I purchased the Singular Sound Midi Maestro primarily to control my Beat Buddy, and it excelled at this task with minimal setup—simply select Beat Buddy mode, connect, and you’re ready to go. As I delved deeper into the Midi Maestro and its companion app, I discovered its remarkable versatility in custom mode. It has since become the central command for my entire pedalboard, prompting a complete reevaluation and enhancement of my workflow in ways I hadn’t anticipated. The product has impressed me to such an extent that I intend to purchase another Midi Maestro to manage my Beat Buddy, allowing me to maintain the first as the dedicated nucleus of my pedalboard setup.
This pedal can do so much more than what I use it for and it does what I need so well! As an add-on to the BB it can do great things like on the fly tempo changes (by single bpm up or down) which is so great. Imagine you got tapped the tempo a little off, with a couple more taps of your foot you can fix it. That is just one example. As an add on to the Aeros/BB combo the ability to navigate your songs becomes easier IMO. You can do alot without the Maestro but it makes everything better/easier and puts more options at your disposal in the moment.
I have the Midi Maestro, Aeros and BB. I am unable to make to MM send midi program change messages to my Source Audio C-4 synth pedal to change presets in custom mode. The C-4 synth pedal has 128 presets that can be accessed via midi. I asked the Tech support team at Sweetwater about this and after trying to do it themselves they
contacted you about this issue as well as myself. After contacting you Sweetwater told me the MM is unable to send preset change info via the MM app.
Disappointed because I had to purchase the Disaster Area Designs DMC.micro PRO controller just for the C-4 synth.
If possible please update the firmware on the MM to include this capability (it should be possible since it is a midi controller). My Roland GR-55 is also able to simply scroll thru presets on the C-4 without any configuration. I just went midi out of the GR-55 to the C-4 and it worked. However it is not the way I need to use the GR-55 and the C-4 together. Please update the MM to be able to send custom mode preset scrolling.
Once I stopped trying to pair the device with my phone in my Bluetooth menu (don't do this), everything worked seamlessly. The app is functional and the saved commands list helps keep things organized and accessible if you're custom programming cues. If you're programming control for multiple devices like I am this is very important and time saving. A 'save as' option would make it even smoother, maybe that'll show up.
I am currently using this to control the Voicelive 3, POD HD, Ableton live, Kaoss Pad 2, and an EhX ModRex. This is a powerful unit. The displays are nice and visible on stage, though the ability to dim the brightness a bit would be awesome.
Two things that would markedly improve this are: a desktop interface (the app works fine but yeah) and most importantly...
A MIDI CLOCK.
If this pedal generated midi clock commands it'd be pretty close to perfect. As it's designed to link with the beat buddy it passes time code through perfectly. I don't always play with drum loops and in live settings I need to make changes to my time based effects on the fly. I have it programmed to send tap tempo to my pedals that will receive it but the Voicelive doesn't hear external tap tempo, only time code. A midi clock would support the end user that doesn't want to pay to integrate another drum machine.
Also, I'm using Roland midi cables and have had NO ISSUE with them staying seated in the pedal.
4.5/5. Nice Work.
NO MIDI CLOCK IS THE ONLY REAL DOWNFALL
everything else is aesthetics.
