I bought this Beat Buddy on the second wave of pre-orders in July of 2014. I was a bit skeptic at first after watching the videos from the maker. I thought....to good to be true. I was wrong!!! Is sounds absolutely amazing!!! I bought the pedal and the footswitch and I'm sure glad I did! You need them both to take full advantage of its features. It comes with 10 different drum sets and lots of different music styles. You can adjust the tempo and every time you hit the pedal while playing it performs a different fill for the verse and the chorus.A must to add to any rig! Plus and musician can use it whether playing an instrument or just singing. When I first plugged mine in at practice the lead singer thought the drummer was finally on time to practice. :-)

Worked on this item for a piano-playing friend who purchased the Beat Buddy. We spent 3+hours on this learning how to use the item, downloading the Beat Manager software, reading the manual, etc. Could not get the software to work on my Macbook, nor could we get the pedal to connect to the Mac via USB. Tried many times - no luck. This software should be named the "Not Ready For Primetime" Manager. We did enjoy the many varying beats on the pedal, and my friend has decided to keep the pedal and use it "as is" -meaning, only holding out dim hopes that the software manager will someday work with a Mac so we can organize the sounds and download new ones.

Drummer late? No worries! BeatBuddy is here!

Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

More than words can explain. It is the perfect companion to practice, or in my case, solo gigs. If you're drummer is ever late for practice, this can definitely fill the void too. Sounds very realistic, not like a MIDI box.

    Great sound. A lot of fun. Takes practice to use. Seems difficult to use with a computer but I have a hard time using computers anyway. It would be better to separate the controls from the footswitch.

      Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

      If you are in need of a drummer, this is the way to go. This pedal along with the software you use on your computer PC/MAC to make any changes, takes a Drum Machine to a whole new level. I have owned Roland, Alesis, and Yamaha, but this one is a whole step above, in sound and features. There is a learning curve, but you will not be disappointed at all.
      Has fill on demand,which by the way is various fill types. Start/Stop, and intro, and these can all be changed to suit to taste. Plus many styles of drum sounds. Also with Software like OnSong and a Bluetooth devise like puc+ you can program the BeatBuddy with your IPAD, unreal. Switch to your song on OnSong and the Beatbuddy will go right to the beat you programmed in the BeatBuddy. No more looking for the patch you need to play. It is instant. Also you can control more then just one, add a looper and pass the MIDI commands unto a looper and never hold up a show again. You can also add another Pedal for MORE control. I am just barley scratching the surface here.
      I love this thing, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

      They have a great forum where you trade songs and learn all about the devise. Insane how good this thing sounds, not just it's feature rich, but it really sounds good. This thing is Brutal Good.

        Like this allot but it will take a while to learn how to properly use it. Everything is well documented. Web user forums and manufacturer web sites are all very helpful. I emailed for technical assistance and got response same day. The company seems to be very customer service oriented. Construction is very good.

          This is a truly revolutionary product - there is nothing like it on the market. The drum sounds are recording quality and it is easy to use right out of the box. There is a learning curve for the more sophisticated features and management software, but the effort is well worth the result. For anyone who wants to invoke the midi features, the possibilities are endless. This is a godsend for anyone who wants to practice or perform with a drummer, but remain a solo performer. Truly amazing.

            Love it!!! I just wish it had a better memory then a little card. Specially for the cost of it. But it is very fun right out of the box. It likes to move around a lot. I don't like using Velcro on my pedals. So I will have to figure something to help. The sound is very good and love the metal !!!!!!!!

              I use this in my little studio. Have not had it very long. I really love it. It's a little pricey. I know it's new ,but I worry a little that the memory card might go bad. They have a free download to fix it if your card is corrupt. I have had good cards from other things that I have losses everything and then in this case I would have to buy another card ,but maybe it lasts a long time. They make more drum beats for you to add but they want more money and more money. It already costs a lot, so I really don't want to spend more money even though they look like they have a good selection. But again after the pedal and they foot switch that's a lot of money and if you keep buying there updated drum beats it could end up costing a lot. I do love it.
