It would read the first options in the list... and set BBud.
Now it seems  that BBud reads all presets and sets to the last drum style & tempo in the options list...

You have Settings > Audio & MIDI > Send MIDI Presets Together turned on. This means all the presets attached to a song will be sent when you select a song, leaving the BeatBuddy set to the last program change in the list. You would need to turn that off to send only the first MIDI preset in the list.

Yesterday's big release adds an "…on Song Selection" option after Settings > Tempo & Pitch > Send Tempo to BeatBuddy. With both of these options turned on, BandHelper will set the tempo on a connected BeatBuddy when you select a song, without starting the BeatBuddy playback. With this new setting turned off, BandHelper sets the BeatBuddy tempo and starts playback when you start the tempo function, as before.

Re: BeatBuddy MIDI integration - tempo change

Hello.

Is there a way to change the tempo on the BeatBuddy during a song? For example, like Freebird speeding up at the end. Also, to slow the beat to a stop at the end of a song.

I have been researching the BB forum but can't find a solution. Just wondering if anyone here has any ideas.

Thanks in advance,
dawnpgeo

See "Tap Tempo" and "Inc/Dec" in the BeatBuddy manual:

Thanks Arlo.

That is interesting. Is there a way to send the CC-117 code from the app while the song is playing on the BB? I have my BB foot switch set to pause and outro. I'm wondering if I would have to reconfigure those for this to work.

Yes, you could trigger the sending of MIDI from BandHelper using a separate foot switch:

http://www.bandhelper.com/tutorials/remote_control.html

If you wanted the tempo adjust functions available during any song, you could create MIDI presets for those messages, and attach them to your layout. Then you could send them using the "Send Layout MIDI 1-10" remote control actions, which can be mapped to individual foot switch buttons.
