make sure you save the project using the BeatBuddy Manager (BBM) File > Save Project
in the song, use the Default Drum Set dropdown menu to find and select the drum set the song calls for; screen shots to generally illustrate the process
[*]Save Project again

What song / beat are your testing that kit out with ?
Just different ones that are in B.B. already. I have also upgraded to latest firmware.
Maybe I am wrong, but the demos I have listened to u can hear the bass guitar very clearly.
I’m sorry. No I’m not yelling. Just didn’t notice my caps were on
The default beats already loaded in the pedal do not have bass midi notes in them.
thanks man … got to thinking about that after you ask the question
been away from my BB for awhile. friend has been sick. can someone out there please post a quick demo on how to create songs using the rock with bass kit. thanks very much…
Just can’t figure how to use the rock with bass kit. If someone has the time I would greatly appreciate a lesson on creating with this kit. Thanks
Are you intending this for songs you are creating yourself, or for existing songs off the Forum?
For songs off the Forum, you need to be sure that the bass mapping in the kit matches the mapping in the song. Rock with Bass has the bass mapped at 62-88, D1 through E3. It should work with most songs that use a similar scheme or a 63 through 91 scheme.
For your own songs - create your midi. You want just the bass and drums. Once you get it sounding to your liking, make sure that your bass all fits within the range of D1 through E3. Then, select all the notes in your bass track and move everything up two octaves. The bass will now be ready to work with the kit.
Next, make sure your drums match the kit mapping. There is no kick at 35 in Rock with Bass. Make sure all your kicks are at 36. There is no snare at 40. Make sure all your snares are at 38. Etc. To check the mapping in the kit, find the kit’s name in your list of drumsets.
Double click on the kit name to open the Drumset Maker window. There you will see the instrument names and the midi value to which they are mapped.
When you are done tweaking the drums, you need to merge the drum track with the bass track. The exact technique for this will vary with the software you are using. In Logic Pro X, it’s, Edit>Join>Regions. I do not know how to do it in ANY other program, nor do I care to learn.
One you get your tracks merged, export the merged track as a midi file. Again, this will vary based upon the program. In LPX, it’s File>Export>Selection as Midi File.
Then, that midi file, can be added to a song in BB Manager. Create a new song, click on the ellipsis in the box in the main loop section, and navigate to your midi file. Select it, and it should be added to the song. Select Rock with Bass as your “Default Drum Set;” for the song. You can then demo the song.
Hey Phil I really do appreciate your time for this. I will give this a shot. I have used my BB many times but never messed with midi files.
