Beat Buddy Options
Found under: Settings > Utilities > BeatBuddy
If you have a BeatBuddy pedal, you can now have OpenSongApp control many of the features of the pedal. You can even assign foot pedals in the app to send MIDI messages (assuming you have already connected the device over MIDI).
This page gives you the following options:
Edit song commands: setting up song commands so that when you load a song, the app will send various MIDI messages to connected devices. This method helps you build the BeatBuddy MIDI commands using human readable information.
Import BeatBuddy project information: The app will give you the option of scanning your BeatBuddy SD card or importing an already compiled MyBeatBuddyProject.csv file (created using a script I created). This will import the folder, song and drum kit names stored in your project for easy browsing and assigning to songs.
Imported values: Decides whether you wish to browse the BeatBuddy default songs (does not require importing project information) or imported project information.
Show songs: Show the songs on the BeatBuddy database - this will either be the pedal default project or from imported project information.
Automatically send BeatBuddy song: If a song is found in your BeatBuddy project information (or default settings) that matches the currently loaded OpenSong song fields (filename, title, also known as or BeatBuddy song), the app will send the correct song information to your BeatBuddy. This includes: folder number, song number, tempo and time signature (although time signature is ignored by the BeatBuddy, it will be passed through to other devices such as the Aeros loop studio). With this method, you don't need to build the MIDI code - the app sorts it for you - just make sure to include the song information when you edit your song.
Reset: Reset the BeatBuddy database in the app to the BeatBuddy default settings (note this doesn't change the BeatBuddy pedal, just the app database).
In order to connect the BeatBuddy to OpenSongApp via MIDI, you will need the following items:
BeatBuddy MIDI adapter (to convert the mini MIDI out on the BeatBuddy to standard MIDI connectors)
A MIDI connection for your Android device - I'd recommend something like the Yamaha MD-BT01 for wireless Bluetooth connection, but alternatively you could use a USB midi adapter (make sure to get the correct USB connection, or use an OTG cable to connect a standard USB connection to your Android device), although these obviously mean you will have a cable running between your Android device and the BeatBuddy.
If you are connecting additional MIDI devices in a loop, you will also need one standard MIDI cable per extra device. You can also extend MIDI cables using MIDI extension cables.
