Hey everyone! Just got my Beat Buddy a few days ago. Wanting to use this in a live 2-person gig environment. Before actually getting my hands on one of these units, my thinking was that I would set up different parts for each section of a song (verse 1, chorus, verse 2, bridge, etc.). In a live environment, I would want things to be as simple as possible from a triggering standpoint. I have the external 2-pedal switch. I was expecting that I could:
- single tap one footswitch to start and stop/pause a song
- single tap the same another footswitch to transition between the parts of a song
However, after spending some time with unit and reading the manual, it seems that the only way to transition from one part to another is to do a long-tap (i.e. tap, hold, release). If I just single tap, it will do a fill, but will not transition to the next part. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but in a live performance environment, I don’t want to have to worry about short tapping and long tapping…I just want to tap. LOL
Is there really no way to accomplish what I’m after here? That is, is there no way to transition parts with just a normal (short) tap?
Again, I have the external footswitch…so with 3 footswitches there’s GOT to be a way to do this, right!?!
