I have not yet purchased a BB as I am seeking answers to questions I have not obtained from user reviews or videos, or possibly due to my ignorance in this realm.
My trio (bass - me, guitar, accordion, harmonica, vox) uses a drum beat for about 1/3 of our songs. We are using a BOSS looping pedal but there are problematic functionalities with this pedal. I don’t know if it is because it is an old pedal or the owner does not know how to use it in the capacity in which we want to use it BUT I say - let’s get a drum pedal, dedicated to providing a beat.
So I am looking at the BeatBuddy and its mini. We just want a beat. I want to choose a beat, choose its tempo, and go. Simple. I’ll need to easily get to a chosen beat and tempo in a setlist. It will be used at live gigs. We were initially using a phone, then the looper, plugged into its own speaker and both sounded great in a small venue, with and without a PA.
So Beatbuddy Mini? or the Beatbuddy? The BB mini seems to have the functionality I need; the BB has that and alot more that I don’t need. And I’ll probably never use the software.
So - which one, my friends???
