Some new tech for making music. BeatBuddy.

Techstination feature for Monday, January 5, 2015

Some new tech for making music.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Singular Sound is the name of the start up behind a new gadget called BeatBuddy.   The idea, says CEO David Packouz….is to have a drum machine that doesn’t require programming and can be used while you’re playing the guitar…

“The BeatBuddy is a drum machine in a guitar pedal format.  So it goes on the floor, it’s made out of metal, very strong, designed for a live performance environment.   Because it’s a pedal, depending on how you press the pedal, will control what the beat does.”

It is easy and fun to use.  And the story behind it…

“Well I’m a guitarist, I’m a singer, song writer and I needed a beat to play with.  And it’s very difficult to find drummers.”

Not to mention how cumbersome a full drum set can be.  The price?   About 350 dollars.   There’s more info at    You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
