I have a new beatbuddy, which I updated to the newest firmware tonight (1/1/20).
My Midi Maestro is on 1.6.
It’s clear the Beatbuddy is getting SOMETHING via midi, but it’s definitely not behaving as intended when the MIDI Maestro is in Beatbuddy Mode. For example, the tempo controls aren’t doing anything, the start stop simply turns the beatbuddy screen red, but the scroll up/down is working.
I did reset the beatbuddy to factory default.
Also, the MIDI Maestro quick start guide indicates you need to download the app, which the website says is “coming soon”.
Lastly, the MIDI Maestro will not show up as a discoverable bluetooth device via my phone or my PC, so… I’m not sure what to do there, although with no app, it probably doesn’t even matter.
This is becoming annoying… Not a great introduction to these products for me!
