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.

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.

Best drum pedal ever!!

Beat Buddy all day long, all the things you get straight out of the box with the ability to add via downloads. To me this is the best drum pedal out there and it's competition is not even close. Want real drum sounds and real drum kits? Look no further.

quite an amazing drum machine- intuitive program, absolutely realistic sounds and beats. probably easier than any other drum machine I've used in the last 25 years

Cool idea but can be fussy

It sounds great but not pedal board friendly because it creates a high pitch hum/buzz that can only be dealt with by putting it on its included power supply. even from high output jacks. musically it's a great practice tool for home practice. Digitech Trio+ far more useable in my opinion.

Great Unit With Some Glaring Deficiencies.

This has probably been one of my favorite and most useful equipment purchase in the last few years. Due to COVID 19 we were forced to reduce the size of our band from 7 to 4 people. In doing so we felt it would be better to have four main performers/singers and not use a live drummer. This lead to purchasing the BeatBuddy based on the large number of positive reviews it's received, and i haven't been disappointed. Along with all it's positives, it does have some limitations though. The sound quality is exceptional and very realistic. Programming your drum tracks is relatively easy and straightforward as it comes with a pretty wide variety of stock drum tracks and and drum models. I augmented these drum tracks and drum models with after market extensions available from the manufacturer which helped round out the overall capabilities. The main process of building drum tracks is done on your PC or Mac through a program called BeatBuddy Manager and then downloaded to a memory card which is inserted in the BeatBuddy for live performances. The Manager program is adequate, but fairly rudimentary and can be somewhat confusing in how you work with it. It has a MIDI editor for building or modifying drum tracks, but it's very basic and tedious to work with. Hopefully this will be an area that will be improved through future updates. In terms of live performance I don't use the BeatBuddy pedal itself. I control it using MIDI messages which I program and send from my Helix Floor unit. I would suspect for any type of professional usage you would probably want to invest in some sort of MIDI controller as the BeatBuddy pedal interface is quite limited and hard to incorporate into your performances.

I would buy this product again!

So far our venues only want signals and duos with COVID, so it helps playing as a duo or for u-tube videos.

Take your solo gig to the next step!

Trying to get steady work as a solo artist can be tough especially when competing against karaoke machines and the such. With the beat buddy, you have an entire drum ensemble at the tips if your toes. It's really versatile and customizable with the online software and sound library. Make your own beats or switch drum sets, it's all up to you. A bit pricey but is worth every single penny!

First Impressions

5

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!
