What do I need to open Samples and loops that I download?

Here’s a screen shot of the message that I get.


I don’t have a Mac but you need to download the file not open it up, once it is downloaded then add it to the BB.

With BBM installed I found .SNG not associated with a BeatBuddy app. Like Windows, OSX is asking what to open it with and if it should be a permanent association. To fix, select the sng from finder and select enable all applications and then navigate to the BBManager.app folder then select the app and it will open BBM and load the song. Or as was mentioned you can open BBM and then open the sng as usual instead of via finder.

I think I did what you suggested but no success so far. Here’s what I did: I selected the song in my downloads folder. I selected ‘enable all applications’ and chose BB Manager (though there is no .app on the end-it just says BBManager). I then choose open and it appears to open in BB Manager but when I click play, I get this error message: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ymmegl2z7qn78oq/Screenshot%202015-03-07%2009.57.12.png?dl=0
Do you have any idea what I have done wrong?

Which file are you trying to download? Also you want to open the BB manager and import the song into it.

I’ve downloaded a few of the songs that members have made available like The Weight, Knocking on heavens door, & I know you rider. I did try to import the song into BB manager but it won’t play. I keep getting error messages, like this one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ymmegl2z7qn78oq/Screenshot 2015-03-07 09.57.12.png?dl=0

It’s complaining about an incomplete song definition with an empty part. Not sure how incompletely defined songs are able to be saved. usually BBM complains when a section is added with no midi attached to it. Are all doing that or some? If all, maybe BBM reinstall, if some they just might not be good sngs, corrupted files maybe? Also noticed that even if associated and BBM launches the song doesn’t import to BBM automatically so best to import in BBM as Psalm suggested.

There is a song in your project that is messed up. You should either correct it, or delete it altogether.
Repeat this process until you don’t get this error message :slight_smile:

Here is an example of how a “bad” song looks like:

Those songs loaded on my BB no problem… try one at a time.
