This topic is about Dan’s Analogue Drums SplitSticks drum kit, a user-created drum set for the BeatBuddy drum pedal.
Dan’s Split Sticks Drum Kit is a drum set based on the Analogue Drums SplitSticks drum samples (http://www.analoguedrums.com/details-ss.php). SplitSticks is a Slingerland 4-piece '60s kit with Zildjian cymbals played with HotRods™ split sticks for a laid-back and intimate drum sound-somewhere between the sound of brushes and regular sticks. Tracked through a '74 Neve desk and onto a magnetic roll of tape.
You must purchase the Analogue Drums SplitSticks kit separately. This Beat Buddy drum kit will not work without you purchasing the samples. Please honor the copyright agreement of the third-party kit and patronize our music industry professionals for all they do. Currently the price of the kit is $15.
Below is the full listing of the instruments and MIDI instrument number they are assigned. A MIDI song which plays on this set will cause the instrument to sounds when that key number is played live or in a song. For example, the note C3, MIDI note nunber 52 will make a crash cymbal sound.
This drum set will not change any drum sets, songs, or sounds in your BeatBuddy pedal. This drum set is an additive overlay to your pedal and will not destroy any settings or work that you have.
- On your computer, find your BeatBuddy workspace. On a Windows computer, this is typically c:\Users\YourName\My Documents\BBworkspace. This document will refer to this location as . The user name and the workspace folder may be different on your computer.
- Download the drum kit ZIP file from Dan’s DropBox at https://www.dropbox.com/s/upaiqc5xl5sy9 … t.zip?dl=0 . Use a ZIP tool such as 7Zip to unpack the archive ZIP file onto your file system. If you put the ZIP file in your BeatBuddy workspace and unzip, the files should all go in the right folders. You should see a README file in the workspace folder, the SplitSticks.DRM drum set file in the workspace/user_lib/drum_sets folder.
- Copy your purchased drum kit sample files to your BeatBuddy work space. The BB drum kit expects the samples to be in the file path \user_lib\wave_sources\AnalogueDrums\SplitSticks\Wav. So in that last Wav folder you should see files CSlingerLndKick22-DynHR01.wav.
- Use the BeatBuddy manager software “File > OpenDrumset” to open the SplitSticks.DRM file under \user_lib\drum_sets. Select the “Drum Sets” tab and double-click AnalogueDrumsSplitSticks to load drum set. Try a few of the existing MIDI songs with the new drum set.
- If you like the set, use the BeatBuddy manager to sync the workspace with your USB-attached pedal or the BeatBuddy SD card in your computer card slot.

This drum kit has been tested with many of the BeatBuddy standard songs. Let me know if any songs do not work, if there are any bad sounds, or any other changes. I am committed to providing updates to the drum kit.
