First off, I’m not at all surprised about this. I raved about it before it went to market, and was absolutely blown away by it when I finally received one.
And since I’ve had the BeatBuddy, it has been an absolute game-changer for me. Funny, I actually intended to use it live, but haven’t had enough time to practice with it and write down the settings I’d use for various songs that I perform in my solo gigs. Right now it’s the “cold season” at the restaurant I perform at weekly, so I’m seated behind a piano, which makes access to my pedals a bit difficult. But once I’m playing on the patio, I’ll be using the BeatBuddy fo’ sho’!
But just because I’m not gigging with it, doesn’t mean I’m not using it. I’m not even recording much these days, but I still get song ideas, and the BeatBuddy has been an invaluable tool to help me visualize and realize a song. And for just tooling around and practicing, you couldn’t ask for a better way to play to a beat when you don’t have a drummer around.
I’m so excited for the Singular Sound guys who’ve made this thing possible. It’s an incredible tool that has brought so much value to my songwriting process.
