  • Use with Ableton Live

    As reviewed by STEVE WRIGHT on 8/12/2013

    I'm using the MIDI Buddy to control scenes that I've programmed into Ableton Live. The pedal works great. I use it to switch between verse, chorus, bridge and ending scenes. It's a solid, heavy duty product that's stood up to my sometimes overly enthusiastic foot stomps. But there was a little hitch (at least for me) in getting MIDI Buddy and Ableton to work together. I couldn't get Ableton to recognize the MIDI signals from the foot pedal. I finally landed on using Bome's MIDI Translator to translate the incoming MIDI signals from the pedal into key presses that are recognized by Ableton. There's probably a better way to do that, but I couldn't find it.

  • Use it with Ableton

    As reviewed by STEVE WRIGHT on 4/30/2013

    I was looking for a pedal to use with Ableton so that I could control which scenes to jump to while playing. I've only been using the Midi Buddy for a few weeks, but it's definitely holding up well. It's solidly built, compact and gives a definite "click" when you push a button (as opposed to the mushy response I got from another pedal I tried). I wasn't sure how easy the top row of buttons would be to use, but that's been no problem. You can rest your foot over a top pedal button without accidentally hitting a button on the bottom row. There was a bit of a learning curve in getting it to work with Ableton. I had to get an M-Audio midi-to-USB converter and Bome software. Ableton sees all of the MIDI signals from the pedal as the same hex code. Bome converts the MIDI signal to a key on the PC keyboard, if you use keys to trigger scenes in Ableton. The Rolls web site and manual didn't mention any of this.

  • Great Affordable MIDI Pedal

    As reviewed by Diabloskater on 11/22/2006

    The Midi Buddy pedal is great for controlling any MIDI capable device. I hooked it up to my MicroKorg right out of the package and it switched programs instantly. There isn't any thing to change when it is taken out of the box. Its able to plug and play. I now have it hooked up to a Behringer rack processor. It wouldn't work at first, but that was because the processor was set up to send MIDI signals. Once I changed that setting, it work great. The Pedal has start and stop song commands. The only thing that I didn't like was that the program numbers started at 0, and my processor starts a 1. So the pedal is always a number lower than my effects processor. Otherwise it is an amazing pedal. Very rugged and durable. I have dropped it and banged it into numerous objects and it still works great. Great for it's price range. An amazing MIDI pedal.
