I’ve been using the BeatBuddy paired with my Boomerang Looper for almost a year now and I wish I discovered this earlier. It made almost everything easier for me. Here is one of my original songs written in Tagalog.
I bought both the Reggae Drumset and Beats by Goran Rista and it is awesome both for home practice and gigging. It is definitely a must if you love reggae! I also sometimes play around with them on BB Manager, editing MIDI and swapping drumsets.
I placed my BB under my board together with a mixer for plug and play use and to minimize setup time at the venue. I just have an external foot switch to control the BB, whereas, one of the footswitches were program to be as ‘main’ and the other is for ‘pause/unpause’ and scrolling songs.
