There are a few songs that we play and sing the intros or first Verse without any drums. I would like to start BB with no “Intro” when the whole band comes in by a “press” on the downbeat of the “all in” measure. The Main Pedal is set up for “release” because I use the Footswitch 1 to cycle backward through the song list and Footswitch 2 to cycle forward through the set list.
I end the songs using the Footswitch to “pause/release” and “accent” at the same time. Once the song is over, I must press the Main Footswitch one time so that I can then advance the song list using the opt Footswitch. If I have the Main Footswitch set to start songs on the “press” then I have no way to advance my song list.
The reason this is a problem is that it is too difficult to accurately come in on “release” with a BB drum beat perfectly in meter with a band already chugging along. If I press the Footswitch while tapping my foot to the “already in progress” song, there is a slight delay the throws off the entire band.
Is there a work around, or can this be fixed in the firmware update?
Thanks so much for your help on this!
