Hi everyone, just registered to try to find some help with my beatbuddy. I bought it used a while ago to use at home for practicing mostly.
Now the issue I’m having is that it’s constantly making a low staticky/electric buzz kind of sound. It comes through both the regular outputs and the headphone out and is the same volume regardless of what volume I have set on the beatbuddy (changing main volume and/or headphone volume makes no difference). The sound is there even if the beatbuddy isn’t playing, removing the SD card while it’s on makes the noise go away (though I suspect this is because the BB defeats the output when I pop out the card).
I’ve read through many threads about similar issues but haven’t found a solution.
Things I’ve tried:
Making sure the beatbuddy is connected to it’s own wall outlet
Switching SD card
Tried two different 9v adapters
Tried different output cables.
I get the feeling it has to do with the power supply, but I’m starting to think the pedal itself is defective.
