Questions and Answers
What hardware do I need to connect my BeatBuddy to my phone/tablet?
You will need either a physical or a Bluetooth connection from your device to the pedal.
The first thing you will need is the MIDI adapter from Singular Sound. This adapter converts the pedal’s PS/2 port to standard 5-pin MIDI In/Out ports.
Next you will need either a BLE Bluetooth device or a Midi to USB cable.
For a USB, direct connection, you can use something like the iRig MIDI 2 from IK Multimedia.
How do I sync my BeatBuddy project with BBFF?
📱 Go to Settings > “Load BeatBuddy Project” within the app
🖥 Visit https://bbff.rocks/upload with your computer
🖥 Enter the four digit code displayed within the app to link the two together
🖥 Click “Select BeatBuddy Project” and locate the folder containing your BeatBuddy project (you can just select your SD card)
🖥 You may receive a warning about uploading many files to this site. You must allow the “upload” to grant permission to read the project files. We don’t upload the project files, only meta data about the project.
🖥 You will see a summary of the project and then click “Upload to device” to complete the sync.
📱 Connect the app to your MIDI adapter and enjoy the 🥁.
Do I have to use BeatBuddy Manager?
No, you can upload your BeatBuddy project directly from your SD card. This is particularly useful if you have a second hand BeatBuddy with existing songs, or you use BeatBuddy Loader Software to update your project.
Will this app work if I’m also using the MIDI Maestro and/or the Aeros Looper?
Yes, MIDI allows multiple devices to talk to each other, so BBFF can communicate with the BeatBuddy alongside other controllers. You may need to look at setting up MIDI channels and consider in which order you wire things, but it will work. If you need help, email email@example.com
Will this app work with the BeatBuddy MINI?
No, the BeatBuddy MINI doesn’t have MIDI support so it is not possible to control it with this app.
