Custom-Made MIDI Adapter for the BeatBuddy

The BeatBuddy was designed after a great deal of experimentation, testing and development. In order to keep the drum machine the optimal size and format, we found that the standard 5-pin MIDI in and out ports wouldn't fit. So we had to utilize a custom port, the PS/2 port , to be exact. (If you’re old enough to remember, these were the main connectors for keyboards and mice before USB became the standard.)

 

The BeatBuddy MIDI Adapter Cable connects to the PS/2 port and breaks it out into separate 5-pin MIDI in and out ports. Use it alongside standard 5-pin MIDI cables to connect with MIDI controllers, DAWs, and any other MIDI-enabled gear. Once connected, the BeatBuddy can act as either the sender (also referred to as "master") or receiver (also referred to as "slave").

Instant Sync with Aeros Loop Studio and MIDI Maestro

The BeatBuddy, Aeros Loop Studio, and MIDI Maestro stand on their own as powerful units. However, they were also designed to work perfectly together. With the MIDI adapter, you can easily link up your drum machine and looper for tons of added benefits. 

Auto-quantize tracks to the beat, group stop/start, match bpm, and more on both devices at once, or control your MIDI commands via the MIDI Maestro.

I didn’t know I needed it.

It works great. I’m glad I have it and the Bb/ALS/MM combo is great. I wish I didn’t have to wait for it to come in the mail after I realized it was something I had to have.

You need this item….

Works as advertised…and it’s a needed item to connect your devices.
Should come with the devices and not a separate purchase.

Works fine, however!

What they don't tell you is you NEED AN EXTRA CABLE TO MAKE THIS WORK. Super annoying, why not just include it with this one?
