BeatBuddy Drum Machine Pedal
BeatBuddy: Pedal Drum Machine includes over 200 songs in 21 genres – all in award-winning 24-bit recordings of real drummers.
Non-quantized beats make BeatBuddy the first drum machine to not sound like a machine. Complete creative control of the beat, right out of the box, no programming necessary. Getting your groove on has never been so easy!
BeatBuddy is the perfect accessory for guitarists, bassists and keyboard players, or anyone who wants live control of a beat with the hands-free ease of a pedal. Unlike traditional drum machines, BeatBuddy is a small, single pedal that offers real-time creative control, making it ideal for solo players, singer/songwriters and music educators.
“Any musician can attest that good drummers are hard to come by, many venues don’t have the space for a drum kit, and drum machines aren’t practical for jamming or live gigging,”
said BeatBuddy’s inventor, guitarist David Packouz. “BeatBuddy solves these issues by giving guitarists, bass players and even keyboard players something they never had before:
the power of a drum machine with the hands-free simplicity of a pedal.  Complete creative control.”
The BeatBuddy enables musicians to effortlessly insert fills, transition from verse to chorus, add accent hits such as cymbal crashes or hand claps, and throw in drum breaks to create an
unprecedented live drummer effect.
In addition to being a powerful performance tool, the BeatBuddy visually displays the beat, which makes it an invaluable educational device for improving rhythm and learning new time signatures.
“The next generation of musicians will have much more solidly innate rhythmic chops.  Using a fun device like the BeatBuddy encourages music students to explore and challenge themselves musically,” said Cleaveland Jones, musical director of the Miami School of Rock.  ” I see it becoming standard in every classroom and in every practice space.”
With non-quantized MIDI recordings of real studio session drummers, multi-layered dynamic samples and advanced loop transition algorithms, BeatBuddy accomplishes another first: a drum machine that doesn’t sound like a machine.
BeatBuddy comes pre-loaded with 10 unique drum kits and includes more than 200 songs in a wide variety of styles.  Beyond the pre-loaded content, musicians can also create any song or drum set with the included BeatBuddy Manager PC/Mac software, download new content from the ever-expanding BeatBuddy Online Library, and share their creations or discover user-generated content on BeatBuddy’s Community Forum.
Other features include tempo adjustment via a knob or tap tempo, hands-free song advance and tap tempo control, MIDI sync for integration with MIDI-based devices, a headphone jack, SD card slot, mini USB connection, full stereo sound and more.

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.
