Hey all. I’ve decided I want to use OnSong or similar to control the BeatBuddy in relation to song selection. Clicking through 100+ songs using a pedal (especially a noisy one like the SS footswitch) is just not practical. I can bend over after each song to select it which at my age isn’t the best. So I’m looking at using OnSong to control it.
My pedal setup is the BeatBuddy as a 2 channel output (bass on one channel, drums on the other) running stright to the mixer. The BB controls the MIDI sync into my Aeros, which then daisy chanins again to a HX Stomp. All fairly basic and runs well.
So, from my research what I need to connect this to my iPad with OnSong is a Bluetooth Midi wireless adapter and a Midi 1in/2 out thru box? So this will let OnSong speak to the BB and still allow the Midi Sync from the BB flow through to the Aeros and HX Stomp? Tell me if I am wrong here.
These are the devices I am looking at getting (I am in Australia and this is a local music store)
The other thing I need to do, I use the iPad as the controller for a Behringer XR18 digital mixer which is run through WiFi. I figure running this with OnSong through the BB at the same time should not be an issue as one is BlueTooth and the other is WiFi?
I hope all this makes sense. I think I am correct but would like someone to give me the thumbs up before I pull the trigger.
