Hello BB Family,
Just got my new BB a couples of weeks ago and absolutely love it! Finally a drum machine for guitarist!
I dove right in and started getting acquainted with my new friend Buddy Beats. I never do things the easy way and since I could not find an existing groove that suited the rhythm for the song I chose to work on, I figured it could not be that hard to create a new drum song with the groove I was looking for. I was able to create some parts but struggled a bit on the fills ( I am not a drummer) I even tried importing a few fills from other songs to leverage what was already there. Not so fast! That created its own set of issues.
I soon found out that Buddy Manager has its limitations. I ended up exporting all the parts to my new song and working on them into Reaper. After many hours, I was able to piece together a fairly decent drum track. Whew! But as you can imagine, it is just a static backing track that I can play to with a fixed arrangement.
But I really want to take advantage of the live aspects that BB has to offer and I am looking for recommendations on how best to approach finding the right grooves–quickly–and maybe making some minor edits using BB Manager if necessary. I was also like to be able to import other grooves from other sources into the BB as well.
