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.

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.

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.

Unlimited Additional Content
Download more songs and drum sets from the 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.

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.

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.

First Impressions


I already have a programmable drum machine and midi drum options in my DAW. But was looking for something that I could easily add to live performance and give me some control over starts, fills and endings. This pedal is the perfect solution. The big pluses are that you can manage your beats and songs via the provided SD card and their Beat Buddy Manager software and the fact that you can insert your instrument through beat buddy and send both to your amp. So you just need one input into your sound system to have percussion and your instrument playing together. Overall build quality is very good. They provide everything you need in the box. Only recommendation is to plan for some setup and learning curve.




Very happy with this product


I'm really positive impressed about this BeatBuddy! Fidelity of sound and facility to use knock me out. Especially about Brazilians rhythms that isn't so easy to find as I heard on this equipment. Good job!



Good product


Good choice. Works as advertised. Staff at Sam Ash was helpful.



Just ok drum machine


It's an ok drum machine...but I Wasn't really impressed with the way the drums sounded through my PA system



Yes ... I'd buy it again...... thanks Tim Z.....


Excellent device .... easy to use .... worth the $$$





Love it use it constantly. Sounds so much better than drum sounds in my loop core deluxe, and Ravo mp10. I guess it should, being it cost as much as both. Thanks Xmas & Bday! Great for Busking, demos, practice, performance...I'm renaming it UpBeat Buddy!



I would buy this again

Nice little "plug in" drummer, without the drama!....Seriously great tool for the musician who wants to be a machine.....or enhance solo performances!



Perfect for writing and jamming alone
