The first drum machine pedal for every musician. Intelligent simplicity. Professional capability.
…Because every song needs a live beat.
POWERFUL SOUND Award-winning, ultra-realistic 24-bit recordings of real drummers. Beats are non-quantized (not set to a grid), making BeatBuddy the first drum machine to not sound like a machine.
COMPLETE CREATIVE CONTROL Effortlessly insert fills, transition from verse to chorus, add accent hits, throw in drum breaks, and more, to create an unprecedented live drummer effect. Unlike backing tracks, BeatBuddy enables you to decide live what the beat does, fully hands-free.
FIND YOUR BEAT With over 200 songs in 21 genres available right out of the box, you’ll be sure to find the beat you want. All time signatures are available, from 3 4 to 5 4, to 7 8 and beyond.
Play any song on one of 10 included drum kits. Want to play Latin beats with brushes? Or Heavy Metal on a hand drum set? Beatbox the blues? With BeatBuddy, you tell your drummer what to play.
UNLIMITED ADDITIONAL CONTENT Download more songs and drum sets from our ever-expanding Premium Content Library, create your own content with the included PC/Mac software, or discover and share new material on the BeatBuddy Community Forum. The possibilities are limitless.
VISUAL METRONOME The full color LCD screen displays the beat in real time, making it easy to perfect your timing, improve your rhythm, learn new time signatures, and explore new styles of music.
MIDI SYNC Keep your MIDI enabled looper, effects and other MIDI devices perfectly in time to the beat with MIDI Sync. BeatBuddy can both control and be controlled by other MIDI Sync-enabled devices.
CREATE GIG LISTS Put your favorite BeatBuddy content or your own uploaded songs into special folders: “Friday Night Gig”, “Wednesday Coffee House”, “Album in Progress”, for easy and seamless recall.
DRUMS FOR EVERY MUSICIAN Give yourself the power of drums, no matter what you play. No instrument is needed for BeatBuddy to work -- and BeatBuddy works with every instrument. Stereo Inputs enable you to combine your instrument's sound with the BeatBuddy's drums and adjust each sound channel without the need for a mixer.
OFFICIAL BEATBUDDY FOOTSWITCH Get additional control with the Official BeatBuddy Footswitch. Select songs hands-free, tap tempo, add accent hits, and drop the beat -- for even more powerful, realistic live control.
CUSTOMIZABLE FEATURES BeatBuddy is simple to use, but with the customizable features you can go deep. This is your tool, you decide how it works.
