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").

The only way to do MIDI on your Beat Buddy...

Works as expected. It's clear that there just wasn't enough physical space on the Beat Buddy to fit two full-size MIDI ports, so this is a good solution, despite the fact that it's proprietary. Nice that they offer a MIDI option at all -- they definitely didn't need to do that.

The adapter works well just as intended.
