Using Microsoft Excel for saving CONFIG.CSV may probably cause problems.
Anyways, you’d better use either Notepad or any other plain text editors for reading/editing/saving CONFIG.CSV.
Doing it this way is guaranteed to work (if you obey the simple file structure rules).
filename.ext, 10. Song name as displayed by BeatBuddy
By the way, you can even use normal file names, like
will work perfectly well if there is indeed a file named like that next to the CONFIG.CFG!
But please note, you may run into issues when manually editing config file:
- Make sure to never ever use long file names! The pedal won’t be able to read. All file names should comply 8.3 format (8 chars max for name (dot) 3 chars max for extension).
- Make sure you use a comma after file name to delimit it from displayed song name.
- Make sure you either have a “(dot)” (like filename, 3. name) after a file name. Otherwise prepare to have BeatBuddy “eat up” one word up to the first space, as in filename, Bad Ass Song will make the pedal display Ass Song.
- Keep in mind, that ever using BBManager will mangle your awesome file names back into 8 hex digits.BBS.
