy to use. I use some fairly complex guitar effects, but I usually find something intuitive in them that allows me to operate them, usually without cracking a manual. Right now, I’d give anything for a well written manual to crack!
But so far, I’ve come up empty trying to find a 6/8 beat so I can play “Sleep Walk.” I can’t seem to find anything that’s not in 4/4 time.
I know it has to be easier than this, but I’ve been stuck for 2 days, unable to do anything not in a 4/4 straight eighths kind of feel, except for the one time I managed to get some Latin beats, which were fun, but still in 4/4 time.
I don’t know how to navigate the BB, using the arrows and knobs. If anyone can send me a link (or 10!) to help me help myself, I’d be very grateful!
