I received my beatbuddy and then was sent on assignment Mid-November and didn’t have a chance at all to utilize it… I was starting to make progress with it and really love it.
I have done much searching and have yet to find a full blown “Workflow” (at least one that is effective) for those of us wanting to chop up Standard Midi Files… I have many midi files and I find that I can pull them into Reaper (which I own) and cut out a section but when I export them and try to place them into any slot in the Manager program, it says that this MIDI file has no events…
Sometimes, If I bring them into Ableton 8.2.6 (Which I also own) and the re-export them, it will then work… Although… Only Sometimes…
If anyone else is doing what I am trying to do with success, I sure would like to know your workflow (including versions of programs).
I have created an XML for MidiFileMapper that converts number 35 bass drum and the Electronic Snare sound to note 36 bass drum and Acoustic Snare sound. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to share it… This script doesn’t seem to do anything negative to the midi file but fix the note mappings.
