- Ability to play .wav files
- and/or use the ASDR system. That is, ATTACK, Sustain, Decay, Release for real synth sounds. I mostly use my Beat Buddy for upright bass backing tracks, and without the ASDR system the bass does not sound as good, so that’s why I have to use .wav files.
I know the Beat Buddy is a perfromance tool, and I love that, but for me I use more backing tracks. It’d be great to have the ability to use the Beat Buddy as a performance tool that I can trigger songs sections on the fly AND have the abilty to play my .wav backing tracks.
I currently use the DigiTech JamMan solo XT for my backing tracks. It’s fine, but it’s display only has numbers and is nothing close to as good as the Beat Buddy screen that enables me to put in song titles. Furthermore, I like that the Beat Buddy has the midi sync capabilities for looping etc.
Overall, I would rather use my Beat Buddy than the JamMan XT, but I can’t because I mostly use .wav files. I also think the Beat Buddy has a way better community support system and I really just like the Beat Buddy better. Especially, thanks to @Phil_Flood for being super helpful!!! He taught me how to convert my midi files to the Beat Buddy compatible files.
