So… I think I unterstand the basics of the BB manager software.
The thing I struggle with is the process of how to create beats for a song.
I can copy files back and forth between the SD card and my DAW, but since the DAW doesn’t use the same drum samples as the Beat Buddy, what you create is not really what you get once you play things back on the BB.
While it’s doable to edit an existing beat and sort of get an idea what the result could be, I haven’t found an easy way to create songs from scratch.
I have a pad controller and a DAW that would allow easy beat creation. If the BB could be hooked up via MIDI in a way that I could use it as an external instrument, I could program some patterns that way. If I understand things correctly, with the current firmware MIDI is only used to sync, it can’t read note infos.
Has anybody been successful with song creation beyond just doing basic editing to the existing material? If so, could you please elaborate - either here or even better - with a youtube video?
