When will BeatBuddy have the ability to:
- Receive/play MIDI data from external sources?
- Transmit MIDI data to external sources (DAW, etc.)?
- Change Receive/Transmit MIDI channels?
One of the reasons i purchased a BeatBuddy was to trigger sounds “live” over MIDI (using drum pads and/or a sequencer). I assumed when I purchased the BeatBuddy that it would do this since there’s a MIDI cable option, (which I also purchased), but what I didn’t realize at the time was that the MIDI functionality was limited to MIDI sync. Adding this feature would also fulfill another request (mentioned multiple times on this forum) of hearing sounds while programming them in the software.
Also, adding the ability to transmit MIDI data from the BeatBuddy to standard DAW software would be helpful when recording in the studio.
In addition, the ability to set the MIDI receive and transmit channels would be a natural feature to add at the same time as the MIDI receive/transmit functions above, especially since you’ve just added MIDI THRU capabilities in the latest firmware update.
