Hello, I just received my BeatBuddy and am having trouble figuring out how to get things setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated. So here’s what I’m working with:
Guitar, Yamaha THR10X guitar amp, Ditto Looper, BeatBuddy, monitor speakers.
I understand that the Ditto Looper (not having midi-synch) isn’t an optimal looper pedal for the Beatbuddy, however I don’t have another $400+ to purchase a BoomerRang III or Infinity looper with midi-synch. With that said, I’ve seen videos where folks are first recording the drum tracks into the Ditto Looper, and then just layering loops over the newly recorded drum loop on the Ditto. While not the optimal approach, this method gets away from the synch problem.
The problem I’m running into is that I can’t run the Beatbuddy and looper together… when I run the Beatbuddy through the guitar amp, it sounds like crap. And if I run the looper through the monitor speakers, I can’t access my fx or distortion available on my guitar amp.
So my question is: what setup would allow me to use the Ditto Looper + the Beatbuddy together. Again, I understand that I won’t have midi-synch, but I’m just needing to record the drums on the looper first, and them loop over that.
Thank you kindly and excuse my ignorance when it comes to these setups.
