The BeatBuddy is a revolutionary drum machine pedal that puts professional, hands-free control of your beat at your feet. Featuring high-definition recordings of real drummers, the BeatBuddy provides over 200 songs and 10 drum kits spanning rock, blues, jazz, pop, Latin, metal, funk, punk, reggae, country and more. Creating a live drummer effect has never been easier thanks to the BeatBuddy's innovative footswitch, which lets you start and stop the beat, throw in drum fills that change each time, transition between different parts of a song, end the song and add accent hits with an optional second footswitch. The BeatBuddy's massive onboard memory and optional SD card provide near endless storage for your own custom beats and songs, created using the included BeatBuddy Manager software.

Hyper-Realistic Drum Samples for Studio-Quality Sound

The BeatBuddy features 24-bit studio-quality samples of real drummers, not synthetic drum machine sounds, providing warm, dynamic percussion that sounds like a live drummer is in the room with you. With 10 unique drum kits and over 200 songs spanning 24 genres, you'll have no trouble finding the perfect beat for your music. The BeatBuddy's 32-bit floating point processing ensures your beats always sound full and natural.

Full Control at Your Feet

Designed for live use, the BeatBuddy puts complete control of your drum beats and fills at your feet. Use the intuitive footswitch to start and stop the beat, insert dynamic fills that change each time, transition between song parts, end the song and add accent hits with the optional second footswitch. The BeatBuddy's LED screen provides a visual representation of the beat so you can see exactly where you are in the song and make on-the-fly adjustments. Hands-free operation lets you focus on your instrument while the BeatBuddy supplies the rhythm.

Create Custom Beats and Songs

While the BeatBuddy comes loaded with an extensive library of styles and genres, you can also create your own custom beats and full songs using the included BeatBuddy Manager software. Upload your own WAV and General MIDI files or use the software to combine beats, fills and transitions into complete custom songs. Save your songs to the BeatBuddy's internal memory or optional SD card for live use. You can also download additional beats from the BeatBuddy community and share your own creations.

Reliable and Road-Ready

Housed in a rugged metal chassis, the BeatBuddy is built to withstand the rigors of live performance. It runs on a 9V power supply for reliable operation in any environment. The optional SD card expansion slot provides up to 32GB of additional storage for your custom beats and songs. A 1/4" headphone jack allows for silent practice.
