Several have suggested that a remote display would be handy for the BeatBuddy. this could be accomplished if the Beatbuddy could receive program changes and other midi data.
If it did, then a simple IOS or Android app could be written to send this data to the BB and control it remotely. And, since the app could display what info it’s sending,and receiving, then a reasonibly accurate idea of what’s happening on the BB could be displayed on the iPad.
there are several apps which can send midi data out to a hardware device, and one can even create an on-screen midi control surface to interact with outboard hardware.
I am not yet sure how well this would work for those of us who cannot see, but since IOS and Android have many features for blind folks, this may just be useful for many purposes.
