Performing worship music is important to any congregation. It helps people to engage with the service and builds a community around your church's message. 

Creating a powerful sound involves a great deal of practice. Bands that perform worship music have to work hard to get their music tight. Having the right gear can help Sunday service go off without a hitch. 

Our BeatBuddy drum machine pedal is the perfect companion for performing worship music. It shows up on time, stays in time, and expands the creative possibilities at your disposal. 

Make better worship music with the BeatBuddy. Here's how it works: 

Better Symmetry with BeatBuddy 

Being a worship leader is a huge undertaking. And when you're leading the band, that means you need to dictate how the drums are being played and when. You need your dummer to change tempo and volume on a dime. 

Sometimes, that's tough to find. The BeatBuddy drum machine pedal gives you that right out of the box. You can switch song parts, add transition fills, adjust accent hits and change the volume with the tap of your foot. That means your drums are on point every time

That means less practice time, and more confidence. Not to mention, practicing to an authentic, professionally recorded drum beat is better than a click, and everyone in the band is going to improve as a result. 

Truth is, a lot of church bands can't practice every single day. Having to meet up with a drummer for every practice is daunting. By getting yourself a BeatBuddy you can always practice to a beat, whether you play guitar, bass or keys. Practice by yourself so that when you come together, every one is sync.

You may have heard that the drums are the most vital component of worship music. That's because it drives the energy of the song. The BeatBuddy gives you complete command over that energy, and that means your message will shine through. 

Listen to two top-notch Worship Leaders explain how it works for them: 


Authentic Sound, Authentic Content

Every single drum pack we release is recorded on real drum kits. Most drum machines can't hold a candle to the real thing, and that's a shame. When the drums sound plastic or robotic, it doesn't produce authentic energy. 

Think about it. A drum kit isn't just an amalgamation of noise. The bass drum, snare drum and kick drum all have their own frequencies, and you play them with dynamic velocities. 

And that's what gospel music is all about. Bringing an authentic message through sincere sound. When you take the stage with the BeatBuddy, you're bringing truly professional drum samples with you. With studio quality 24bit non-quantized sound, you get a drummer pedal that sounds human

Here's how we do it:

Hundreds of Drum Styles to Play With

Experimentation is an important component of musical growth. Guitarists -- worship music guitarists in particular -- often work hard to build a pedal board with tons of unique effects. This way, when they need to create a powerful atmosphere, they are always up to the task. 

A drum machine app can't effectively simulate a real church drum kit. The best drum for church is one that can match the diversity of your worship set, which often spans genres, moods and tempos.

The BeatBuddy comes right out of the box with more than 220 drum styles, 24 genres, and 10 different customizable drum sets. Mix and match sounds to complement your performance style. Play a hard rock style on a Latin drum set. Techno patterns on blues drums. If you can think it, you can play it.
