No, I am not a shareholder, and my only connection with BeatBuddy is being a happy user. But I hope for success with this product, because it’s a very useful drummachine with a lot of possibilities – especially in the future! The BB should be a dynamic tool – a machine that I can adapt to my changing needs.
I have installed the BB manager, I even managed to download a new song – but it was a hard process filled with dead ends, trials and strange error messages. When it’s so difficult to install new songs and change the setup, the BB might end as a “frozen moment in time”, that don’t reflect my changing needs. The BB might end collecting dust on the shelve.
On the other hand: imagine when I show my friends in my music community, how I keep on finding new and useful patterns and songs – that the BB is the solution to our musical needs – no matter what kind of musical style we need. Then the BB will be a steady sales success and not just a shortlived idea. My focus (like many other BB users) is playing music, and I am not interested in digging deep into programming. So I am hoping for an active community creating new songs and drumsets. Yes, I would even be willing to pay for expansion packs – and I guess many other will.
But it all boils down to ease of use – In short: Do something about that BB manager and make it more user-friendly.
