Love my BB. I would love it even more if beats could be humanized (slight random variations in timing) to get rid of the robotic feel of beats/fills that have been programmed versus those recorded live.
I have tried the “slightly tipsy” setting but this actually varies tempo up and down which causes the BB to drift out of time with click-track / backing etc. Would be great if tempo could be maintained, and just the timing of drum hits varied slightly - that’s how e.g. Superior Drummer etc. work as far as I understand. Grateful for your consideration Singular Sound!
Te beats that came with the unit are played in by a real drummer, so they already do sound a bit human. I don’t know about the aftermarket (including Singular) beats, but the beats that came with my BB are not locked in to the time signature when you look at them in a MIDI editor.
But for locked-in aftermarket beats, I like your suggestion. A lot.
Hi Joel - yes, the preset beats are indeed human. But for those of us who play a lot of covers / praise and worship etc. and program beats and fills to match those songs, it would be great to get the next best thing via a humanization function. There are thousands of users on various facebook groups exchanging beats for songs in this way, but they all end up becoming a bit robotic, in return for faithfulness to the original beats. BeatBuddy has become something of a semi-pro tool now - this would make it another step better!
Any other interest in this? Seems to me like it would be a huge benefit for anyone who uses programmed beats.
