I think it is great that people are pushing the limits of the Beat Buddy. However I feel the simplicity of this pedal might get lost on those reading through the forum while considering a purchase.
I am running XP so the manager software is unavailable to me. I just used the pedal as-is out of the box at our band practice. I figured out ahead of time what beats worked with our songs. I also practiced for the last week to get comfortable pedaling fills and transitions. Our drummer didn’t show up so I patched the beat buddy into an open channel on our mixing board, turned it up in the monitors and it worked perfectly for our needs. The sound was great and everyone liked working with it. I only had a few fumbles on the pedal but chalk that up to the learning curve. It gave us appropriate, interesting and completely realistic drum beats to play against.
I did make one small change. I disabled the intro fills. I just started the beat, we counted off 4 and away we went.
Keep it simple! It is a powerful tool!
