I bought a brand new Beatbuddy but am completely unable to get any sound at all out of it.
I cranked the volume to 100%, plugged it into an amp, pressed the pedal to start it, no sound.
I cranked the headphone volume to 100%, plugged my headphones jack into it, pressed the pedal to start it, no sound.
I did plug in the 9v power supply that came with it. I am able to see and select songs, and pressing the pedal appears to work just fine. I see the intro, parts and fills being selected. But I can’t get any actual sound out of this thing.
Firmware 3.2.0 according to the About screen, and I did try re-updating the firmware, just in case.
Could someone please tell me the secret for getting actual sound out of this pedal?
thank you this post . it just got me out of a panic- my beatbuddy is less than a week old !
i lost the sound then got a NO SONGS error message. The NOSONGS error message arrived after i reformatted the sd card to then download the backup zip files-
This experience taught me to reformat my SD card only to EX-FAT 32 for mac !! and also that by following the four folder and one file replacement fix as mentioned by userJustwannaplay above- my beatbuddy world is back on track - thankyou forum
Justwannaplay, you made my weekend! The Buddy came to my doorstep on a Friday afternoon and I was smiling ear-to-ear at being able to play all weekend. I put the SD card in: no sound from headphones, through my mixer, through an amp… what a really crappy feeling of being let down. So I googled Beatbuddy no sound, and this post came up. I click the link you provided, download the package, compare the folders and sure enough, Beatbuddy sent me a card without the drums. Kind of ironic, isn’t it? Anyway, despite their stupidity, and because of your good heartedness to post, I’m now rocking. I can’t thank you enough.
